New Images of Hilary Swank And The Gang From Amelia

I know Mira Nair’s Amelia is all the rage when it comes to award season buzz but ‘yawn.’ Amelia Earhart’s story is inspiration and Hilary Swank is an incredible actress but for some reason I can’t help but to roll my eyes every time I see the trailer. Therefore, I’m just as unenthused with the new photos from the film posted by Fox Searchlight.

They give you a look at the film’s main characters; Amelia Earhart (Swank), of course, her husband George Putnam (Richard Gere), Gene Vidal (Ewan McGregor) with whom Earhart had a brief affair and Elinor Smith (Mia Wasikowska), another female aviator. In the last picture we see Earhart with Bill Stultz (Joe Anderson) and Slim Gordon (Aaron Abrams) with whom she flew from Newfoundland to Wales becoming the first woman to fly across the Atlantic

I’m sure I’ll be kicking myself when the film hits theaters on October 23rd, I love it and it goes on to win an Oscar.
