A few weeks ago I saw the trailer for “The Soloist” before “Lakeview Terrace.” (Yeah, I paid to see “Lakeview Terrace.”)
Notwithstanding the “Magic Negro” element – Jamie Foxx plays a musically gifted schizophrenic homeless man who helps Robert Downey Jr. become a better person – I was looking forward to seeing “The Soloist” next month.
The trailer is embedded below. Foxx and Downey look like they brought their best game.
Alas, show-biz blogger Nikki Finke reports today that Paramount has postponed the release of “The Soloist” till next March. The reason given was vague, but apparently it is not a reflection of the movie’s quality.
Oh well. I’ll wait.
