TRAILER: "Selma"

One of the last films coming out this year to debut a trailer, here's a look at Selma, the MLK biopic about the famous march. This was directed by arthouse filmmaker Ava Duvernay and is coming out in limited release on Christmas Day. It had been labeled a potential Oscar contender, but obviously we won't know how good it is until it screens for an audience, which it still hasn't done yet. The trailer makes it look pretty good, except for that music in the background in the last part (seems like desperate attempt to make history feel modern, which is a constant thing they do in trailers like this and it's really annoying). David Oyelewo looks pretty good as MLK, although it doesn't appear to be much of an imitation. Maybe that's a good thing though.
