Watch the Fences Trailer and Let Denzel Washington and Viola Davis Casually Turn You Into a Sniveling Wreck


Denzel Washington and Viola Davis saw that cute little awards campaign that the rest of Hollywood has going on, and they're here to crash the party. Paramount just released the trailer for the Washtington-directed Fences, which is based on August Wilson's stage play about a former baseball star turned trash collector. If the two leads' quivering, tear-stained performances didn't already convince you that this movie is awards-bound, know that Washington and Davis appeared together in Fences's 2010 Broadway revival, and both won Tonys for their performances. So, yeah, get excited to see this when it comes out this Christmas, and then block off a few days to think about Viola Davis's character and weep.
