Trailer Watch: Kate Winslet as Mildred Pierce

Trailer Watch: Kate Winslet as Mildred Pierce

One of the great, satisfying page-turners is James M. Cain’s 1941 Mildred Pierce, which was turned into an excellent 1945 movie starring Joan Crawford. (Several of Cain’s hardboiled novels worked as films, including The Postman Always Rings Twice and Double Indemnity). Well, the Killer team of Christine Vachon and Todd Haynes have adapted the novel into a five-part HBO mini-series. The trailer ran before HBO’s debut of Boardwalk Empire Sunday night.

The new and original trailers are below.

Hat Tip: Scott Macaulay.
