Any news regarding Tom Hiddleston is important news as far as I'm concerned. So the release of a new trailer for Hiddleston's upcoming biopic of Hank Williams, I Saw The Light, on Tuesday is an exciting time for Hiddleston lovers everywhere. And, y'know, Hank Williams fans too. But, priorities, people! There's been a lot of excitement regarding the movie, with some critics calling this the role that might win Tom Hiddleston an Oscar (although the change of its release date will make the movie ineligible for next year's Oscars). With a trailer reminiscent of Walk The Line, it's exciting to see Hiddleston take on a singing role, as well as playing the lead in a biopic. He deserves the level of recognition this will bring him. And, going by the trailer, the movie is going to be totally emotional too.
Documenting the tumultuous life of Hank Williams, I Saw The Light tells the story of his rise to fame, and the demons he faced once he became successful. Faced with temptations such as alcohol, drugs, and women, in the trailer we see the musician grapple with his fame while juggling a family life. Hiddleston's wife in the movie is played by Elizabeth Olsen, his rumored IRL girlfriend, who challenges his drinking and on tour behaviour, while raising their children.
