The Professor and the Madman Trailer

"The language is developing faster than our progress." Vertical Entertainment has debuted another new official trailer for Farhad Safinia's film The Professor and the Madman, which will actually be getting a release in theaters this May. In the film, Mel Gibson stars as James Murray, a professor at Oxford who is hired to work on compiling the very first edition of the Oxford English Dictionary. During the course of his fastidious work, he receives over 10,000 entries from a patient and convincted murderer at the Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum, a man known as Dr. William Chester Minor, played by Sean Penn. The cast also includes Steve Coogan, Eddie Marsan, Natalie Dormer, Jennifer Ehle, Ioan Gruffudd, Jeremy Irvine, Aidan McArdle, Brendan Patricks, and Adam Fergus. Not that sure this will be worth seeing.

Here's the second official trailer for Farhad Safinia's The Professor and the Madman, from YouTube:

Difficult to come to any kind of decision based on this trailer. There certainly is a lot of top notch talent involved, but I don't know what to think of the story. I'm for sure more interested in this than any Spider Man or X Men or Avengers thing as it looks authentic and worthwhile. I'll have to read more about it before I decide whether to bother with it. If it comes right away to cable I'll watch it for sure.

I think that Sean Penn is secretly very happy for getting the part of the Madman over Gibson ...
