HBO Movie Phil Spector Gets A Dark New Teaser
More teases from HBO! And nothing creates anticipation and intrigue like a series of generic phrases and graphics playing in front of brief snippets of voice-over from the actual project. It's not like the made-for-'it's not TV, it's HBO'-movie written and directed by David Mamet as well as starring Al Pacino and Helen Mirren has any big name talent worth showcasing in order to drum up a little more excitement before Phil Spector hits the small-screen in two months time.
I guess HBO thinks the film has so much going for it, from the immense talent to the bizarre true story, that it really doesn't need promotion more interesting than this humdrum spot. Of course, there's still a lot of time to show the goods, so the plain-Jane just to get the word - or several words - out approach will probably work just fine, I just expect more from Home Box Office Entertainment. Take a look...
So. Did those breaking records with words get you excited to catch the odd story of one of the most successful yet eccentric music producers of all time? Not me. Well, not anymore than I already was... Mamet!
Phil Spector premieres on Sunday, March 24 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. Written and directed by David Mamet, the HBO Film stars Al Pacino, Helen Mirren, Rebecca Pidgeon, Jeffrey Tambor and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
