A Glimpse Of What The Real-Life Kennedys Don't Want You To See!

| Filed under: TV NewsKatie Holmes

Oh, boy!

This may shed some light on why The Kennedys are attempting to keep this from airing in the United State!

Check out the trailer for the eight-part miniseries, The Kennedys, originally set to play on The History Channel and starring Greg Kinnear, Katie Holmes, and Tom Wilkinson (above)!

Pretty scandalous for a trailer! We definitely think that a lot of people are going to want to watch this one!

Fingers crossed that it gets released here!

Thoughts??

    HEY, THIS SHIT LOOKS PRETTY GOOD. PRETTY MUCH TRUE "EVERYONE CAN BE BOUGHT". NO WONDER THE STIFFS IN THE KENNEDY FAM DONT WANT IT RELEASED… TOO CLOSE TO HOME.



  2. 2

    I was buyin it Perez….u got me. Collect your paycheck. No, the only I saw was iffy acting and bad accents. I realize you were simply creating "buzz" but the actual clip destroyed it. no payoff…. exposes your trick.



  3. 3

    damn this looks a lot better that most of the shit they are trying to jam down our throats. I hope it gets on air!



  4. 4

    whats scandalous about it? Luckily i live in Canada so I get to watch it. Whats wrong with Americans? don't like to see honest portrayals of presidents. JFK was a known womaniser and yet you impeach Bill Clinton for sticking a cigar in some whores hoo ha. I guess I just don't understand American politics



  5. 5

    I didn't see anything that juicy.



  6. 6

    Katie Holmes is such a bad fucking actress



  7. 7

    hell yeah I wanna watch this bitch…..Let Katie have one good movie -I'm sure it will get released

    Everything (and far more) on the trailer has been out in the ether for decades. For starters, try 'A Question of Character, The Life of John F. Kennedy' by Thomas C. Reeves if you can still find it.



  9. 9

    Too bad we won't get to see it, unless we live in Canada.

    Re: Yukon_Cornelius

    It ain't the American PEOPLE that are stopping this from airing. Get it right.



  11. 11

    Damn looks good besides Katie Holmes weak attempt at an accent



  12. 12

    From what I understand, there was a lot of effort put forth to try and downplay all the womanising and deception that was a part of the Kennedy lifestyle, so I can understand the remaining family not wanting this aired; it could destroy what's left of the Camelot Image. I'm glad I live in Canada so I'll be able to watch it.

    Re: Quichie – sorry



  14. 14

    Re: Chrisabella – hey we should watch it together!



  15. 15

    Re: Yukon_Cornelius – Is it true that jeans and a jean jacket is called a Canadian tuxedo?



  16. 16

    Sorry, looks horrible. Katie Holmes looks like she is playing dress up. I think the girl that plays Barb on Big Love would have been a much better decision. Greg Kinear is a great actor, but not digger him in this role.



  17. 17

    wheres the scandalous part? wtf?



  18. 18

    Really want to see this..it'll find a way…right??



  19. 19

    looks good, ill be watching



  20. 20

    Between the internet, the free market and the fact that the Kennedys are public figures, this will air somewhere or end up on DVD. It's not like people don't know about their skeletons anyway. The Kennedys are just ginning up more interest in people seeing it by complaining.



  21. 21

    So Katie and Tom are Republican Scientologists ?!?



  22. 22

    I think it looks fantastic. Kinear is spectacular & I hope Holmes gets her chance to shine. I've always thought her married life has a lonely undercurrent that could resemble the loneliness that Jackie's seemed to have.



  23. 23

    I'm a history teacher, and I can tell from 30 seconds that this is just some Lifetime original movie for the people that aren't knowledgeable of the Kennedy history. It looks remedial and simply unprofessional.



  24. 24

    There are many books that discuss the Kennedy brothers' womanizing. How ’bout all the folks who are so upset that this won't be released pick up a book. There is enough crap on t.v. already with these idiots on reality shows.



  25. 25

    WANT. TO . SEE. THIS.



  26. 26

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – yes but we only where those when we're getting married



  27. 27

    Wow, all of the sudden The Jersey Shore looks like good TV. What a cheesy piece of fiction. next……………



  28. 28

    Why are we so shocked by this mini series ? It's not like we think their saints !



  29. 29

    Being from Boston, I'm actually really curious to see this. Shitty accents all around, but I would like to see how much they go into the nitty gritty stuff that went on that everyone knows about. I still like the Kennedys, but this still looks interesting.



  30. 30

    I think it looks pretty good…minus Katie Holmes of course. Worst Jackie O impression I've ever seen.



  31. 31

    I think this looks really good. I hope Showtime or some other network picks it up. I can kind of understand why the History Channel wouldn't run with it, but certainly they must've known the angle the writers and directors were going with.



  32. 32

    Katie Holmes looks beautiful, I must say that.



  33. 33

    Well i like Katie. But I cant see her in that roll. I dont think its very convincing. :S



  34. 34

    I had wanted to see it before but now I really want to see it



  35. 35

    JFK was an era where people actually looked up to their presidents. I think that maybe the US is a little bit too interested in trying to expose, destroy what has long since expired. Are you never content unless you are smearing someone?



