Crazy Heart Trailer

Fox Searchlight has debuted the trailer for Scott Cooper's Crazy Heart starring Jeff Bridges and Maggie Gyllenhaal as well as Colin Farrell and Robert Duvall. This is the indie film that a month ago no one even knew about. Then they screened it for Oscar bloggers, who loved it and proclaimed that Bridges has a shot at winning Oscar, and then Searchlight set it for release on December 11th just in time for the Oscars. Here's the official trailer for the film which, to be quite frank, looks amazing. From this trailer alone, I'd say it looks like Jeff Bridges will win. I haven't seen it yet, but I'm already sold, it looks like the next Wrestler or Once.

Bad Blake is a broken-down, hard-living country music singer who's had way too many marriages, far too many years on the road and one too many drinks way too many times. And yet, Bad can't help but reach for salvation with the help of Jean, a journalist who discovers the real man behind the musician.

Crazy Heart is both written and directed by actor/filmmaker Scott Cooper, who wrote the script for For Sale by Owner and is making his directorial debut with this film. This was shot last year but hasn't shown at any film festivals. Fox Searchlight will be bringing Crazy Heart to limited theaters starting on December 11th.

    An ok trailer for what will be a great film.
  • xerxex
    I like it, granted I'm not a big fan of country music, but I'm a fan of Bridges.
  • Charlie
    What is the name of the song they play in the trailer?
  • jvj590
    why did you remove my post?????
  • jim
    looks like some ole' bullshit.
  • FancyMonocle
    Looks good, though, why does it subtly remind me of The Wrestler?
  • Scotty97
    #5-sounds like some ole' redneck who just wants more Larry the Cable guy movies.
  • Scotty97
    I would imagine the song is titled Crazy Heart, but according to a couple other sites the songs are written and performed by lengendary producer/singer/songwriter T Bone Burnett along with Stephen Bruton, Jeff Bridges and Colin Farrell.
  • Charlie... That song featured in the trailer is THE WEARY KIND... an Original song by T. Bone Burnett (who has written about 5 songs for the film).
  • Scotty97
    Just to add another reason to compare Bridges' character to Kris Kristofferson, Stephen Bruton(who co-wrote several songs on the soundtrack) was a long time collaborator and friend of Kristofferson's, until Bruton passed away earlier this year.
  • Quanah
    I'm sure Bridges performance will be brilliant.
  • It has promise, for sure. Funny that Colin Farrell's face was in only one shot that I noticed. Probably a good thing, cause he sinks almost everything he appears in...
  • rblitz7
    #6 I agree def a lot of similarities which is a good thing, I loved the wrestler. lets see middle aged man, no wife or close family, broke, just goin through the motions of his profession, looking for meaning in his life, etc.
  • Kris
    Who is actually singing the song in the trailer? I vaguely recognize the voice...
  • Charlie
    Er, Tender Mercies?
  • risk
    jeff bridges + robert duvall = win
  • xerxex
    Mark he was great in "In Bruges" it redeemed him.
  • Agree #15. Don't why people aren't mentioning that movie more (has anyone actually seen it on this site?). Cooper clearly knows it since he cast Duvall as Bridge's dad. Crazy Heart looks like Tender Mercies but with more of a feel good payoff.
  • Brad
    What #16 said... Jeff Bridges + Robert Duvall = win
  • beavis
    looks ok. but it seems too similar to "the wrestler". i'll probably end up watching this on dvd.
  • Greasy Tones
    Die Hard meets The Matrix sweet!
  • Golgo 13
    Colin Farrell?! Yeah, I thought that was him in the trailer. Totally unexpected, but I'm a fan of his and you can't go wrong with Jeff Bridges. Not a country music person, but I'll see it for those two aforementioned actors.
  • Name is Required
    oh great! at first the trailer won't play and now my previous comments were removed? what's the meaning of this! LOL as if my comments matters... movie is decent enough...
  • dave13
    i did get a Wrestler feel. The Wrestler, country music style. lol. still, looks really good despite the less than perfect cutting of the trailer.
  • dELVIS
    A thought for those curious about the song in the trailer. Says the music was done by Stephen Bruton & T-Bone Burnett. It isn't T-Bone singing, so maybe it's Bruton?
  • dELVIS
    After more research, I'm pretty confident in saying that the late Stephen Bruton's singing the song in the trailer. As for the title of it - I'm not sure yet.
  • F.C.
    wow. looks amazing, even though i despise country music. just give the man the damn oscar already1
  • Corran Horn
    David: I've seen Tender Mercies. Heck, when I first read this film's synopsis, it was the first thing I thought of. xerxex: In Bruges redeemed Farrell in my eyes too. I've also heard good things about his work in Dr Parnassus and Neil Jordan's Ondine. As long as he sticks to indie films like this, he should be fine.
