War is hell, but even hell must enjoy some gallows humor now and then. Tina Fey plays a journalist sent on assignment to Kabul in the dark comedy "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot," which is based on Kim Barker's memoir, "The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days In Afghanistan And Pakistan." Paramount just dropped the first trailer, featuring Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, Alfred Molina, and Billy Bob Thornton.

"For me to get to do a movie where I fly in helicopters and shoot guns and run from explosions, that's a treat," Tina Fey told USA Today. "I don't get to do any of those things on a daily basis." The trailer gives a glimpse of the lighter side of life in the region, including a term Tina called "Kabul cute," which is "the idea when a regular normal-looking woman goes into a place where there aren't very many women. She becomes a real object of desire in a way that is hopefully comical."

Margot Robbie's character, another reporter named Tanya, tells Tina's Kim that in New York she would be like a 6 or a 7, but in Kabul she's "a serious piece of ass" -- like a 9 or a borderline 10. So Kim asks Tanya, "What are you like here, a 15?" Tanya replies, deadpan, "Yeah." Ah, the important questions in wartime!
