Sometimes it's easy to forget that this year brings a long overdue "Dumb and Dumber" sequel (titled, appropriately, "Dumb and Dumber To"), 20 years after the original. But in case this had slipped your mind, Universal has debuted a pair of teaser posters that, in the words of Vulture, are "pretty perfect."
Both posters feature a simple image: one of the garish tuxedoes that Lloyd (Jim Carrey) and Harry (Jeff Daniels) wore in the first movie, quite memorably. The posters are accompanied by two wonderfully chosen words: "Dumbing Soon." Yes.
According to the official plot synopsis, it features the two idiots looking for their long lost children "in the hope of gaining a new kidney." So it will maintain the road trip movie feel of the first film, with a whole bunch of additional nuttiness. Original writer/directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly are back (along with about sixteen other writers, who had a hand in the screenplay at various stages), and new cast members Kathleen Turner, Jennifer Lawrence (!), Rob Riggle, and Laurie Holden join the boys on their quest.
Maybe the most exciting creative component of "Dumb and Dumber To" is the score, written by brilliant Australian electro-pop outfit Empire of the Sun. Lord only knows what they'll come up with.
The movie, which will hopefully wash away any memory of rancid, Carrey-and-Daniels-free "Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd," opens everywhere on November 14.
