It’s Oscars season, and Hollywood is pulling out its biggest hitters ahead of February’s Academy Awards.
Call Me By Your Name has wooed critics. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is already making waves.
But they could have competition in the form of Kris Kristofferson voicing a dead dog turned wedding planner.
The trailer for Best Friend From Heaven is starting to go viral on Twitter due to the ludicrous plotline and the quite frankly breathtaking (not in a good way) CGI.
The blurb beneath the trailer on YouTube goes a little something like this: ‘When a tragic accident takes the life of her dog, Tara is forced to cancel her wedding. With a little help from above, their small town rallies together to make sure these two are able to have the wedding of their dreams.’
But the blurb doesn’t do this baby justice.
Firstly, there’s a dog being run over while chasing a squirrel, and his owner appearing to laugh.
Then, the dog, named Gabriel, talks – with the jaw of a ventroliquist dummy, it looks like – and it’s Grammy-award winning Kris ‘Me and Bobby McGee’ Kristofferson’s voice that comes out.
Gabriel then returns to earth to plan the wedding of his owner and her boyfriend who didn’t get married due to the dog dying on the same day. Bummer.
We’re not quite sure if whoever edited the trailer know how trailers work, as the conclusion of the film – spoiler, the wedding goes swimmingly and the couple get married – is right there in the promo.
But we doubt that’ll effect the box office takings too much.
The general consensus of the comments left beneath the trailer on YouTube is: ‘I still can’t tell if this is a real movie or not.’
However, others have high hopes.
One person wrote: ‘Just in time for Oscar season’, with another comment reading: ‘This is this decade’s Snakes On A Plane… Im calling it right now. Instant Cult Classic.’
Well, we can’t stop watching it, so we guess it’s a masterpiece.
