Trailer Of The Week - Week #26

With comic book movies still being churned out at a ridiculous rate, it can be difficult to get excited about the latest offering nowadays. Such was our feeling when The Green Hornet was announced - a film fronted by a man best known for his stoner-comedy, rather than being a superhero. But this week saw the release of the trailer for Seth Rogen's latest and with a pumping soundtrack and the promise of some genuine buddy comedy to go with the action, things are starting to look up. We're not sure this eradicates all of the doubts around Rogen and some of the jokes have been done many times before (are we really doing the 'shooting yourself in the face' gag again?) but there's enough here to hint that this might be promising after all.

Trailer Of The Week is a regular Film Intel feature which picks a different tasty trailer of delectable goodness every week and presents it on Sunday for your viewing pleasure. Sometimes old, sometimes new, sometimes major, sometimes independent, sometimes brilliant, sometimes a load of old bobbins: always guaranteed to entertain.

  1. It looks average, to my mind. But damn. Christoph Waltz is in the film! I'll definitely watch it because of this genius.

  2. Looks pretty good I reckon.

  3. I really hope Waltz doesn't get typecastnas the villain.

  4. Lesya - A good point, hopefully he'll pull it up a bit.

    Ricky - I'm remaining more sceptical than optimistic but at least it looks more and more likely that it'll tick the 'fun' box.

    Simon - I agree with that. I think he can perhaps get away with one more but then he definitely needs a change.
