This Week In Movie Trailers, You Guys
It’s been a couple weeks since we’ve had a proper trailer round up because there has been a bit of a trailer shortage this month. But when it rains trailers it pours trailers? I don’t know. Trailers, what do you want from me? I mean besides trailers. I know you want those and I am giving them to you. Hold on, I’m just going to drag this paragraph out for 10,000 more words. JK.
Holy moly. My favorite thing about this trailer is how when it went around this week all of the headlines were like VINCE VAUGHN AND OWEN WILSON REUNITE FOR NEW COMEDY and it’s like, OK, well, I actually like both of those guys and I like comedy, but maybe a reunion just for the sake of a reunion is not amazing news. Because this movie looks, how do you say, BUNK?
The Company You Keep
I don’t know, man. A semi-thriller about the Weather Underground? I feel like maybe that shit would have flown in the ’90s. That shit feels real ’90s to me. These are all good actors, though, right? Did you see the screen at the end of the trailer that was like “We know this movie looks super ’90s and the Weather Underground in 2013 doesn’t hold a lot of water but perhaps this list of our actors’ achievements will change your mind? Because trust us, it is a lot of achievements.”
This movie is going to be called Two Mothers in America, but is being called Perfect Mothers in France, in the grand tradition that made The Hangover into Very Bad Trip and Can’t Hardly Wait into Big Party. It’s a bit of a tell, but when the trailer started with the French name attached I was like ‘I BET THEY AREN’T SO PERFECT AS YOU THINK!’ Because I’m smart. Also very pro-Robin Wright these days. House of Cards, son.
Remember how fun and original and delightful Monsters Inc. was? Yeah, me too. Good times. Gone times.
It’s A Disaster
Seeking a Brunch at the End of the World. Alternatively: Seth and Jay Versus the Brunchpocalypse. That’s it for now. That’s as many as we can do for now. But something tells me we might be able to do more as this trend continues. (This looks good, though. #Cute.)
About Last Night
GUYS, THIS ALMOST GOES WITHOUT SAYING, BUT NEVER TELL A WOMAN YOU LOVE HER FIRST. AND LADIES, IF YOU TELL A GUY YOU LOVE HIM BEFORE HE SAYS IT TO YOU, MOVE TO ANOTHER CITY. OTHERWISE LET’S ALL ENJOY THIS ENTIRE YEAR OF ALMOST CRAZY ANTICIPATION FOR THIS MOVIE, SEEMS LIKE JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF LEAD UP TIME TO BUILD US TO AN IMPOSSIBLE FRENZY.
