**Trailer Time**: “Crazy Stupid Love” and “Attack the Block”

7 Apr

Crazy Stupid Love

Since Steve Carell is about to wrap up his stint on The Office, chances are we will start to see his talents showing up and more and more on the big screen. He is lined up for several projects already, but the next time you will probably see him is in this summer’s Crazy Stupid Love, alongside such big names as Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. Here is the first full-length trailer for this comedy-drama:

Chris’ Take: I liked the tone of the trailer, although it looks like it has the potential to be uneven. It addressed serious relationship problems with oddball humor, yet it looks like it will take the time to actually take a good serious look at the underlying issues that lead to them. Steve Carell looks like he will be playing his normal slapstick/insecure guy, while Ryan Gosling seems to be taking a turn from his recent serious roles. Julianne Moore again shows that her roles will land all over the map, so I look forward to seeing what she will do with this one as well.

Attack the Block

One of the most talked about films from the SXSW Festival was Attack the Block, which recently picked up distribution in the U.S. This British film looks like it will take the tone of other horror comedies like Shaun of the Dead, and pit ghastly beasts against slackers and kids from South London. Besides Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul), there are no recognizable faces in this trailer, but here it is in all its glory:

Chris’ Take: With the recent influx of alien invasion films, I think this one will be a breath of fresh air because it won’t take itself that seriously, while still trying to pay homage to the genre. I think that’s what made Shaun of the Dead successful, and I think that’s why audiences at SXSW loved it.

The Hangover: Part II

I already posted this trailer last week, but thought I would share it with you guys again because the MPAA just decided, “Hey, we might have dropped the ball on this one.” Apparently, after giving this trailer their stamp of approval, they pulled it from playing during Source Code because it was deemed too offensive and vulgar. Take a look and decide for yourself:
