Being the Ricardos – Official Trailer | Prime Video

A story behind one of the most influential shows of all time. Here’s the official trailer from Being the Ricardos, in theaters December 10 and on Prime Video December 21.

Lucille Ball (Nicole Kidman) and Desi Arnaz (Javier Bardem) are threatened by shocking personal accusations, a political smear and cultural taboos in Academy Award®-winning writer and director Aaron Sorkin’s behind-the-scenes drama Being the Ricardos. A revealing glimpse of the couple’s complex romantic and professional relationship, the film takes audiences into the writers’ room, onto the soundstage and behind closed doors with Ball and Arnaz during one critical production week of their groundbreaking sitcom “I Love Lucy.”

    Looks like she has 2 different looks with different prosthetics. An early pre fame face, then a slimmer after fame look. I’ll definitely check it out.

    Glad to see Kidman getting the movie role she deserves! The way she says ‘I’m Lucile Ball, when I’m being funny, you know’ll.” Dead on. The movie – especially the costumes and cinematography – looks great! Can’t wait!

  3. Screenplay App says:

    Javier Bardem is a gem. This looks good.

    Good job on the voice. …sounds very Lucille Ball, and NOBODY sounded quite like Lucille Ball. Lucy sounded as unique as Davis or Hepburn.

      I thought so, too. Which is interesting you mention Hepburn… I thought Cate Blanchett’s portrayal of her in “The Aviator” was almost a parody, but she got the Oscar for it.
      So if Kidman gets critiqued and Blanchett gets praised, I give up.

    I am stoked to see this movie. Not a lot of people know that Lucille Ball truly became a trend-setter; one of the first, to integrate topics that would have otherwise been taboo in American culture at the time. Talking about divorce, independent and equal rights, integrating a multi-cultural and diverse household, etc put a LOT of assumed pressure. She also went through a lot in her personal life.

    I think this movie will really capture what was at stake, from the pressure to please the audience to the pressure from the government. However, she persevered to become an even greater trend setter in the industry. Even in 2021, I Love Lucy pleases America. I just showed my little cousin an episode and she laughed the entire time. I mean, there’s a reason why she’s referred to as the first lady of comedy

    Lucy green lit Star Trek

    Her studio, Desilu, produced it and she personally fought for it

    She changed the world more than we know. We all do

      And for those who don’t know Star Trek is apart of everyone’s daily lives, from flip phones (now outdated), electronic doors opening like at your big chain grocery store, desk top monitors/pc’s, etc…

    • Scott Gammans says:

      True story: at first, she thought it was a variety show about a troupe of actors touring the South Pacific in a USO show during WWII. _Star Trek_ … get it? Well, she eventually *did* get it (what it actually was), and when her home network CBS rejected it, she took Star Trek to NBC. And the rest, is history. (Ironic footnote: CBS now owns the entire Star Trek franchise!)

    Legit got emotional at this trailer. Nicole Kidman looks and sounds fantastic as Lucille Ball. I’ve been a Lucy superfan since I was seven so I would know. I’m sure this magnificent trailer will put to rest the “Debra Messing should’ve been cast” nonsense once and for all. So excited for December 10th!

  8. T D says:

    Lucy’s daughter said Kidman embodies her mothers spirit. I can totally see it. She’s not a complete lookalike, but man does the essence come across. That’s really impressive – far more than being a clone.

  9. Daniel J says:

    It’s not necessary for an actor to look exactly like whom they are playing. It’s about the performance. And, Kidman is a great actress.

  10. Calixto Orquiz says:

    Kidman has already blown me away! She’s has the toughness, gruffness, and intelligence of the woman that was Lucy and yet what seems a subtle genius performance by Kidman. Can’t wait❤
