Brendan Fraser Finds Redemption in ‘The Whale’ Trailer

“People are amazing,” Fraser says as a dying man’s inextinguishable humanity shines in a teaser for Darren Aronofsky’s portrait of grief and salvation. Brendan Fraser’s career comeback role, which brought audiences to their feet at its Venice and Toronto premieres, dominates the moody trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s The Whale ahead of a Dec. 9 release by A24.
In the film, Fraser plays Charlie, a 600-pound teacher – aided on set by a mix of latex suit and digital prosthetics.
As his health crisis has his life fast ebbing away, Charlie in the short teaser clip questions: “Do you ever get the feeling people are incapable of not caring?” As Charlie searches for redemption in The Whale, friends and family seek to offer the reclusive character support and also exploit his good nature.


“People are amazing,” a defiant Charlie adds.
A household name in the 1990s and early 2000s for major films including the Mummy franchise, George of the Jungle and more dramatic titles such as Crash, Fraser’s star turn in Aronofsky’s latest drama has marked a return to the spotlight for the actor, whose performance has placed him in the top tier of best actor hopefuls this awards season.
The Whale is adapted from a stage play of the same title by Samuel D. Hunter. Sadie Sink, Hong Chau, Ty Simpkins and Samantha Morton also star.