  36. 36

    Looks pretty good, although it doesnt look like it adds anything people havent known all along about the old man. The "myth" of Camelot is about as debunked as The Wizard of Oz, hiding behind a curtain. Hard to believe whats left of the family is powerful or sober enough to block this. Kinnear is spot on - but Katie Holmes' presence is enough to want to block any project.



  37. 37

    Oh my gosh!! This looks soooo good! I love Greg Kinnear and I hope Katie Holmes finally has a breakthrough role. It looks as if she does quite well in this movie.



  38. 38

    Ha! Is this from SNL? I LOVE that the fake hair upstages everyone, but, c'mon, this is "developmentally challenged." These are the worst impersonations of JFK, Jackie and Joseph ever put on film. Like Camelot retold by the writers of the 80s series Dynasty. It could become a cult classic.



  39. 39

    Love it. Hope they have a good marilyn. And as for scandalous Please, after what we've had in the White House the last 30 yrs this ain't nothin!!
    P.S. The Bush gang showed this country just what could be bought, us, and sold away too. Grow up people.



  40. 40

    i told u when u first printed abt this the Kennedys werent going to like it..the so called teacher giving her review: STFU!! Anyone who knows the stories abt them would appreciate this, it looks very close to the real deal..KATIE LOOKS GREAT and how can ppl say stuff abt her as Jackie O from a 2min clip that doesnt even show her much, duh….it cant be worse than JLOW's performance of the real Selena…errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr



  41. 41

    It looks mind blowing (no pun intended)



  42. 42

    JFK was way more than just a womanizer. Documents that were released (having been classified up until then) have shown that he actually hosted what were practically orgies in the white house. There were times when, in the middle of a party, he and one or two other guys (also high-ranking politicians) would go into the coat room (or even another right next to where the party was held) and bang her before returning. It goes WAY deeper than that.



  43. 43

    IT'S FUCKING TRUE! PEOPLE THINK OTHER PEOPLE CAN BE BOUGHT! CAPITALISM! BRING ON THE TRUTH!



  44. 44

    somebody pick this up!! this looks pretty fucking good



  45. 45

    They were all womanizers, their father was the brought his Gloria Swanson home to meet the family, and shove it in his wife's face that he was shacking up with her. Like father, like son. They were corrupt and they had Daddy as the prime example for that as well. He was a bootlegger. Joe paid off so many people and called in so many favors to get his boys elected. He did everything and anything. Caroline and Maria are just going to have to get over it. You can't whitewash the Kennedy's in this day and age, their power madness was well documented and witnessed. And the women, the women they left in their wake is akin to whore mongering and led to the death of one poor woman in Chappaquiddick. One might say that all in all they were a vile breed and not be off the mark.



  46. 46

    Re: idiggory – really? which? I would like to know where to find these documents…. That aside, part of the reason the movie was blocked from the History Channel was because there weren't accurate or even trying to be close. Actual men working for Kennedy even said thats not what happened. I believe the site stopkennedysmears from Brave New Films has a mini documentary



  47. 47

    Judging from this clip, it could be a worthwhile miniseries. I hope Katie Holmes doesn't ruin it.



  48. 48

    i miss the kennedy's & they were our royalty!



  49. 49

    I can't wait for this miniseries!



  50. 50

    WOW… that looks so good. I hope it does come out. That could actually give Katie her career back. I want to see this!!!!

  51. twin1 says – reply to this


    51

    do you think Mary Jo will make an appearance????



  52. 52

    Looks like the typical, pretty much played out Kennedy "drama" - yawn. The actors don't look like the Kennedys and it looks boring as hell.



  53. 53

    everyone should read "An Unfinished Life: John F Kennedy." by Robert Dallek. This miniseries looks completely based on that. The trailer has some moments of cheese, but I really like the male casting for the movie.



  54. 54

    I definitely want to see this!!! :)



  55. 55

    I definitely want to see this!!! :)



  56. 56

    They should have got Arnold Shwarzenegger to play JFK that would have been awesome



  57. 57

    @Noah Doubt: I agree with your comments. I have disliked the Kennedy clan from the beginning because they were so unethical, not held accountable for their actions (i.e., Mary Jo Kopechne's death, et al), ruthless politicking. (And I'm a Democrat.) Bobby may have been the worst; the terrier who doesn't let go. The Kennedy women were treated like commodities. Why anyone thought this series had to be made is a mystery.



  58. 58

    Re: Yukon_Cornelius – The American people are not the one's stopping this show from airing. And there is nothing scandalous about this, so we're not really missing out on anything. We've already had ton's of TV special's, books etc on everything there is to know about the Kennedy's, so I don't even know why they would waste their time repeating more of the same crap.



  59. 59

    I don't care how crappy this movie is to some…I still want to watch it. The more they try to stop the more curious people will be about and it's ten times better than the crap on TV now anyway.

    This banning brought to you from the History channel that gives you Ice Road Truckers and Pawn Stars; and I've left some out.



  61. 61

    I wanna see it so bad!



  62. 62

    This looks AMAZING



  63. 63

    I realllllllyyyy wan to see that show.



  64. 64

    And?

    Shocking it is not. Just business as usual for most oligarchs/plutocrats.

    There is nothing different than what is going on today.



  65. 65

    Who wants to win a trip to TULSA? I don't care about the Kennedy thing…that commercial before it is hilarious!!



  66. 66

    That looks really, really good. Will be watching!
