TRAILER: "Lee Daniels' The Butler"

What was once called simply The Butler has had its name changed due to a legal dispute from WB, claiming the title from a silent film they had released in 1916. The Weinsteins fought this of course, and reached a compromise to put the director's name in front of the title. So, we now have Lee Daniels' The Butler, based on the memoir by Eugene Allen, who served as a White House butler for eight presidencies during the 20th century. The film comes out Aug 16th.
