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.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Sitter:
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.
