You would think that with a powerhouse cast including Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, paired with great source material in the Oscar winning original “Secret In Their Eyes,” that there would be a lot more buzz around the remake. But even though it’s arriving right in the middle of awards season, the picture has had no starry festival appearances, and doesn’t really seem to be on the radar. But STX Entertainment is sticking with it and has dropped a new mini-trailer for the movie.
The picture tells the story of an investigator who faces her worst nightmare when her own daughter is murdered, leading to years long quest to bring the killer to justice. It’s a tough story and Roberts was prepared for the possibility that the set might not be a barrel of laughs. “During a cast read-thru at one point somebody said something funny and we all laughed, and I said ‘Does everyone realize that is our only moment of joy we will ever have together?’ which ended up not being true fortunately,” she told ET.
“Secret In Their Eyes” opens on November 20th. Watch below.
