Release Date: TBA 2013
Thoughts: Though it smacks of one of those feel-good movies from the 80’s that we wind up revisiting with abject horror twenty years later; it’s hard to deny that this true life story about a UK man that wowed audiences on Britain’s Got Talent doesn’t look enormously appealing. That’s partly due to its lead actor, Tony winner James Corden (who will be traveling Into the Woods in 2014) who clearly has the stuff to make audiences stand up and cheer. Director David Frankel (Marley & Me) knows a thing or two about sleeper hits after directing The Devil Wears Prada and the film has a certain pedigree behind it that could bode well for good word of mouth. I’m leaning toward putting this into the category of Must See this holiday season only because I think my Grinch-y heart would be more the better for it.
