After a green-band trailer, a red-band trailer, and today another green-band trailer [via Apple], I can’t help but feel a bit let down by how Hot Tub Time Machine is looking right now. The film seems built on its funny title and cornball 80s jokes. Rob Corddry, who I usually think is funny, seems obnoxious and the only saving grace of the film may be Craig Robinson with an assist from Clark Duke. However, poor marketing doesn’t always equal out to a bad film so I’m trying to keep hope alive that HTTM has some joyful absurd humor past its title rather than noting how different the 80s were since they didn’t have e-mail and the Internet and stuff.
Hit the jump to check out the new trailer along with the official synopsis. Hot Tub Time Machine hits theaters on March 26th.
For those just tuning in, here’s the official synopsis for Hot Tub Time Machine:
HOT TUB TIME MACHINE follows a group of best friends who’ve become bored with their adult lives: Adam (John Cusack) has been dumped by his girlfriend; Lou (Rob Corddry) is a party guy who can’t find the party; Nick’s (Craig Robinson) wife controls his every move; and video game-obsessed Jacob (Clark Duke) won’t leave his basement. After a crazy night of drinking in a ski resort hot tub, the men wake up, heads pounding, in the year 1986. This is their chance to kick some past and change their futures – one will find a new love life, one will learn to stand up for himself with the ladies, one will find his mojo, and one will make sure he still exists!
