It seems like Judi Dench has a knack of turning up in award-season dark horse films every year. A credit to her acting talent, this year she stars in the excellent and gut-wrenching Philomena. To promote the film, Dench and costar Steve Coogan teamed up with FunnyorDie to spoof one of Dench's other big screen characters: M from the James Bond series.
Funny stuff. Now switch gears and get tickets for Philomena, which opens in theaters November 22. Here's the trailer to give you an idea of what the movie is about. Note: There is some strong language in this trailer.
UPDATE: Deadline reports that this afternoon that the MPAA has repealed its R rating on the film. Philomena is now rated PG-13. Guess Agent Coogan's "words" did the trick.
