'The Great Debaters' trailer is on Yahoo

We now have our first glimpse of "The Great Debaters," which was made in Mansfield and northwest Louisiana during the summer. It's getting a Christmas Day release and Yahoo.com has its first trailer. Click here to see it.

What do you think? What do you recognize? It's the Weinstein Co.'s unofficial Oscar hopeful. Does it have a shot?

Chris Jay of the Robinson Film Center pushed me to the trailer and said, "It could be the critical and financial sucess that Shreveport has been hoping for."

Chris obviously forgot "Factory Girl." :)

Thanks for letting us know that the trailer was up. My son was an extra in the movie and is one of the little boys that are shown for a split second during the preview. For an eight year old, this is the most exciting thing that could happen!

If I had been in a movie trailer when I was 8, I would have flipped. And my classmates would have been lucky that Al Gore hadn't yet invented the Internet.