  • indyjack86
    four time's nominated and never won! he is long overdue.... although i would love to see him win for true grit in two years time.
  • Film Fan
    I hated Colin Farrell until "In Bruges". Great performance, GREAT film!! Why wasn't Farrell's name mentioned at the end of this trailer? Anyway, this film looks good too.
  • This looks the bingo! I'm a little bit country, I'm a little bit Rock n Roll. I quite liked the look of Maggie Gyllenhaal in this, all the other folks looked great too.
  • Olo
    Seems to be Ryan Bingham singing
  • footenote
    I'd have to assume Duvall was cast here as a nod to his role in Tender Mercies. A beautiful movie in its own right. Voice in this trailer sounds like Ryan Bingham. Anyone else think so? RIP Horton Foote.
  • I always see 'the dude' when I watch anything with Bridges in it. This movie looks like it will be really good.
  • Kris
    Just found out it is in fact Ryan Bingham singing in the trailer.
  • Sgt. Pepper
    basically the wrestler with a guitar instead of a ram jam technique. looks good though.
  • dqniel
    Boring trailer, but I bet the movie itself will be good. Jeff Bridges is the man.
  • I just loooove watching HD trailers on a non HD screen. Missing a 3rd of the screen makes for such a rewarding viewing experience! That being said, looks like a slam dunk Best Actor nod for Jeff Bridges, a true workhorse of an actor. Should be a good'n. It does scream "The Wrestler", but that is by no means a bad thing.
  • G-men
    can someone post the name of the song being played on the trailer artist and song please
  • Lordofcinema
    And the Oscar goes to...!! FINALLY!!! If any who has not seen the film, Wild Bill...A true unseen gem with Jeff Bridges.
  • Kris
    Song in trailer is called "The Weary Kind." Written by Ryan Bingham and T Bone Burnett, and sung by Ryan Bingham.
  • Chris
    I had a chance to see this movie about a month ago for free. A friend and I were out to see another movie when we were approached by media promotions people who offered us a chance to screen this film and rate it afterward. We filled out several forms gathering demographic information and were let in to see this movie. It was awful. We walked out after the first 25 minutes. It was that bad.
  • Dgeet
  • Jerry T
    Thanks for the info on the song. He sounds a *lot* like Steve Earle.
  • pillowy_mounds
    mind if I do a J?
  • It might be ok... Jeff Bridges is great... but it looks like I've seen it before... "has-been guy gets one more chance." Right when I started thinking about "Tender Mercies" -- there's Robert Duvall with a cameo! More cliches, too: The wraparound is an interview with a wide-eyed girl who wants to learn his life story, at first he's reluctant, blah, blah, blah... anyway, maybe the film will overcome the genre cliches.
  • DP
    If any of you dumb dumbs are looking for the artist fo the song, it's Ryan Bingham. Ya big doofuss'
  • CP
    It is Ryan Bingham singing the song on the Trailer!!!
  • peggy
    i never was a big fan of jeff bridges but after I saw crazy heart i am in love with him. i hope he wins the academy award. my favorite movie was walk the line until i saw crazy heart. i been going to the movies since 1947 and i never saw a movie like this before. jeff is AWESOME. i never cared for country western until i saw jeff perform. i bought the cd sound track its great. i seen the movie for the fifth time and it gets better each time. i love jeff bridges. OH and colin farrell was a big surprise. i almost fell off my seat, i did spill my popcorn and didn't care. BIG FAN!!!!
  • #42 wow -- if what you say is true, then you just saved me about fifty bucks. so i thank you. but it does look good. and what i've seen and read -- up until your comment, looks good as well. i had planned on going to see this tonight, but now i think i shall move down my list to another pick. i do wonder though, why yours is the first, and only negative thing i have heard about this film. any idea? is this not a movie that you personally have no interest in? the music not your style? because if that is the issue, then i might give it a chance. everyone has their own idea of what makes for a good or bad movie. but an open mind is one thing that you must have if you are to 'critique' a film for a broad audience. so, for the masses, what do you say? is it really a bad movie? or is it just bad for you? thanks.

    Congrats on winning best song ? That's 3 in a row for Fox Searchlight in this category. Colin was visibly moved when he actually introduced fellow countryman Glen who sang and composed Falling Slowly and won two Oscars ago. Funny how it goes to see him singing the winning song two years later ? ? Does anyone have the clip of Colin actually singing this like we saw at The Oscars? ? PLEASE I can't find it anywhere.
    This film is the measure of a man, the many times you got up after falling down... Jeff Bridges is the real thing here.
