Watch: Dark Official Trailer for 'The Good Doctor' with Orlando Bloom
"I never meant it to happen, it just got… out of control." Magnolia Pictures has unveiled the first official trailer for Lance Daly's The Good Doctor, an indie drama starring Orlando Bloom is a handsome, young doctor who falls for one of his patients. Riley Keough plays the patient, with Michael Peña as his friend, and Taraji P. Henson as a nurse. This starts all light and cheery, but gets very dark and almost sinister, rather quickly. You'll see what I mean! Not really a "good" doctor after all. Though by the end of this, you may feel like you've seen too much of the movie already, as I think I've figured it out. Give it a shot anyway.
Watch the first official trailer for Lance Daly's The Good Doctor, in high def from Apple:
Dr. Martin Blake (Bloom), who has spent his life looking for respect, meets an 18-year-old patient named Diane (Keough), suffering from a kidney infection. When her health starts improving, Martin fears losing her, and he begins tampering with her treatment, keeping Diane sick and in the hospital right next to him.
The Good Doctor is directed by up-and-coming Irish filmmaker Lance Daly, of the indies Kisses and Halo Effect previously. previously. The screenplay was written by John Enbom, of work on "Free Agents", "Party Down" and "Veronica Mars". This first premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year. Magnolia Pictures is bringing The Good Doctor to theaters starting August 31st this summer, plus VOD in late July. Curious?

Not the worst thing a doctors done, but twisted none the less.

What's the over/under on Michael Peña finally getting his own lead role some day instead of always playing the concerned friend?
