Movie Trailer Monday: The Lady
Instead of featuring a music video this week, I decided to feature a trailer to a film that should be coming out in the next couple of weeks. The U.S. release date has been changed a few times, which is frustrating for me because this is one of the most highly anticipated films for me in the past few years. The film, The Lady, is a biopic about Burmese Dissident and Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi. This is the second trailer, which is slightly different from the first trailer and a lot different from the teaser trailer. I cannot wait to see this film. Michelle Yeoh is one of my favourite actresses and she is also one of the most beautiful Asian women I've ever seen (second only to Aung San Suu Kyi, in my opinion).
Aung San Suu Kyi has been in the news a lot lately. And just this weekend, she won a huge landslide victory that hopefully the military junta will honour this time (in the 1990 election, when her political party, the National League for Democracy won a landslide victory, they did not honour the results and arrested her and other leaders in the party, which had the unintended consequence of making her a favourite to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991). If she is allowed to take office and eventually become Prime Minister, this would be a huge step forward for Burma (or Myanmar). I'm truly excited. And whoever owns the distribution rights for The Lady, NOW is when you want to release this movie. Don't wait any more!! Capitalize on the news and release it in theaters this Friday. I really want to see this movie!!
