Intense drama, romance, horror, even documentaries are just fine. Right now, though, I'm in the mood for trailers that will make me laugh.
I've got to say I'm liking this Seth Rogen guy. 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Superbad, it's all good. I'm looking forward to Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and on a recent rewatching of Donnie Darko I realized for the first time that's Rogen playing scumbag Ricky Danforth. The red band trailer for Pineapple Express has Rogen smoking dope (big stretch, I know) and managing to be quite funny while doing so. Spider-man's James Franco is Rogen's stoner sidekick and the two find themselves on the run after witnessing a murder committed by Gary Cole. Rogen also serves as co-writer, so I've got high expectations. Erik Davis also posted some pretty good things about the trailer not long ago. By the way, if you have trouble connecting to the official SONY pictures link above like I was, you can see a grainier but more reliable version on YouTube.
What is it about someone wearing a Pablo Cruise shirt that I find so damn funny? I haven't yet had the chance to see Semi-Pro, Will Ferrell's new flick that's opening this week, but this trailer has already got me looking forward to his next effort. Step Brothers stars Ferrell and Talladega Nights co-star John C. Reilly as a pair of forty-ish slackers who not only still live with their parents, but now find themselves to be step-brothers when Ferrell's mother marries Reilly's father. Animosity soon gives way to friendship, and these two man-children are faced with having to get jobs and move out. This looks funny as hell and that July 25 release date can't come soon enough.
