Watchin' Trailerz with Doug (Week of April 4)
The Hangover Part II
Release date: May 26, 2011
Hey tweeps! Sorry for not including this trailer last week. I know many of you (none of you) were DYING (not dying) to see it posted. You see, I write these things early on Thursday, and this thing must've been released Thursday night (dur!). Needless to say, I AM EMBARRASSED! Anywhoozers, I hope it was worth the wait!
[watching the trailer for the first time]
Crazy, Stupid, Love
Release date: July 29, 2011
As an experiment, I'm just going to type whatever thoughts pop in my head while watching this trailer. Here goes (nothing)! 0:10: Julianne Moore is way more attractive when straddled by Amanda Seyfried. 0:15: Really? 0:29: Ryan Gosling should probably be in more movies. But... not movies like this. 0:50: Is THAT why his wife cheated on him? Because he dresses like a schlub and is a middle-aged dork? No other reasons? 0:55: Makeover montage! 1:00: Do people like Ryan Gosling's character really exist? Maybe, but probably... no. 1:02: A Velcro wallet? That just seems like lazy writing. 1:20: The slow-motion post-makeover walk-in -- this trailer has it all figured out! 1:25: Marisa Tomei is having a career renaissance playing drunk sluts. 1:30: Muse! OK, this trailer just got a little better, because that song is TOIGHT. 1:37: Another wise-beyond-his-years kid giving a GROWN MAN ADVICE? Ugh. 1:48: You just knew Julianne Moore was going to show up again, but is the marriage WORTH SAVING (#deepthoughts)? 2:04: AND Kevin Bacon? Where? Oh, there -- behind that naked chick. 2:16: Emma Stone's pretty great, but she also knows she is, which kinda makes that greatness less so. BUT, Ryan Gosling is, like, cut. From marble. He's gorgeous.
Release date: June 17, 2011
This trailer isn't new (think it came out at the end of 2010), but I wanted to include it here because A.) I hadn't yet, and B.) Marvel just released a four-minute-long promotional preview, which you can view here. The footage is an abridged version of select scenes that premiered at WonderCon 2011 (I got that info from the video [I'm lazy]). HERE'S THE DEAL -- the embedded trailer (above) doesn't look all that great, IHMO (does the "H" mean "humble" or "honest"?). BUT, the extended version DOES pique my interest. MOREOVER, I know FOR A FACT it gives F This Movie! fan (and future contributor) Adam a GIANT BONER. He's likes the Green Lantern as more than a friend, if you know what I mean (you know what I mean). His e-mail address is oalantern(at)yahoo.com (as in Oa, the Green Lantern home planet [NERD ALERT!]), for chrissakes! Don't believe me? Go ahead and e-mail him! Kid won't shut up about Green Lantern. SHEESH.
