The First Full Trailer for Feud: Bette and Joan Has Arrived

The first full trailer for the highly anticipated Feud: Bette and Joan have landed, with Oscar winners Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon playing the legendary Hollywood actresses Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. The divas costarred together in 1962’s What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? However, the pair didn’t share any mutual admiration towards each other.

Olivia de Havilland (Catherine Zeta-Jones) puts it perfectly in the trailer, “for over half a century, they hated each other…. and we loved them for it.”

Ryan Murphys Anthology Feud: Bette and Joan chronicle the on-set battles that raged between Davis and Crawford during the filming of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane. The pair played dirty leaking unflattering information to the gossip columns, and during the filming of one scene, Davis takes a swift kick at Crawford’s head, but Davis insists (“I barely touched her”). Not only do we get so see the feud unfold, but we also get a glimpse of the sexism and ageism the pair also faced throughout their careers and being told by studio executives they are getting “a little long tooth.”
