Nicole Kidman and Javier Barden in new Lucille Ball movie trailer


Lucy, you might have some explanation … to your fans.

In the first full trailer for “Being the Ricardos,” the new Amazon movie which will be released on December 10, we can finally hear and see Nicole Kidman as Lucille Ball. And two minutes and seven seconds later, some viewers weren’t quite sure what they had seen or heard.

The preview shows what viewers can expect from the film, which also stars Javier Bardem as Ball’s husband and co-star Desi Arnaz. Written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, the film focuses on the couple’s life during a week of filming their classic sitcom.

There appear to be a lot of issues in Heaven for the iconic couple, from allegations of infidelity to accusations that the FBI may be investigating them.

The trailer also makes a leap into the behind-the-scenes drama of “I Love Lucy,” showing Kidman as a struggling bullet trying to navigate his difficult marriage and declining career.

Fans on social media appear divided over Kidman’s portrayal of Ball.

“Emotional legitimacy to the #BeingTheRicardos trailer,” one person tweeted. “Looks like a fantastic picture. PS I’ve been a super Lucille Ball fan since I was seven and I can confirm that Nicole Kidman looks fantastic, as does Javier Bardem and the entire Star-struck cast I gonna be a Dec. ten wreck. “

One person wrote on Youtube: “People have to understand that this is a biographical drama about the life of Lucille Ball. Nicole is going to play the real person, not Lucy the character. End.”

“It smells like the Oscars to me,” added another on YouTube. “Nicole is making history for the hundredth time and I’m so here for it.”

But not everyone sang praises.

“I think Nicole Kidman is a good actress, but so far her Lucille Ball seems about as believable as her Gretchen Carlson,” a person wrote, referring to Kidman in the movie “Bombshell”.

Another person wrote, “I don’t understand how I feel about this Lucille Ball cast because she had an incredibly expressive face, and Nicole Kidman doesn’t really have the same facial range.”

“I’m still on the fence,” one fan tweeted. “It definitely gives Nicole Kidman the role of Lucille Ball, as opposed to Nicole Kidman IS Lucille Ball. But I’m still watching. It looks good.”

One person who will definitely watch is Ball and Arnaz’s daughter, Lucie Arnaz, who blessed the project earlier this year.

“Here’s the deal. You should understand. We’re not doing a remake of “I Love Lucy”. No one should pretend to be Lucy Ricardo, or do the Vitameatavegamin routine, or the chocolate shop routine, or any of the nonsense, ”she said in January.

“This is the story of Lucille Ball, my current mother, not Lucy Ricardo, and her husband, Desi Arnaz, my father, not Ricky Ricardo. There will be humor in the movie, but it’s a story them two and how they met and what went well to find the show, what went wrong, their relationship, their love affair.
