Phil Spector

Though we're primarily concerned with films in theaters, we're happy to cover a few worthy films that debut on TV (mostly on the cable channel HBO), especially after Game Change, starring Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin (a performance we raved about). Such is the case with Phil Spector, another HBO film starring Al Pacino (who also starred in the cable network's acclaimed film You Don't Know Jack) as the titular legendary music producer who came to be on trial for murder. David Mamet (Glengarry Glen Ross) writes and directs the film which also stars Helen Mirren, and now the first full trailer is here. Watch it below!

Here's the first full-length trailer for David Mamet's Phil Spector, directly from HBO:

Written and directed by David Mamet, Phil Spector is his exploration of the client-attorney relationship between legendary music producer Phil Spector (Al Pacino) and defense attorney Linda Kenney Baden (Helen Mirren), who represented Spector during his first trial for murder. The film also features Rebecca Pidgeon, Jeffrey Tambor and Chiwetel Ejiofor in supporting roles and premieres on HBO on March 24th.

Yeah, but produced by David Mamet. A definite watch.

Because they use Spector's music in the trailer, it's a pro-Phil production. If you see what happened-that hasn't sold out to either Phil or Lana's people-that will get both sides angry. Check out: http://www.philspectorincident.com Who needs Mamet or Pacino to give you the truth!

I love Dame Helen, but she has a terrible fake American accent in this.

I thought he was guilty, so i don't see why the feel the need to defend him in a movie, you'd think the actors would know better

Why do you assume the movie is defending him? It's just a chronicle of the drama that unfolded.

Pacino needs to retire. Also, he needs to stop shouting so much.
