Mystery of Joaquin’s Fake-or-Not Flick Solved? Plus Other Movie, TV Trailers

The well of awesome movie trailers that don’t revolve around cheesy holiday plots may be drying up, but the good news is fall TV premieres are just getting starting. Check out a few of our favorite movie trailers from this week, as well as some TV show promos we spotted during the commercial breaks.

Clip: I’m Still Here
Joaquin Phoenix, P. Diddy

Our not-so-scientific conclusion on whether this movie is for fucking real or not: After watching this clip, it seems pretty clear that Joaquin Phoenix and Casey Affleck thought it would be funny-slash-cool to combine the plot of Borat with the personality and facial hair of Zach Galifianakis to create this movie. Add a pinch of a pissy P. Diddy, and you got gold?

The Town
Ben Affleck, Jon Hamm, Rebecca Hall, Jeremy Renner

Most promising-looking thing about this film:

A) Explosions
B) Blake Lively in a corset
C) Heists with nun costumes
D) Affleck’s attempt at a Bahston accent

E) All of the above

Whitney Able, Scoot McNairy

Hey, we’re always willing to give a monster movie a chance. This one looks like it might be a bit preachy, but as long as we see some shit getting eaten, we’ll learn to deal.


Modern Family

If you didn’t crack at this, even when Sofia Vergara popped up, you obviously don’t watch the show. Or you don’t have a soul.

Replay, replay, replay…”I can’t feel my face!”
