Check Out Ernest Hemingway’s Booze-And-Explosion-Packed Life In HBO Trailer

Ernest Hemingway was known for his larger-than-life antics like wrestling bears, hunting rhinos, and shooting himself in the face, so it figures the quality-peddlers at HBO would eventually make a movie about him. It’s not just about him, though – the title is Hemingway & Gellhorn, and it depicts Hemingway’s relationship with fellow writer Martha Gellhorn.

As you can see from the trailer, the pair are played by Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman, and from all the explosions you’d almost think this was a big-screen movie rather than an HBO one. It’s even got a major Hollywood director behind the camera: Phillip Kaufmann, so this looks like something worth checking out.
