Oprah Winfrey and Helen Mirren

The trailer is out for The Hundred-Foot Journey, which stars Helen Mirren as Madame Mallory, the owner of a swanky French restaurant. Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg joined forces to produce the film, which is an adaptation of a bestselling novel of the same name. Winfrey's involvement in the project comes as no surprise as she listed the novel as a "favourite summer read" in a 2010 issue of O Magazine. Spielberg directed Winfrey in her film debut The Color Purple; she earned her an Oscar nod. 

"From the moment I read the script, I knew that this was a piece of work that I wanted to be associated with," Winfrey saidwith Yahoo Movies, emphasizing that she wants to tell stories "in such a way that you open the heart space and allow the viewer to see that we are all more alike than we are different." 

In the case of The Hundred-Foot Journey, viewers -- and the characters themselves --  will presumably realize that Madame Mallory and an immigrant family from India who move near her restaurant have more in common than they realize. The family plans to open an authentic Indian restaurant, which does not sit well with the ultra-competitive Mallory.

The Hundred-Foot Journey will open in theatres August 8.
