Magnolia Pictures has released the trailer for a new drama thriller with Orlando Bloom called The Good Doctor. Bloom plays a creepy ass doctor with some serious self-esteem issues. It's definitely a different role from anything we've seen him in before. It's still hard for me to watch him in films where he's not holding a sword.
Here's the Synopsis:
Martin Blake (Orlando Bloom) is an ambitious but anxious young doctor, eager to impress his superiors and colleagues: Chief Resident Waylans (Rob Morrow), self-assured fellow intern Dan (Troy Garity) and no-nonsense nurse Theresa (Taraji P. Henson). But things are not going Martin's way and he can't seem to shake off his insecurities. When 18-year-old patient Diane (Riley Keough) is admitted for a kidney infection, Martin steps in, getting the much-needed boost of self-esteem he craves. But things take a dark turn as his enthusiasm begins to become an obsession.
The movie was directed by Lance Daly, and also stars Riley Keough, Rob Morrow, Taraji P. Henson, and Michael Peña. The film hits theaters on August 31st, 2012. Check out the trailer below.
