So remember way back when when I got all excited about the prospect of Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson getting their period piece on to play the Boleyn sisters? Oh, the hotness, right? Well, uh, sort of. I can’t exactly put my finger on it, but the hot is kind of muted in the new trailer for “The Other Boleyn Girl.” They’re both pretty, of course, but in their 16th Century garb they look so very young, almost adolescent. Also those headpieces are pretty much hotness shields. I’m not even sure it’s possible to rock one of those and look sexy. Still, the movie looks promising, even if the ending is a fait accompli. And is that Kristin Scott Thomas I spy as the Boleyn girls’ mother? The imaginary gene pool in that family is, well, wow.Check out the trailer (catch it in hi-def here) and let me know what you think. Period perfection or costumed craziness? And more importantly, which Boleyn girl is hotter? Let it never be said that I don’t ask the tough questions here at Surrenders.
