Now that we've finally seen more than that same still image and a teaser, A24 has unveiled a full trailer for The Whale. Unsurprisingly, they're focusing on what everyone's here to see: Brendan Fraser's incredible performance.
Darren Aronofsky's film, based on a play by Samuel D. Hunter, has gotten mixed reviews overall. But as part of the narrative of Fraser's much-deserved comeback, it's been unanimously praised. The one-time star of George of the Jungle wore hundreds of pounds of prosthetics to play the obese, grieving man at the center of the story. He's got a deep well of empathy and humanity that the movie doesn't always possess. With standing ovations at film festivals and numerous critics awards, this feel-bad movie has become a feel-good story.
The Whale is now playing in select theaters. It expands nationwide on December 21.
