Quick: name me one movie that had absolutely zero actors/actresses you recognized that turned out to be hilarious, or just plain amazing. Can you do it? The first movie that popped into my head was a little film called Sex Drive, which featured all no-name (at the time, and I think still to this day) main characters, but did feature a Seth Green cameo at the end. The movie itself was absolutely hilarious, and I remember seeing the trailer months beforehand thinking that it had potential. While most of those types of movies don’t pan out, Let’s Be Cops, which is slated to hit theaters this summer on August 13th, looks like yet another rare diamond in the rough. Check out the official red band trailer for Let’s Be Cops above, then hit the jump below for more slightly qualified thoughts!
What will you be doing eleven days from now? In just about a week and a half, a new high school comedy (yes, another one) will be hitting movie theaters, and just might turn out to be one of those diamonds in the rough. The flick is called “The Secret Lives of Dorks”, and while you’ll probably have to Google the main cast, it does feature Jennifer Tilly, Mike Ditka (da Bears!), and the Jim Belushi. I will tell you this: if you put a Belushi in a comedy film, I will seriously consider throwing down a few Lincolns at the theater to watch it on the big screen. On top of that, and probably more importantly, the trailer actually made me laugh. Enjoy the trailer, and hit the link below for our slightly qualified reaction and comments below!
Is it December yet? Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is the long-awaited and anticipated sequel to in my opinion, Will Ferrell’s best film as a leading role, and this December the entire Channel 4 news team will finally land in theaters in what will surely find epic box office success. All of your favorites are back: Steve Carell as Brick Tamland (“Brick, are you inviting me to a party in your pants?”), street reporter Brian Fantana played by Paul Rudd, Champ “Whammy” Kind, and even Miss Veronica Corningstone and the wheel-of-cheese eating, Spanish-speaking dog, Baxter. I think it’s safe to expect a truckload of big-time celebrity cameos as well, although I don’t know if anything can top the original, news team, back-alley brawl to the death; I guarantee they’ll try though! The official trailer is above, and it does not disappoint; this is Will Ferrell in his prime!
Adam Sandler movies will never get old; they may not be as funny as his Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison days, but they will sure sell tickets. Grown Ups was a nice surprise when it hit theaters three years ago, but Sandler brought all of his star power buddies with him for that one; then again, he pretty much does that with every film, doesn’t he? We’re not complaining. Well on July 12th Sandler & Co are back on the big screen for the Grown Ups sequel, Grown Ups 2; while I’m sure it will sell well, how will it rank amongst the towering stack of other Grade A comedies getting released this summer, like The Internship, or This Is The End? 2013 is one of the best looking years for comedies in years; label me excited!
On August 9th, rising comedic star Jason Sudeikis will attempt to deliver hundreds of pounds of marijuana across the US-Mexico border for fellow comedian turned billionaire Ed Helms. The movie is called, We’re the Millers, and it also stars Jennifer Aniston who plays a stripper, who goes on to pretend to be Jason’s, err, Mr. Miller’s wife. I’m a big Sudeikis fan, as he’s been one of the few truly funny actors/comedians on SNL over the last few years, but the real steal of the show might just be his fake son, Will Poulter, who looks familiar, but after looking through his IMDB profile I still have no idea where I recognize him from. The end of this trailer is awesome, and this movie looks like it will be a great one!
If I could Fandango me some tickets to this tonight, I would. In other words, on June 7th, your butt had best be planted in your local theater’s seats to watch the premiere of The Internship, starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. You know how some times you watch a trailer and absolutely know that the movie will follow through and rock once you finally do see it? Taken was like that for me (and probably all of America), and The Internship gave me that same feeling: this movie is going to be awesome.
All my X-Men fans will really appreciate the trailer as well!
