Kidman’s Lucille Ball Stays Relatively Hidden in “Being the Ricardos” Teaser

There isn’t enough said about Lucille Ball.

Easily one of the most impactful women to ever enter Hollywood, the funny redhead had much more to say than audiences saw on their television sets.

A film about her life is long overdue. Thanks to Aaron Sorkin that is about to change.

Amazon Prime just released a teaser for the forthcoming Being the Ricardos. Though we don’t see Nicole Kidman’s face until the final few seconds, the voiceover tells the story. Strong-willed and independent, we get a glimpse at the power Lucy had when she entered the room. And if nothing else, we learn that she has a story to tell.

As with any Sorkin project, the dialogue will be excellent. However, I can’t imagine a situation where Lucy doesn’t own the screen.

Co-starring Javier Bardem, J.K. Simmons, Nina Arianda, Alia Shawkat, and Tony Hale, Being the Ricardos hits theaters December 10 before debuting on Prime Video December 21.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
