Here's Laurel & Hardy...
The US trailer for Stan & Ollie has debuted, and it casts a light on the pair’s strained relationship in their later years.
Set for release in January next year, the biopic follows Stan Laurel (Coogan) and Oliver Hardy (Reilly) as they embark on a tour of Britain during the later stages of their career.
But as an initial trailer already teased, the tour soon becomes far from the success they anticipated- with the pair forced to confront some of their oldest gripes with each other as they play at half-empty venues.
In the second trailer, we see the pair feeling the strain on their relationship as old grudges come to a head during their UK tour.
An official synopsis teases: “With their golden era long behind them, the pair embarks on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille (Shirley Henderson) and Ida (Nina Arianda) – a formidable double act in their own right – the pair’s love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.”
The film opens on January 11 2019.
