Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, Thor) stars in a new biopic about iconic country music singer Hank Williams' life, entitled I Saw the Light. Though the film originally had a release date set last month, we'll have to wait until 2016 to see how the film adaptation of the singer's rise to fame and fall from grace. This week, we were treated to a great first-look trailer for the film, which also stars Elizabeth Olsen. Watch this trailer and find out why this is one of the most anticipated movies of the next year.

Just as we've seen with other biopics, we're expecting a great performance from Hiddleston and the trailer certainly shows us that. Expect a story of struggles with relationships, substances and fame, which is to be expected from a country music legend, right?

We're expecting some awards season praise for the stars of this film, but we'll have to wait until next year before the awards pour in.
