They’ve really front-loaded the film with actors the Academy loves. Are they thinking this is a contender? The usual blockbuster crowd doesn’t care about that sort of thing, and it’s hard to imagine that the usual drama crowd will suddenly decide that this is a must-see because Viola Davis and Ben Kingsley are in it.
Very odd marketing…
