Denzel doesn't need to like you in first Fences trailer

This Oscar season already looks plenty packed with movies like LA LA LAND, ARRIVAL, MANCHESTER BY THE SEA, MOONLIGHT and others all vying for top prizes. But as the season officially kicks off we will see little movies start to come out of the woodwork that could pack a massive wallop. One of those movies just dropped its first trailer.

FENCES, which has Denzel Washington pulling double duty as actor and director, is an adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name by August Wilson, and is about a former baseball player working as a garbage man in order to support his family. But I shan’t say more. Watch below!

This trailer shows Denzel being just as Denzel as we want him to be—layered, intense, unpredictable, charming, etc. Viola Davis looks to be knocking it out of the park too, as both look like serious contenders for top awards this year. The movie looks like a passionate, aggressive look at the American dream from the perspective of an impoverished black family, which is something many would say our society could use right now. Reviews for this movie have yet to really pour out, but it’s gonna be one to catch for sure, let alone for Denzel and Viola. That last shot though!

FENCES hits theaters this Christmas with Denzel Washington, Viola Davis and Mykelti Williamson.

Hello Fellow JoBlo'ers,

I had the opportunity to spend 2 days on the set of this and play a miltary recruiter in one of the scenes. On day 2 I was actually given a mark to stand on and that day Denzel was directing. It was another unit director who set up the scene but darned if Denzel didn't come in and walk right past me. After he left the room their was a deafening silence as the other background actors and myself just stared at each other and I finally spoke up and said, "Guys, greatness
Hello Fellow JoBlo'ers,

I had the opportunity to spend 2 days on the set of this and play a miltary recruiter in one of the scenes. On day 2 I was actually given a mark to stand on and that day Denzel was directing. It was another unit director who set up the scene but darned if Denzel didn't come in and walk right past me. After he left the room their was a deafening silence as the other background actors and myself just stared at each other and I finally spoke up and said, "Guys, greatness just walked past me!" Then we all laughed out loud and all had this "did that just happen" expression on our faces. It was a moment I will never forget. Then, my daughters and I went to see Magnificent 7 on Saturday and we saw the trailer and I leaned over and told her that was the movie I was a background for...her eyes just lit up and smiled. Just makes it all the more surreal and humbling. I can't wait to check it out.

There's an AMAZING scene study video on YouTube. It shows James Earl Jones doing the scene shown in the trailer in the original Broadway production. It's serious, intense, and almost scary. Then it shows Denzel in the Broadway revival and it's light, funny, and moving. It's great to see the exact same dialogue, same scene, but played to drastically different. Look up "Fences James Earl Jones Denzel"

unfortunately, I think you (like the audience) misinterpreted that scene. It isn't portrayed in a light and funny tone. The audience there is ignorant and their laughing at it is innapropriate. It really ruins the flow of Denzels performance.
