First Trailer for the Brian Wilson biopic ‘Love & Mercy’ drops


75Now that we’re actually into the next awards season (even though many people don’t want to even pretend that that’s the case…but it is, especially since more and more early year releases are scoring with Oscar), it makes perfect sense that the First Trailer has dropped for the Brian Wilson biopic Love & Mercy. Purported to feature one of the best performances to date from both John Cusack as well as Paul Dano (both of whom play Beach Boy Wilson at different stages in his life), at least going by the strong buzz out of the most recent Toronto Film Festival, this movie is high up on my Most Anticipated of 2015 list. I’d love to see both Cusack and Dano catch on with Academy voters, but we’re a long way off from worrying about category placement or anything like that. For now, take a look at the film from Bill Pohlad, which also features Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti in the cast, among others. You can see the Trailer below, which doesn’t show us too much, and stay tuned for more on this one. Love & Mercy hits theaters on June 5th, so this is just the start in the buzz building for the flick. More on this one when we have it closer to the start of the summer…

Here’s the Trailer:
