Watch: Old People Sing "Let's Talk About Sex" In Trailer For 'Unfinished Song' With Terence Stamp & Gemma Arterton

Picked up very early on by The Weinstein Company and selected as the closing entry for the Toronto International Film Festival, hopes seemed to be high for "Song For Marion." A Brit dramedy about old people and singing with cantankerous Terence Stamp in the lead? It could have been a contender, we suppose, but after failing to make any impact at all, the studio is now rushing the film out into theaters in eight weeks with a brand new title.

A Song For Marion, Gemma Arterton

Picked up very early on by The Weinstein Company and selected as the closing entry for the Toronto International Film Festival, hopes seemed to be high for "Song For Marion." A Brit dramedy about old people and singing with cantankerous Terence Stamp in the lead? It could have been a contender, we suppose, but after failing to make any impact at all, the studio is now rushing the film out into theaters in eight weeks with a brand new title.

The first trailer for "Unfinished Song" has dropped and it pretty much tells you what you need to know and lays out the entire movie, more or less. If you've been itching to see old people sing Salt-n-Pepa and do the robot, then this is the movie for you. The story itself centers on a sour old man who turns to singing with the elderly community choir thanks to the persistence of the always perky Gemma Arterton. And he learns life lessons and makes friendships along the way as his cold old heart melts. Your Mom will really like this.

We didn't particularly care for the movie, but judge it for yourself on February 8th. Watch below.
