‘Smashed’ Trailer: Aaron Paul Goes From ‘Breaking Bad’ to Breaking a Habit
‘Breaking Bad‘ was a pretty big turning point for both Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. Though Cranston had already racked up a following from his role on ‘Malcolm in the Middle’ and his vast list of supporting characters on the big screen, it was Paul who really went from being a semi-unknown actor to getting a mainstream fan base. Now his latest project ‘Smashed,’ of which we’re already fans, is hitting theaters this October, and you can actually see bits of his performance (rather than just reading about it) in the all-new trailer.
‘Smashed,’ the independently produced recovery film, also marks a big moment for Paul’s co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who portrays a woman trying to kick her drinking habit through AA. Her husband tries to be nothing but supportive, but ultimately has to choose between partying and his relationship. Also featured are real-life hubbies Megan Mullally (‘Will & Grace’) and Nick Offerman (‘Parks and Rec‘), Academy Award-winner Octavia Spencer (‘The Help‘), and Mary Kay Pace.
‘Smashed’ is already getting rave reviews from critics at the Toronto International Film Festival, Sundance, the Deauville Film Festival, and, most importantly, us. Check out the trailer below and be sure to check out our review.
