Catch the Kentucky Derby fever with the Secretariat trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The marketing genius of Hollywood never seems to amaze me. On ESPN right now, I see something about the upcoming Kentucky Derby every five minutes. So while the Derby monopolizes sports news, it’s the perfect time to release the trailer for SECRETARIAT. Secretariat, in case you don’t know, is considered by many to be the greatest racing horse in history and by far the most famous Triple Crown winner (not that there’s many to choose from). The film stars Diane Lane, John Malkovich, Dylan Walsh, Kevin Connolly, James Cromwell and Scott Glenn. Randall Wallace will be directing.
I was a big fan of SEABISCUIT and this has a little bit of that kind of feel to it. Horse movies are usually pretty decent and with the cast and team they have working on this, there’s no reason to believe it won’t be in the running (no pun intended) for Oscar glory.
