Worth Watching - Aug 2: Peter Morgan's Damned United Trailer
Sony Pictures Classics recently debuted the official trailer for The Damned United, which stars Michael Sheen as Brian Clough and a host of other very talented British actors, including Colm Meaney, Stephen Graham, Timothy Spall, and Jim Broadbent. The film is a look at Brian Clough's 44-day reign as the coach of the Leeds United soccer team. If you're not from England, you may not know that much about the story, but this actually looks quite fascinating, probably thanks to the screenplay by Peter Morgan, who you may know best as the writer of The Queen and Frost/Nixon. Anyway, I highly suggest you check out this trailer below.

The Damned United is directed by British filmmaker Tom Hooper, of Red Dust, Longford, and multiple episodes of HBO's "John Adams" previously. The screenplay was written by Oscar nominated writer Peter Morgan, of The Last King of Scotland, The Queen, Longford, The Other Boleyn Girl, and Frost/Nixon previously. This is also based off of David Peace's novel of the same name about coach Brian Clough. Sony Pictures Classics is bringing The Damned United to limited theaters starting on September 25th this fall.
