The red-band trailer for David Gordon Green’s The Sitter has gone online. As star Jonah Hill says in the intro to the trailer, “It’s the filthiest R-rated babysitter movie ever made,” and then he tells some rude children to “Try a little ‘Shut-the-Fuck-Up’ next time.” As for the trailer itself, it’s got a bunch of great jokes, and I really hope I like it more than Green’s last film, Your Highness. The guy has a talent with foul-mouthed comedy (he’s directed the majority of Eastbound and Down episodes) but with Your Highness and to a lesser extent Pineapple Express, the execution couldn’t live up to the concept. But children who act like adult ass-holes are always good for laugh and so is Hill.
Hit the jump to check out the red-band trailer. The Sitter opens December 9th.
When the world’s most irresponsible babysitter takes three of the world’s worst kids on an unforgettable overnight adventure through the streets of New York City, it’s anyone’s guess who’s going to make it home in one piece. THE SITTER is a new level of twisted and debauched hilarity from the director of Pineapple Express, starring Superbad’s Jonah Hill.
Disney’s ‘Tomorrowland’ held in first place for the three-day weekend with an estimated $32.1 million. ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ came in second with $30.3 million. ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ was down 47% in third while the ‘Poltergeist’ reboot opened as expected, in fourth place.
