Dallas Buyers Club trailer: please take Matthew McConaughey seriously now

If you’d noticed that Matthew McConaughey had been looking rather terrifyingly gaunt recently, this is why. He dropped nearly 50 pounds — and he was pretty slim to start with — to play this AIDS patient. He’s clearly been making a dramatic shift over the past few years to be seen as a serious actor, and it seems to be paying off. This film looks fantastic. Hard to watch, probably, but fantastic (hopefully) nevertheless.
