The First Look at Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson Is Seriously WTF
We're all clearly being trolled here.
Last January, reports revealed that Joseph Fiennes, brother of Ralph Fiennes, would play the late Michael Jackson in a British comedy. Welp, the trailer for the film, called Urban Myths, is finally here, and it seems Mr. Fiennes as Michael Jackson is doing his best job at shocking us — or trolling us. One of the two.
The story is apparently a lighthearted portrayal of a "reportedly true event." That is, a supposed road trip MJ took with Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando. The trailer is definitely a confusing mess, even if you manage to put all the "Joseph Fiennes playing a black man" controversy aside.
Seriously, WTF 2017? You were supposed to be sacred.
But hey, Rupert Grint is in the film, so maybe the Harry Potter fan in us will give this film a whirl.
