Katie Holmes is a vigilante serial killer in the trailer for Miss Meadows

Aug. 20, 2014by: Graham McMorrow

Miss Meadows, played by Katie Holmes, has found the perfect disguise when she’s not moonlighting as a murderous vigilante. She plays a sweet and wholesome elementary school teacher. Perfect hair, smile, and a Sunday dress; she’s a killer alright. Watching the trailer for MISS MEADOWS it reminded me a lot of Bobcat Goldthwait’s GOD BLESS AMERICA, but without the funny satire. This dark looking drama might be a little too formula for some, but this one interests me.

Katie Holmes is a fine actress and has done some really fine work (DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK, THANK YOU FOR SMOKING, PIECES OF APRIL), but it’s definitely time for her to step out of the typical roles she’s used to, and this might do the trick. The film was written directed by Karen Hopkins, of BECAUSE I SAID SO fame, so hopefully this is a change in the right direction for both ladies.

The film also stars James Badge Dale, Mary Kay Place, and Jean Smart.

MISS MEADOWS hits theaters November 14, 2014.

A less subtle disguise?

Looking forward to it! It does seem like she is going for more roles since her 'escape' from Mr. Cruise.

I actually did like her performance in "Batman Begins" (to use that cliche, 'I don't understand the hate'); I thought she was cute in her role. I also found "Pieces of April" interesting.

The truth is, Nolan's brother didn't write her part with all that much depth in the first one. She was simply the weakest character, and unfortunately people took that out on the actress instead of laying the blame where it was deserved.

Ha

Katie Holms as a vigilante killer is about as believable as Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher.

So Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher is less realistic than Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt in EVERY MI movie???

Tom Cruise isn't believable as Jack Reacher for the same reason Keanu Reeves isn't believable as John Constantine, they just do not fit the what the character looks like. Reacher is a 6' 5" 220" beast and Constantine is a 45+ year old blonde brit. Sry but those characters are physically nothing like those chose to portray them, thus making them not believable in their roles imo.

Always had a soft spot for Katie Holmes back in the day

and I'm glad she jumped off the Tom Cruise crazy train. She's a solid actress, but she was clearly outclassed in BATMAN BEGINS.

Despite that, she rocks in the right part. I hope this works out well for her.

Tribeca

I saw this at the Tribeca Fest and I have to say that this trailer takes the movie a lot more seriously than the movie takes itself. The film is definitely comical and the audience was laughing all throughout. The tone of the film is closer to that of Serial Mom although there's sort of a compelling part to Meadows' insanity whereas Serial Mom was pretty much an evil bitch. Oh, and Katie Holmes ROCKS the part.
