    thought I started a thread on this already.
    This looks good.
    I am familiar with the play which won a ton of Tony awards including one for Viola Davis and one for Denzel Washington. Take a look at the clip from the Broadway play I rarely hear applause like this in the middle on a monologue.


    Now here comes the movie which of course has Oscar hopes especially for a Viola Davis (my favorite actress who is long overdue for some accolades). Denzel is directing though.
    Here is the first trailer:


    Here is the second trailer:


    There are lot more diverse Oscar hopefuls this year probably due to the recent controversy.
    You have Fences, Loving, Birth of a Nation, Hidden Figures and more that I'm sure I am forgetting.
    Thoughts on Fences or the more diverse Oscar contenders this year?

    It looks like it's going to be a great movie. I've heard of the play but I've never seen it.

    I saw that clip comparing Denzel to James Earl Jones. Always was great.
