Broadsheet Trailer Park: Spotlight

at

Spotlight

What you may need to know:

1. A team of Boston Globe journalists investigate the cover-up of widespread sexual abuse by the Catholic Church. True story, yo.

2. That’s a mighty impressive cast. You’ve got Batman, the Hulk, Sabretooth, Dr. Manhattan and Iron Man’s dad. It’s getting hard to find an actor who hasn’t been in a comic book movie.

3. …Or a Catholic priest who hasn’t [TEXT REDACTED]

4. Here’s hoping that post-Birdman Michael Keaton will never have to take another Robocop (2014), Need for Speed (2014), or Herbie Fully Loaded (2005).

5. “And the Oscar for best hairpiece in a supporting role goes to… Stanley Tucci.”

6. Broadsheet prognosis: Hot under the dog collar.

Release Date:
November 6.

    Thingy there with the grey hair from mad men is one of the better things from the new Wet Hot American Summer show. He’s one of the better things in most stuff he does.

    Can’t tell if this looks good or not. Haven’t seen a trailer like that since the nineties.

      Remember this story. it’s quite old at this stage. Looks very good – but then again all trailers do. Powerful stuff

        His name is Jon Slattery I think. Loved him in mad men and he’s great in wet hot…

        Actually he gives me the antsy pants

    I find it hard to believe that priests and bishops would cover up child abuse. That’s crazy talk.

    Good. This could turn out to be a very important movie. Sometimes people need to see the emotion.

    It would be good if more people saw this. I can’t believe anyone has anything to do with the RCC after these events.
