The brief teaser below doesn’t give away much of anything, other than seeing Brendan Fraser in a fat suit. In the film, Fraser plays a reclusive English teacher who’s morbidly obese and attempting to form a relationship with his estranged teen daughter. Based on an acclaimed play, The Whale has Oscar buzz for Fraser as Best Actor, and it won’t be a surprise if he’s nominated. Director Darren Aronofsky’s movies have earned multiple acting noms (Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei in The Wrestler, Ellen Burstyn in Requiem For A Dream) and one win (Natalie Portman in Black Swan) at the Academy Awards. A brilliant Jennifer Lawrence was unfairly snubbed in Aronofsky’s mother! in 2017. The trailer for The Whale:
