If you enjoyed the five clips from director John Hillcoat’s Lawless we posted earlier today, you’re going to love this new red-band trailer. It features good old-fashioned tar and feathering, blood-letting, shoot ‘em ups and even an imposing dust storm. That all fits right at home in the Depression-era drama that follows the bootlegging Bondurant family in their backlash against the law enforcement officials who are trying to taking a cut of the profits.
Lawless, starring Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, Guy Pearce and Gary Oldman, opens August 31st. Hit the jump to check out the red-band trailer.
Let’s make something very clear up front: this trailer for Klown (Klovn) is the definition of “not safe/suitable for work” so don’t even think about watching it in your cubicle unless you’ve already put in your two weeks notice. Directed by Mikkel Norgaard and starring Frank Hvam, Casper Christensen and Marcuz Jess Petersen, Klown follows a male-bonding vacation between two friends that is deemed by them to be a “Tour de Pussy.” Complicating matters is Frank’s (Hvam) kidnapping of his pregnant girlfriend’s 12-year-old nephew to accompany them on their debaucherous trip so he can prove his parenting skills. HBO’s Eastbound & Down star, Danny McBride, is set to write and star in the remake of the Danish project and I can definitely see why he is a perfect fit. This new red-band trailer highlights the strange friendship between Frank and Casper and a woman who, literally, gets stuck in between them (the 12-year-old is left out due to decency/legal reasons). Klown will be released in theaters and VOD/digital platforms on July 27th. Hit the jump to check out the trailer which, once again, is super NSFW. You’ve been warned.
A new “red-band TV spot” for The Sitter has gone online. I put “red-band TV spot” in quotations because A) It doesn’t have a red-band because it wasn’t rated by the MPAA, and B) this will probably never air on television. It’s more of a short, internet-only ad filled with swearing. Now that I’ve made a pointless semantic argument, I should mention that the commercial is pretty funny and I’m really hoping that director David Gordon Green finally delivers a comedy that lives up to the marketing (Pineapple Express and Your Highness both fell short for me).
Hit the jump to check out the “Red-Band TV Spot”. The Sitter stars Jonah Hill, Ari Graynor, J.B. Smoove, and Sam Rockwell. The film opens November 9th.
UPDATE: Steve here. We’ve been informed that the spot aired during the Charlie Sheen roast last night.
A new red-band trailer for Kick-Ass has come online and it shows off the delightful insanity folks are talking about when they mention Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming superhero action flick. The film centers on regular people who dress up in costumes and fight crime and make a bloody, highly-entertaining mess of things.
While she’s a supporting character, it’s clear the film is going to get a lot of mileage selling Chloe Moretz as the 11-year-old “Hit-Girl” who, as seen in this trailer, tears shit up. I don’t want to spoil anything because it’s just looks so damn awesome. Hit the jump, check it out (plus a synopsis), and remember that the film hits theaters on April 16, 2010.
Funny or Die has debuted the red band trailer for Miguel Arteta’s upcoming comedy Youth in Revolt starring Michael Cera. I know it’s a red band trailer because there’s an R-rated joke every ten seconds or so. They’re not bad but I don’t need this movie to be filthy to enjoy it. I’m already pretty excited for the flick especially since I’ve heard highly positive things about it from those who have seen it (including Steve who thought it was great). For those who don’t know, the movie is about Nick Twisp (Cera), an 18-year old high school student who goes on a quest to lose his virginity after his parent’s breakup. He does this by creating a “supplementary persona” named Francois Dillinger who can inspire the bad-ass behavior Nick needs to win his dream girl.
Check out the red band trailer after the jump along with a brief synopsis. The film co-stars Zach Galifianakis, Steve Buscemi, Fred Willard, Ray Liotta, Jean Smart, Justin Long, and newcomer Portia Doubleday. Youth in Revolt hits theaters on January 8, 2010.
I didn’t hear a lot of buzz out of Comic-Con for “Legion” which was a little strange considering it had a pretty neat premise: Paul Bettany plays a fallen angel who attempts to save humanity from all the other angels attempting to exterminate humanity. Read about my disappointment and see the trailer after the jump.
