Watch: First Official Trailer for Madonna's New Romantic Drama 'W.E.'
"I have never known one person so utterly possessed by another as he was by her." The official trailer has finally been unveiled via Moviefone for Madonna's W.E., the second feature film she's directed, a romantic drama intertwining two love stories in two different time periods, one of them being the "most infamous scandal of the 20th century." The drama stars Abbie Cornish, Richard Coyle, James D'Arcy, Oscar Isaac, Annabelle Wallis and Andrea Riseborough. It received dismal reviews at its Venice premiere and the trailer holds up looking as dismal as it sounds. But it might whisk away a few of you, so take a look.
Watch the first official trailer for Madonna's second film W.E., embedded via Moviefone:
A two-tiered romantic drama that focuses on the affair between King Edward VIII and American divorcée Wallis Simpson, and a contemporary romance between a married woman and a Russian security guard.
W.E. is both written and directed by legendary actress/musician-turned-filmmaker Madonna, who directed the comedy Filth and Wisdom previously. The script is credited to Madonna & Alek Keshishian (Love and Other Disasters). This premiered at the Venice & Toronto International Film Festivals earlier this fall. The film was produced by Semtex Films and will be distributed by The Weinstein Company. Madonna's W.E. arrives in limited theaters starting December 9th in NY and LA only, expanding next February.
