The trailer for Lee Daniels’ The Butler


The trailer for Lee Daniels’ “The Butler”, an ensemble drama about a butler that spends most of his life working for the various important types that come in and out of the White House, is online. The movie features a huge bevy of names including Oprah Winfrey, Forest Whitaker, Alex Pettyfer, John Cusack, Alan Rickman, Jane Fonda, Minka Kelly, Liev Schreiber, Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding Jr, Vanessa Redgrave, Melissa Leo, Lenny Kravitz, David Oyelowo and Mariah Carey – phew!
The film looks good! Good to see Forest Whitaker back in something decent too – was beginning to wonder whether he’d soul his soul to the direct-to-video bandits indefinitely!
