The trailer for Dolphin Tale – based on the true story of Winter the dolphin, who lost her tail and got a prosthetic one – is like an emotional assault. You start with Morgan Freeman, and we’re already vulnerable. Then there’s a dolphin, one of the most beloved creatures on the planet. Then the sensitive, soft-voiced Harry Connick Jr. A teary-eyed Ashley Judd. I assume a wounded soldier. Bad weather. A crying child. A grisly but tender Kris Kristofferson. The flashing of the words “From the studio and producers of The Blind Side.” And finally, a boy hugging a dolphin. Watch it below.
