The Romantics Trailer: Katie Holmes, Homewrecker
Did Michelle Williams take the career we thought Katie Holmes was going to have? Once upon a time, Holmes was regarded as the Dawson's Creeker with the most promise, an actress with subtlety and star power who'd certainly have a healthy life in movies after her show happened. And then, things happened. Now, Holmes is only a part-time actress, and one of her scattered few projects is The Romantics, where she goes head to head with Anna Paquin.
The film was one of two Holmes had at Sundance (the other being The Extra Man), yet neither had the buzz of Blue Valentine, which starred Sundance stalwart Williams. Maybe that's because of what this trailer makes the film look like: a conventional love triangle that's been cast with TV actors, including Josh Duhamel as the object of affection Holmes and Paquin fight over. The Romantics might be the first time Holmes has topped a call sheet in six years, but is this where any of us thought she'd end up?
