Tommy Lee Jones & Meryl Streep in First Trailer for 'Hope Springs'
"I want a real marriage again." Marriage is tough, and sometimes keeping the spark alive takes some real effort. That's why Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep decide to get some intensive couples counseling from Steve Carell. You would think that marriage counseling from Carell would be a little funnier, but the film seems to take the more serious route, and there aren't many laughs to be had in the first trailer for Hope Springs. It looks like this is going to be a film for the older, married crowd, perhaps with some wisdom for the young lovers looking to get hitched sooner or later. It might be pretty good. Watch below!
Here's the first trailer for David Frankel's Hope Springs, originally from Moviefone:
Kay (Meryl Streep) and Arnold (Tommy Lee Jones) are a devoted couple, but decades of marriage have left Kay wanting to spice things up and reconnect with her husband. When she hears of a renowned couple’s specialist (Steve Carell) in the small town of Great Hope Springs, she attempts to persuade her skeptical husband, a steadfast man of routine, to get on a plane for a week of marriage therapy. David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada) directs Hope Springs from a script by Vanessa Taylor ("Game of Thrones" and "Everwood") and Columbia Pictures send the film to theaters everywhere on August 10th this year. Good?

I'd have a threesome with Mimi Rogers. Have you seen her massive tits? Though now her massive tits are starting to sag and when naked she looks like a wax figure of herself melting in the sun, with her tits sliding down her body, and wrinkling. But I'd still do her.

Meryl Streep is over, as if she just got that academy award, the academy awards are kind of weightless now too

I find this movie to be deeply, deeply disturbing and if I watch it I'll need to cut my eyes and bleed them out. God bless us all...Everyone one.

Plot Sound original but not classic but I think basic question is who can take acting from mreyl Streep, she is rare diamond and worst movie with her presence become classic I think directors must use her power before she retired. Why Martin Scorsese or spilberg or other great director don't choose her in their movies? What a shame and pity

Oh No...I dont think I'm prepared to see Tommy Lee Jones go down the movies-for-older-people-and-widely-perceived-as-lame road. Drink some RedDog beer and stay young, Tommy!

i'm looking forward to this, if only because Hollywood rarely makes movies like this anymore: Movies about growing older, geared towards older audiences. I assume most of us here on the site are in our late teens to 30's, and a large majority of the movies being made are geared towards our age group. It leads to ageism in Hollywood and a serious lack of diversity. A good article about this related to Lawrence Kasdan's 'Darling Companion' was posted on Deadline Hollywood. So yeah, I couldn't agree less with 'Voice of Reason.' Sounds like someone who wants to watch a younger, mo-cap version of Tommy Lee Jones rather than seeing a great actor age, change, and make movies for people like him. I'm 24 btw.

Nah, I hear what youre saying, Tommy in 'No Country For old Men,' 'MiB' and even 'Company Men' or 'Captain America'...great roles! Still aging and kicking it, but this just seems like a gateway movie to how great actors fizzle out, which I fear for such an awesome actor, like Tommy. Thats like knowing how awesome Jack Nicholsons career is and watching him do shlock like "The Bucket List' in his later years.

Two great actors. Tommy Lee Jones is often funny, unbeknownst even to him, the way he barks orders and his no-nonsense with acting. Check him out in "The Good Old Boys" with Sissy Spacek. And Meryl, who can do anything. Looking forward to seeing these two, but would prefer both of them in something suspenseful.

We have been married 32 years and we are going with two other couples who have been married almost as long. This should be a blast! WE all love a good laugh! Maybe that is why we have all been married this long.
