As all box-office prognosticators know, the weekend after New Year’s represents a traditional slump in box office returns, as the general public becomes numb
Another story of a has-been alcoholic country singer, but Country Strong just revels in the show of tragedy to show off some “intense” performances.
The trailer for Country Strong has strummed its way into our Internets, and I seriously think somebody needs to check out Gwyneth Paltrow's Netflix rental history. If The Blind Side and Crazy Heart are on there side-by-side, then I call shenanigans. Between the similarities to those films, and the scenes where people cry so hard they fall on their butts (I counted two), this is such an obvious ploy for an Oscar or a Grammy. In truth, they'd be lucky to get a Razzie for this. Hasn't Sandra Bullock had enough taken from her?
Watch Paltrow do her best Lurleen Lumpkin after the jump…
