hillbilly elegy trailer

In the fallout of the 2016 election, J. D. Vance’s memoir Hillbilly Elegy became a nationwide hit, as media pundits sought to understood President Trump’s victory and influence over the rust belt states. The notion of the “Real America” became a hot-button topic, and one that Vance’s memoir supposedly captured in all of its depictions of economic anxiety and white working class poverty. Which means it was ripe for a sentimental adaptation by Ron Howard, with none other than Oscar nominees Glenn Close and Amy Adams chewing the scenery and donning bad wigs and old-age make-up to earn their long-awaited trophies. Watch the Hillbilly Elegy trailer below.

The Woman in the Window Delayed

Disney is still sifting through the movies they acquired in the purchase of 20th Century Fox. While some projects, like Wes Ball’s adaptation of the fantasy adventure The Mouse Guard, have been set aside by the House of Mouse, others are in the midst of moving towards a release. However, one of those projects need to be retooled a bit before it’s ready for audiences.

The Woman in the Window is an adaptation of A.J. Finn’s best-selling novel of the same name that Fox 2000 had been working on before Disney bought Fox. The film is an adult thriller directed by Joe Wright (Atonement) and starring Amy Adams that had been positioned as a possible awards contender with a release set for this fall. But apparently early test screenings confused audiences too much, and now the movie will undergo reshoots to make the central mystery easier to understand. But that means Fox/Disney have opted to delay The Woman in the Window until 2020. Read More »

Amy Adams is set to star in Ron Howard’s Hillbilly Elegy, a film penned by The Shape of Water scribe Vanessa Taylor that was picked up by Netflix.
