The first trailer and poster for the comedy 3, 2, 1… Frankie Go Boom have landed online. Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy), Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids), and Lizzy Caplan (Party Down) star in the pic which is described as “a comedy about two brothers a girl with a broken heart, a sex tape, an angel and a pig.” Though this could very well delve into farce territory, the ridiculous situations in the trailer are actually pretty funny thanks to the innocent charm of Hunnam and overall stupidity of O’Dowd. We also get the chance to see Ron Perlman playing a transvestite, so there’s that.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Written and directed by Jordan Roberts, the film also stars Chris Noth, Whitney Cummings, and Nora Dunn. 3, 2, 1… Frankie Go Boom will be available on iTunes starting September 10th and will have a limited release on October 12th.
The full lineup for South By Southwest 2012 has been announced and for those of you not attending the festival, prepare to seethe with jealousy. The Austin, Texas festival will host screenings of the Will Ferrell Spanish-language comedy Casa de mi Padre, festival favorite The Raid, Bobcat Goldthwait’s God Bless America, and the world premiere of 21 Jump Street, which recently screened to press to overwhelmingly positive praise. Add these films to the previously announced festival opener Cabin in the Woods (from Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard), and I’m sufficiently envious of those making the trek to Austin.
Other highlights from the full lineup include the documentary The Imposter, Killer Joe, The Hunter, Lena Dunham’s Girls, and Kevin Macdonald’s doc Marley. Hit the jump to see the full list, but keep in mind that the midnight selections have yet to be announced. Collider’s own Matt Goldberg will be covering all the shenanigans from the festival, so keep an eye out for our coverage on the site. South by Southwest 2012 takes place March 9 – 17.
