Trailer Blazer: 'The Other Boleyn Girl'

Posted on

Is it just me — and I’m more than willing to concede this fact — or is Eric Bana totally not convincing as the King of England? Furry but slight, that’s the vibe I get. (Okay, it’s probably just me, still burned from The Hulk.)

   

                                           

You know, this doesn’t look bad — all lush and period-y — but there’s a lack of oomph. This is another case of a trailer that gives me a little too much plot (don’t need to know, at this point, about male heirs and executions) and not enough tone. Why not sell me on the rivalry of the Boleyn sisters — the love torn asunder by power? You know what I want? Dangerous Liaisons. But, hey, I’ll settle for Scarlett Johansson writhing in passion.
