A24 company presented the official trailer of Darren Aronofsky’s new film The Whale starring Brendan Fraser.

The movie tells about a middle-aged man Charlie who weighs 240 kg and tries to reconnect with his 17-year-old daughter. Once he left his family for a lover who later died. Because of the pain and guilt, Charlie began to overeat.

Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, The Wrestler, Mother!) was trying to make this film for a decade, but could not find an actor for the main role until he saw Brendan Fraser (The Mummy, George of the Jungle, Blast from the Past, Crash, Doom Patrol).

And Fraser did a great job with this difficult role. At the Venice Film Festival, after the screening of the film, the actor was honored with a 6-minute standing ovation. The film won three awards at once in Venice.

The premiere of the The Whale is scheduled for December 9, 2022 in the United States. The date of the premiere in Ukraine is currently unknown.
