I Challenge You To Watch The ‘Four Good Days’ Trailer Without Crying

The buzz is all over the place about the new Glenn Close and Mila Kunis movie Four Good Days. The one thing most people are talking about is that they can’t get through the trailer without crying. Of course, that means if they can’t get through the trailer without crying, they won’t be able to get through the movie without bawling their eyes out.

Glenn Close just hit a homerun recently when she starred in Hillbilly Elegy. She was nominated for four prestigious industry awards. She hasn’t won any of them yet but the verdict is still out on The Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. This makes the eighth time she’s been nominated for an Oscar and here’s to wishing her good luck on this one.

Her 91 acting credits begin with her performance as “Neighbor” in the 1975 television series Great Performances. But she soon was earning an even bigger name in the industry with her great performances in The World According to Garp, The Big Chill, Fatal Attraction, Dangerous Liaisons, and 101 Dalmatians just to name a few among the many.

I can’t help but notice though how closely the main themes are in her two latest movies. She’s the mother of a suffering addict in both. While Amy Adams plays her daughter in Hillbilly Elegy, Mila Kunis plays it in Four Good Days. Now we all know Mila Kunis from That 70’s Show but were you aware that by the time she was cast to play Jackie Burkhart in 1998, she had already accumulated 16 acting credits starting in 1994 with her role as “Young Hope” on Days of Our Lives?

She’s still the voice of Meg on Family Guy! But we will never be able to forget her performances in Bad Moms, Ted, Friends with Benefits, Black Swan, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall among the long list of the great work she has done. Do you think Glenn Close and Mila Kunis were made for each other in this one?

So here’s the challenge, try to make it through this trailer without crying! I bet you can’t. And here’s a tip. Don’t try to stop yourself from crying. It will only make it happen even faster.

Even though the movie was initially released on January 25, 2020, it will be in U.S. theaters on May 1, 2021…
