That it will be a big return for Fraser, who got the main role after almost 10 years, was indicated not only by the role of the 300-kilogram man, but also, for example, by the fact that the legendary Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan) took over the direction.

And as expected, the film received a huge ovation at the festival. The actors gave a standing ovation for six whole minutes, and there is already talk of at least an Oscar nomination. Fraser was understandably moved. He bowed down to the ground to those present, and he didn’t even hold back tears, as you can see in the video below.

Twitter was immediately flooded with emotional posts from excited fans wishing the actor well, led by his former Mummy Returns co-star Dwayne Johnson.

“God, it warms my heart to see Brendan having such success. He fully supported me when I joined The Mummy, which was the role that launched my Hollywood career. Good luck bro and congrats to Darren Aronofsky,” The Rock tweeted.

The film, for which the actor was understandably stuffed, although it is true that he has gained weight in recent years, is an adaptation of the 2012 play of the same name by Samuel D. Hunter. It’s about an obese man and his woes, including a troubled relationship with his teenage daughter (Sadie Sink). In the Czech Republic, the premiere was finally set for December 9 this year.

“It’s going to be something you’ve never seen before,” Fraser told Unilad of the film some time ago. “The costumes are extensive and cumbersome. It’s definitely miles away from anything I’ve done before. But make no mistake, I know very well that it will leave an impression,” he let himself be heard.

So Fraser’s comeback was quite successful and something tells us that this is just the beginning. In the near future, he will also be seen in Scorsese’s much-anticipated drama Killers of the Flower Moon with DiCaprio, De Niro and other stars, and last but not least in Dalibor Stach’s Czech-American drama Dimension.
