First Trailer for ‘Florence Foster Jenkins’ with Meryl Streep & Hugh Grant

Meryl Streep & Hugh Grant

The first trailer for Stephen Frears‘ next film, Florence Foster Jenkins, starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant was released online Wednesday.

This musician biopic is about the opera diva, Florence Foster Jenkins, who was known for having legions of fans, despite the fact that she was dubbed the “worst vocalist of all time.”

The cast also includes Rebecca Ferguson, John Kavanagh, Simon Helberg, and Nina Arianda. The film opens May 6th in the U.K. but there’s no U.S. date at the moment. There’s absolutely no singing in the teaser trailer, only the shocked faces of Grant, Arianda and Helberg. Check it out below:

The true story of Florence Foster Jenkins (Meryl Streep), the legendary New York heiress and socialite who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. The voice she heard in her head was beautiful, but to everyone else it was hilariously awful. Her “husband” and manager, St Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant) an aristocratic English actor, was determined to protect his beloved Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give a public concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944, St Clair knew he faced his greatest challenge.
