Oh, wow. You guys.

YOU GUYS.

I have a challenge for you, and it's a doozy. If you can pull it off, then you will win my respect. And since I don't respect any of you, anyone can win. All you have to do is make it through the entire three minutes of the trailer for W.E. without rolling your eyes a single time. Directed by Madonna (yup), it's... well... here's the synopsis:

W.E. tells the story of two fragile but determined women - Wally Winthrop and Wallis Simpson - separated by more than six decades. In 1998, lonely New Yorker Wally Winthrop (Abbie Cornish) is obsessed with what she perceives as the ultimate love story: King Edward's VIII's abdication of the British throne for the woman he loved, American divorcée Wallis Simpson. But Wally's research, including several visits to the Sotheby's auction of the Windsor Estate, reveals that the couple's life together was not as perfect as she thought. Weaving back and forth in time, W.E. intertwines Wally's journey of discovery in New York with the story of Wallis (Andrea Riseborough) and Edward (James D'Arcy), from the glamorous early days of their romance to the slow unraveling of their lives in the decades that followed.

Good luck.

I mean, damn. I watched it with Mrs. TK and I think we may have set an eye-rolling record for our house. That shit is bad - a mawkish, overly sentimental, hackneyed, trite, plodding bucket of garbage. But hey, congrats on cramming that many cliched lines and title cards into a single trailer. That's actually quite impressive.

Abbie Cornish, I expect better from you young lady.
