Steve Carell fights Nazis in new #WelcometoMarwen Trailer


Quote:
This holiday season, Academy Award winner Robert Zemeckis—the groundbreaking filmmaker behind Forrest Gump, Flight and Cast Away—directs Steve Carell in the most original movie of the year. Welcome to Marwen tells the miraculous true story of one broken man’s fight as he discovers how artistic imagination can restore the human spirit.

When a devastating attack shatters Mark Hogancamp (Carell) and wipes away all memories, no one expected recovery. Putting together pieces from his old and new life, Mark meticulously creates a wondrous town where he can heal and be heroic. As he builds an astonishing art installation—a testament to the most powerful women he knows—through his fantasy world, he draws strength to triumph in the real one.

In a bold, wondrous and timely film from this revolutionary pioneer of contemporary cinema, Welcome to Marwen shows that when your only weapon is your imagination…you’ll find courage in the most unexpected place.

The epic drama is produced by Oscar-winning producer Steve Starkey (Forrest Gump, Flight), Jack Rapke (Cast Away, Flight), and Cherylanne Martin (The Pacific, Flight) of Zemeckis’ Universal-based ImageMovers banner produce alongside the director. It is executive produced by Jackie Levine, as well as Jeff Malmberg, who directed the riveting 2010 documentary that inspired the film.

A clever concept, but it sure looks like Hollywood is going to be banging their one musical note ideologically again, lol. So predictable.

I can’t tell if this is going to be one of those movies like Walter Mitty where the trailer conveys a tone that the film can’t match.

Studios are very good st marketing that “ celebration of life”, “love of humanity” vibe and then not having a script that can pull that off in 2 hours like a trailer can.

It's all based on Marwencol, a documentary that covered the actual person Steve Carell's character is based on. Obviously the movie won't be as accurate to the events as the documentary and book were...but this is about an actual person and the stuff he actually did.

It worked well enough for the documentary, if nothing else.

They can base it on anything they want, the reality is that Hollywood has its own ideological purposes with its work, as evidenced by the complete annihilation of Christian content from A Wrinkle in Time, which became a vehicle for progressive messaging rather than an actual retelling of a Christian story...and was a serious financial flop as well.

Folks who enjoy actual ENTERTAINMENT when they pay to be entertained are increasingly facing the constant, perpetual, universal desire of progressives to turn every single fucking piece of entertainment into a didactic sermon. The new fundamentalists love their virtue signaling.

Right...but, they're essentially following the story of this man's life while tweaking it to make for a better film experience. The script and story were already there, essentially.

I think their biggest challenge will be in how to market the film. Drama? Action? Progressive agenda? some how I am sure they will associate trump and/or conservatives to the white supremacists in the movie. Kids? Adults?

Looks interesting; hopefully worth a buy-n-rip in 4K ('cause we can do that now).

Well we know who they will blame when it inevitably flops.

Yea those fucking liberal snowflakes, cant even watch a movie trailer without projecting their insecurities via idiotic predictions of its future success or failure and the ensuing blame.

I am not super excited about the movie. The CGI looks very uncanny valley cringeworthy like the last time Zemeckis did something similar in The Polar Express. I'm surprised the tech hasn't come further.

Steve Carell does have the ability to infuses charm into the character though so that may be a saving grace.

I did a little research on the events, the person, and the documentary. I think they are going to have to tone it down and take a way different approach which isn't going to please the progressives at all. Nope, this movie is going to be very sanitized. I suspect all the worst parts of his past which include the nasty relationships, the alcoholism, and the cross-dressing will be scrubbed away with maybe a couple lines in some montage or something. It wouldn't surprise me to see Carell show up in at least one scene wearing pantyhose and heels though, just as an homage to the real life person.

However they portray the bad guys as "Nazis" I hope is they don't go the cheap way and make it political. Hopefully, they are actually Nazis (which is implied in the trailer) or just a bunch of what everyone with any sense and decency, regardless of politics, can agree are unredeemable fucktards.

Unlike the real events this one clearly resolves itself with a climax where Mark gets his day in court to stand up to the bad guys and it goes a long way to healing him, so there will be tears and a happy ending.

This is the only logical response.

Any other one is retarded.

You people have complete trash standards. Id rather watch Ninja Turtles from the 80s for the 100th time than this shit.
