If you were at London’d Pride over the weekend, you may have seen it. Today Pathe UK has released the second Trailer for Judy starring Renée Zellweger as the iconic Hollywood legend.
We find ourselves in the London, swinging sixties, 30 years after The Wizard Of Oz.Judy Garland is in town to perform a run of sell out shows. Battling to win audiences over whilst battling management and battling depression.
Despite been that icon, will this movie give the star justice on her final years? Or is this Oscar bait film that may push Zellwegger into Oscar limelight? Best way to judge is not on the trailers but when the film arrives in cinemas…
Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform in a sell-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in THE WIZARD OF OZ, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians, and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of romance seem undimmed as she embarks on a courtship with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. And yet Judy is fragile. After working for 45 of her 47 years, she is exhausted; haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood; and gripped by a desire to be back home with her kids. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer”.
Judy also stars Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock, Rufus Sewell, and Michael Gambon. The film is set for a UK nationwide theatrical release on 4th October 2019.
