WATCH: Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman in HBO's Hemingway & Gelhorn

I'm not quite sold on Clive Owen as Ernest Hemingway, Nicole Kidman as his war-correspondent third wife, Martha Gellhorn, or the sumptuous look of director Philip Kaufman's take on war-torn WWII-era Europe, but here's your first look at the May "epic motion picture event" Hemingway & Gellhorn.

It immediately calls to mind Kaufman's Henry & June, what with the tempestuous mid-century literary marriage and famous faces playing historical figures -- David Straithairn as John Dos Passos! Lars Ulrich as Dutch documentarian Joris Ivens?? -- but the trailer never lets you forget you're watching Big Time Movie Stars, which is kind of the problem.

    I can smell the mould from here.

  • blizzard bound says:

    Is that really Nicole's voice?? I won't see anything with her in it, anyway, so this one will pass me by.

  • Dee says:

    I cannot wait, Nicole Kidman is my favorite actress. I don't like the sound of that voice, it sounds so rough. Nicole has a very soft femine voice.

  • Amy says:

    Blizzard, I doubt Kidman is crying over your not seeing her in anything.

    If you know your Hemingway and Gellhorn then that is them on the screen. They may be literary and journalism greats but they were also about the gloss and attention they got.
