"SON OF SAUL" HAS A TRAILER
Perhaps the best film that played TFF #$2. Laszlo Nemes "Son of Saul" is considered by most Oscar watches to be the favorite for a Best Foreign Language statue next February. The inventive Holocaust drama has finally gotten a trailer out. You can check it out in this post from The Playlist:
Fox Searchlight announced yesterday that Emma Stone has re-entered the casting for "Battle of the Sexes" a dramatization of the televised 1073 tennis match between Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King. Stone would be acting with Steve Carell as Riggs.
I've had this potential film on my Telluride radar for months. Now, perhaps it will actually take off and be a TFF consideration for #43 or #44.
Take a look at the story from Variety:
