Trailer For Winnie, a Mandela Biopic Starring Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard

Winnie Trailer: Jennifer Hudson Tries For Her Next Oscar

Jennifer Hudson has gotten more than her 15 minutes' worth out of American Idol. First she earned an Oscar for Dreamgirls, and now in the upcoming Winnie, she takes on the high-profile role of wife (now ex-wife) to Nelson Mandela (Terrence Howard), an activist who kept up her revered husband's anti-apartheid work even during his incarceration. The film portrays the woman's life, from childhood to her marriage to Mandela to the events that took place post his arrest.

This should be a sweeping, epic drama ripe for award season nods: a biopic with romance, a country's turmoil, and a strong central heroine. So why does it scream made-for-TV movie? Perhaps it's the bad age makeup, but this trailer just doesn't seem to live up to the story's potential. Give it a look when you

Excuse me! bad makeup my ass. If thats all you got saying the movie does not live up to its potential. That is a bunch of BS. I say the clip is every bit of the story line and more. The clip shows that the story is very deep and very serious. Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard went in very hard as young Hollywood established stars to highlight this movie. They even have the accent down packed. Give this movie the credit it has earned and deserves. Stop trying to down grade every black movie that is done by A-list stars. It may not win an Oscar in your eyes. Well, I beg the difference. Thanks, but no thanks.
