Teaser Trailer for HBO's Hemingway & Gellhorn Starring Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman

Posted on March 15, 2012

HBO went all out for its upcoming movie, Hemingway & Gellhorn. Just about everyone involved has either won an Oscar, been nominated for an Oscar or has picked up a few Golden Globes or Emmys -- including the producers, the editor Walter Murch (The English Patient, Apocalypse Now), the director of photography Rogier Stoffers (Quills, John Q), the production designer Geoffrey Kirkland (The Right Stuff, Get Low) and the costume designer Ruth Myers (Emma, L.A. Confidential). We were exhausted after reading all the honors and awards this group has racked up. The film tells the story of the romance and marriage between literary icon Ernest Hemingway (Oscar nominee Clive Owen) and war correspondent Martha Gellhorn (Oscar winner Nicole Kidman). They covered the Spanish Civil War and other conflicts, so their romance was pretty adventurous. Gellhorn was also a novelist, and is considered one of the greatest war correspondents of the 20th century. The Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism is named after her.

The film is directed by multiple Academy Award nominee Philip Kaufman (The Unbearable Lightness of Being, The Right Stuff). The screenplay is by Jerry Stahl (Permanent Midnight, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Barbara Turner (The Company, Pollock). David Strathairn, Molly Parker and Rodrigo Santoro also star. With that kind of pedigree, this film has high expectations from Hemingway fans. Here's a teaser trailer for the film, which will premiere on HBO on May 28, 2012:
