FUNNY PEOPLE RED BAND TRAILERon July 8, 2009 at 8:09 pm
I get sent news releases, trailers and photos from studios all the time and I generally do a very poor job of passing them on to you.
Part of the reason behind this is because there are a million and one movie blogs and they all tend to post the same stuff at the same time. So there's no reason Theater Hopper will ever become your exclusive outlet for this kind of thing.
The other piece of the puzzle is, frankly... a lot of the stuff I'm sent is crap. Or at least *I* think it's crap. If you'd like to see more photos, trailers and press releases from the studios here on the site, let me know. Maybe it will lead to something.
Anyway, I was just sent a trailer for a movie I am legitimately excited to see - Judd Apatow's Funny People coming out on July 31.
Be forewarned that this is the red band trailer, so the language is a little salty. But if you've seen The 40 Year-Old Virgin or Knocked Up, you're probably already on board with it.
For a little extra fun, check out some of the web sites created in support of the film - several of them featuring work from different characters in the film!
So what do you guys think? Are you interested in seeing Funny People? I think it's going to be interesting to watch Adam Sandler interact with other talented comedians. His films tend to isolate him, put the focus on him. I'm curious to see how he handles himself in an ensemble.
For me, Funny People kind of feels like the last hurrah of the blockbuster season. Yeah, yeah - I know G.I. Joe - The Rise of Cobra comes out after that. But does anyone think that counts?
