Trailer for AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY Starring Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, and Benedict Cumberbatch


We have a new trailer for the John Wells (The Company Men) adaptation of Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer Prize and Tony-winning play August: Osage County below, and it looks like Meryl Streep can act really well, who knew?  I’ve heard the movie is pretty great coming out of its Toronto International Film Festival premiere with the performances being award worthy.  It’s apparently very dark and funny too; the trailer doesn’t tell us that really if you ask me.

The story involves women of a family whose lives have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them.  The film stars an fantastic cast that includes Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Margot Martindale, Chris Cooper, Dermot Mulroney, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliette Lewis, Abigail Breslin, and Sam Shepard.

August: Osage County opens on November 8th, watch the trailer below:
