You know that feeling you get when you could swear you've experienced something before? The cluster of trailers I'm looking at this week had a striking sense of familiarity about them. It's Deja Vu week on Trailer Park.
Wait I've seen that kid before, haven't I? Yeah, he's in that movie about the school for wizards that's making money faster than the U.S. mint can print it. Indeed that's Daniel Radcliffe, and the fact that I've never seen him in anything other than the Harry Potter films is enough to make me want to see this. Kim Voynar first posted about Radcliffe taking on this film back in November of 2005. I had hoped to see him doing something completely different, but he's playing yet another orphan here, one of four who are taking a seaside holiday in late 1960s Australia. When a rumor starts circulating that one of the nearby residents is interested in adopting one of them, tension builds between the four friends. This looks to have quite a bit of promise and I wouldn't be surprised if this was indeed a breakout role for Radcliffe.
Jerry Seinfeld as a bee? I've seen this trailer before haven't I? No, guess not. They were pushing this movie even before they had any animation footage to show off, so my sense of familiarity springs from this being the fourth trailer for Bee Movie. This one gives more plot details than previous ones, with Seinfeld's character Barry B. Benson being outraged to learn that humans are eating the honey that he and his fellow bees have toiled so long to make. Following the only course of action available to him, he decides to sue. Originally, I wasn't crazy about the character design on Barry, but its starting to grow on me, and it's both weird and cool how you can see Seinfeld's facial expressions through the CGI. We hear more from Renee Zellweger's character, and Patrick Warburton proves once again that he's one of the busiest (and funniest) voice actors in modern animation. Here's Erik's take on the new trailer. Have a look for yourself:
