Here’s what I know: Nobody needs career revitalization more than Harrison Ford, Rachel McAdams, Jeff Goldblum and Diane Keaton. The irony is they are all terrific screen presences – even terrific actors, if I dare go that far – but the truth is they haven’t had a hit in quite some time. And no, Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull does not count as a hit for Harrison Ford and Sherlock Holmes does not count as a win for McAdams. Rationalize it all you want, but those movies were subpar. As for Goldblum and Keaton, they haven’t been relevant or noticed since 1997 and 2003 respectively.
Now we have this trailer for Morning Glory, due in theaters on November 12, and it looks 100 percent charming. Harrison Ford is outside is element of drama and action and looks to be having a good time, and Keaton looks like she was born to actually co-host a morning show. And then of course we have McAdams who delivers the girl-next-door beauty and charm, but without the triteness and used-car feeling that comes with other actresses (yes, Katherine Heigl, I’m pointing my finger at you).
Morning Glory is directed by Roger Michell, best known for his 1999 dramedy, Notting Hill, but who is also the man behind the lovely 2006 Peter O’ Toole film, Venus. He also directed Daniel Craig in the 2003 movie The Mother, but I’d rather not remember the creepy love scenes, so I’ll leave you with the trailer for Morning Glory and would love your opinions.
