Elizabeth Banks looks hilarious here, great to see she is exploring more lead roles. The trailer is funny, we just have to hope that it didn’t consume all the good material.

Status: After a bizarre title controversy and a sugar-coated trailer it was hard to see “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” as an awards contender. But after the mostly-positive reviews, the strong box-office, and backing from The Weinstein Company it is hard not to see some strong award potential.
