First Teaser Trailer for Aronofsky's 'The Whale' with Brendan Fraser
"People are amazing." A24 has debuted the first teaser trailer for the film The Whale, the latest feature directed by the Oscar-nominated filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, The Wrestler, Black Swan, Mother!). This premiered at the 2022 Venice Film Festival, where it won a number of awards. The film tells the story of an extremely obese man named Charlie, who always stays inside his own apartment. When his estranged teenage daughter shows up, he attempts to reconnect with her while also dealing with health problems and a missionary who keeps appearing at his doorstep. The film Brendan Fraser stars in one of the best performances of the year, with a terrific cast including Sadie Sink, Hong Chau, Ty Simpkins, and Samantha Morton. The film is one of my Top 10 films of the year already, an emotional and unforgettable story about empathy and honesty. I'm glad A24 will be releasing this film soon.
