A brand-new international trailer for "I Saw the Light" offers another peek at Tom Hiddleston as legendary country singer/songwriter Hank Williams, who is known for such classic hits as "Hey Good Lookin," "Move It On Over," "Your Cheatin' Heart" and, of course, "I Saw the Light."

Chronicling the country music legend's life and career, the film also sees "Avengers" star Elizabeth Olsen as country-music vocalist and musician Audrey Mae (Sheppard) Williams, who married Hank in 1944, and a few years later gave birth to future country superstar Hank Williams Jr. But by 1952, her troubled marriage with Hank, Sr. was over, largely due to alcohol abuse and Hank's extramarital affairs on the road.

Producer-turned-filmmaker Marc Abraham (Flash of Genius) directs "I Saw the Light" from his own script, based on the 1994 book "Hank Williams: The Biography" by Colin Escott, George Merritt, and William MacEwen.

The film, which co-stars Bradley Whitford, Cherry Jones, and David Krumholtz, is set to open in theaters on March 25, 2016.
