WATCH and COMPARE Todd Hayne’s "Mildred Pierce" Remake Trailer To The Original Starring Joan Crawford

Watch the new trailer for HBO’s upcoming miniseries remake of the 1945 gay cult movie Mildred Pierce, which starred Joan Crawford as Mildred Pierce, Ann Blythe as bitchy daughter Veda, and Eve Arden as wise cracking friend and Mildred’s partner Ida Corwyn.

This time around Kate Winslet takes on the role of the long suffering Mildred, Evan Rachel Wood (who has SUCKED  in True Blood this season) as Veda the BITCH and Mare Winningham taking over the Eve Arden role?

Directed by Todd Haynes the HBO version will run as a mini-series with 5 episodes. 

Where I love Todd Hanyes work and I am sure It will be a very pretty and a nicely shot mini-series but to me this is l gay sacrilege!

Could Evan Rachel Wood ever pull off:  “With this money I can get away from you. From you and your chickens and your pies and your kitchens and everything that smells of grease. I can get away from this shack with its cheap furniture. And this town and its dollar days, and its women that wear uniforms and its men that wear overalls.”  I don’t think so.

**You can watch BOTH the original 1945 Trailer and the HBO Miniseries Trailer after the jump.  (Please feel free to leave comments.  I would LOVE to hear what has to be said about this!)
