Joan Allen Loves a Killer in Stephen King's 'A Good Marriage' Trailer
Though author Stephen King may not be at the top of his game lately, that hasn't stopped him from being a prominent force in pop culture on film and television. Every year there's a new adaptation of one of his books or short stories, and this year is no different. But this time, King actually wrote the screenplay for A Good Marriage, a pretty conventional thriller starring Joan Allen and Anthony LaPaglia. The film follows a happy couple whose seemingly perfect life is thrown into upheaval when Darcy (Allen) discovers that her husband may actually secretly be a serial killer. Seems pretty bland and generic to me. Watch it?
Here's the first official trailer for Peter Askin's A Good Marriage, originally from Apple:
When her husband (Anthony LaPaglia of "Without a Trace") of more than twenty years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson (Joan Allen of The Bourne Ultimatum) looks for batteries in the garage. Instead she discovers the stranger inside her husband. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends A Good Marriage. Kristen Connolly and Stephen Lang also star in the film written by Master of Suspense Stephen King (The Shining) and directed by Peter Askin (Trumbo, Company Man). Screen Media Films releases the thriller on iTunes and in theaters on October 3rd. Well?
I think it looks good.

I would like to be surprised by this one. However, it does look terribly generic. Something to look for as a dvd rental, but only for the actors. Love Joan Allen.

Hmmm normally something with King's name on it makes me want to gag but this looks interesting.

I read the short story and have been intrigued by it ever since. I often find myself retelling the story, and asking what would you do at the moment you realize your husband is a serial killer? I'm so excited about this movie, and am definately looking forward to seeing it!
