More vids were uploaded by Sony Pictures on the official “Hope Springs” website. Link

and some on Youtube:

The first trailer of the sex dramedy “Hope Springs” features Meryl Streep as Kay Soames, playing the role of an unhappy wife who  coerces her husband Arnold – Tommy Lee Jones, to a marriage counseling with Dr. Bernie Feld (Steve Carrell). The couple who has been married for more than 30 years lost the spark in their relationship along the way. In order to get it back, Kay decides to attend them a week-long retreat led by a renowned therapist. (Below you can see the trailer #1)

Directed by David Frankel (“The Devil Wears Prada“), the Sony film looks to be a sentimental romance with a dash of awkward sex comedy. Of course, with Streep starring, it’s probably worth seeing just to watch her work, her movie magic. The script is written by the “Game of Thrones” scribe Vanessa TaylorHere you can see the whole cast & crew. The MSN page for the movie.

On July 27 AARP published the second trailer of the movie, which you can see here. [Post(It wasn’t published on YT yet)

On July 11 Sony Pictures published the first TV spot. It is pretty short, only 33 seconds. To promote next month’s release of “Hope Springs”, offering lots of new scenes from the movie. You can check out it below:

Also the second TV spot was published, again 33 seconds:

On July 26 were published 2 new spots, which you can see below:

The day after Meryl won the Oscar, pundits are already filling out their list of possible contenders for Best Actress. Needless to say, Meryl made it through most of the lists. Some people have seen “Hope Springs” for Meryl a la Something’s Gotta Give for Diane Keaton. Whether or not Meryl will really end up in Hollywood and Highland as a nominee for Best Actress and not a presenter for Best Actor, who knows. At this point, it is safe to say that this will be Meryl’s 8th Comedy Golden Globe nomination (the other seven are “She-Devil”, “Postcards from the Edge”, “Death Becomes Her”, “The Devil Wears Prada”, “Mamma Mia”, “Julie&Julia” and “It’s Complicated”) Originally attached to the project were Jeff Bridges and Meryl’s usual collaborator Mike Nichols. However, when Bridges backed out, Nichols followed suit. But the casting spotlight was not on Meryl, nor whoever would play Arnold, but on the therapist. He is the pivotal character in the movie. The announcement of Carell as Dr. Bernie Feld, was met initial skepticism. Anyway many are impressed with his performance judging by the trailer.

On Thursday in Las Vegas, Sony presented some footage from the upcoming dramedy as a part of its presentation at CinemaCon. Sony president of worldwide distribution Rory Bruer also presented footage from “Total Recall, The Amazing Spider-ManI, Men in Black 3” and James Bond entry “SkyfallA few months ago, the first draft of the script was leaked in the internet which I uploaded here. Before a week was published another script, a new one, with obvious differences and changes than the first. [link]

The film opened at 2,361 theaters and it scored a per-theater average of $959.00, the second highest for any film on August 8, eclipsed by another Streep release, “To the Arctic”.
