I don't usually do this sort of thing, but I'm making an early prediction that Roland Emmerich's10,000 B.C. will be a big-time laugh riot. Those of you who are familiar with Emmerich's output will know what I mean by that, but here's a clarification for the rest of you: Roland Emmerich's 10,000 B.C. is not a comedy. It is, however, a potentially hysterical and pre-historical action-adventure that features mammoths, sabre-toothed tigers, giant ostriches (I think), and a lead couple who look like they just fell out of the Flintstones' equivalent of Bath & Body Works. (Did they have shampoo, mousse and mascara in 10,000 B.C.?)

The thing looks a lot like the result of a conversation that began with the question "What would Apocalypto look like with Steven Strait (as D'Leh), Camilla Belle (as Evolet) and a bunch of freaky-big creatures in it?" And I'm guessing the person who posed that question is an Austrian named Harold Kloser. After composing the score for about 40 films (including Emmerich's The Day After Tomorrow), Mr. Kloser decided to write his first screenplay. And 10,000 B.C. is it. Anyway, head on over to CHUD.com for their exclusive peek at the brand-new trailer. (You really gotta see it to believe it. I kept waiting for Ringo Starr and Barbara Bach to show up!)

10,000 B.C. hits theaters on March 7, and considering that Roland Emmerich is sort of like Uwe Boll with a budget (yeah, I said it), I'm predicting that the flick turns out to be one of 2008's funniest comedies. Either way, surprisingly good or outrageously (hilariously) awful, I have to see this movie.
