I’ve always thought Hilary Swank was kind of cute (she was actually hot in The Black Dahlia), but I can’t believe how incredibly ugly she looks in this movie. I mean, she looks gross.
Seabiscuit + Out of Africa = Amelia
Hillary Swank has the worst teeth of any movie star out there.
Is it so hard to get good caps?
I think it will probably be good, but not great. It will be Best Picture nominee #7 (of 10) and Ms. Swank will likely get a Best Actress nomination (unless, the movie stinks of course).
The role Swank was born to play, and the movie that America was created to ignore. I think in the end, her story to the masses is one of frustrating failure. a small percentage will always elevate her status, much like they do with Alexander Supertramp, but that percentage translates to small box office.
People who say vile things about women tend to be pretty vile themselves,
I would say that the trailer looks very, very good indeed. I like the period design, the period accents; I like it, period,
MilkMan, first of all, glad to be in your company in having thought that, and second I think hopefully they just went overboard giving her that washed out pasty Earhart look.
Piece of shit.
My verdict is that I don’t watch trailers anymore. They give too much away and show all the cool shots. I highly recommend this approach. Trailers are fun to watch but I’m really glad I started doing this.
Girlpower porn. I’m in, even though Swank annoys me.
Hilary Swank appears in two kinds of films, Oscar Winners and Skull Crushing Pieces of Dogshit
I’m going to pass on this one.
When will this mania for nonstop fades end?
The smash cut to “A Mira Nair” film is kinda laughable.
As if the average audience member is going to say, “I was skeptical at first, but now that I see it is a Mira Nair film I am so in!”
The “A Mira Nair Film” got me over being annoyed at Swank, actually.
Is it just me, or does her accent seem to change throughout this trailer?
Any trailer that uses both John Murphy’s music from “Sunshine” and Trajan Pro font is a-okay in my book. But this movie looks too generic to be good.
Is it wrong of me to say Hillary looks more mannish in this than she did in “Boys Don’t Cry”? OK, it’s definitely wrong, but I’m just saying. This looks absolutely perfunctory – plucky protagonist, mentor who believed in them, doubting mate…the whole nine yards. Still, it certainly could sneak into the Top 10 since it has that sheen of prestige to it, and people will sympathize since she did actually crash and die. I just think I may be over biopics is all, so I don’t see myself partaking.
She’s no Amy Adams.
Christ, Ewan McGregor has been in a neverending parade of shite these past few years. I watched Miss Potter, foolishly, and it was genuinely one of the worst studio films I’ve seen. Absolute gash, and he blatantly looked like he couldn’t be arsed. What happened? He was ace as Renton. I think he doesn’t give a shit anymore and just takes easy cash so he can bike around the place with his moon-faced, sponging buddy, Charley Boorman.
It looks 100% inauthentic to me. I can almost guarantee that the lines “Q: why do you want to fly, A: I want to be free” were never spoken.
She looks like Matt Damon.
Swank is there for the ”look” of the person….
if the script sparkles and other production values
come through….then we have a winner…..
the 20′s and 30′s shown as America’s important years.
Will see this for the planes if nothing else.
I still like Hillary Swank, and I’m a big fan of Mira Nair (PEREZ FAMILY and KAMA SUTRA notwithstanding). However, any film where Richard Gere isn’t playing an asshole or a villain automatically gets a pass from me, so I have mixed feelings about this. And yes, the trailer looks generic, but yes, Amelia Earhart does deserve a film.
Little surprised to see them cutting the trailer in the “higher-brow action movie” style, honestly…
Hilary Swank as actually smoking hot in “The Reaping”. Here she looks a WNBA player.
Put a leg-humping robot in it and you have a sexy “Stand and Deliver”
Imogen is correct. There are lots of Hwd actresses who are extremely “not attractive”, and I think about Meryl Streep and Julianne Moore and others, but they can act their arses off. We don’t need blond blue eyed, straight teeth Kathryn Heigl to know that women who are not blond-blue eyed-straight teeth can act. There are lots of black women who are “unattractive” who can act, Viola Davis being one of them.
In real life, if you see them up close, they are really pretty in person. The film makes them look worse than they are — I know I have met some of them and been astounded at how well they looked.
I love Hillary Swank. She can act. Bad teeth and all.
Average movie-goer 1: Whoa! I didn’t know they were planning a sequel to Amelie!
Average movie-goer 2: Wait, I thought it was a spin-off of that Leo plane movie I netflixed a while back.
Average movie-goer 3: That dude from Pretty Woman sucks in everything he’s in; and everyone’s too old; why couldn’t that chick from that vampire movie be the star?
I like Hilary Swank a lot, so I’ll see this. She was very good in the better-than-expected “Freedom Writers”.

I don’t understand why they had to mention in the trailer, in big red letters, that she was a lover, as if that was an achievement. Everybody is a lover or can be a lover. It’s not as impressive as being, say, an explorer, or a rebel, or an icon.
