Summer blockbuster season is beginning to wind down a bit, but we’re still pretty amped to see what’s to come for the holiday quarter and early 2011. This week’s trailers aren’t exactly indicators of future blow-your-mind’rs, but we’re curious, at least.
It’s Kind of a Funny Story
Zach Galifianakis, Emma Roberts, Lauren Graham
The trailer came out earlier this summer, but clips of this movie, Zach Galifianakis’s first big-budget attempt to take a detour toward “serious” roles, have been rolling out lately. He plays a guy in a mental ward who “guides” a young squire through mental rehabilitation. If Zach’s twin brother Seth shines through in Zach’s performance at all, it’s sure to be a winner.
In theaters Oct. 8
Decade of Disturbed
Directed by Rafa Alcantara
Just a few words for you: Oh-wa-ah-ah-ah!
Out on DVD now
Directed by Asif Kapadia
The Japanese trailer for the upcoming documentary about Ayrton Senna, arguably one of the best Formula One race drivers in history, was leaked yesterday. If you’re in the dark about Senna, do your research here first, then watch this trailer again. We’ll be waiting outside the theater when this comes out to make record of all of the girly men who leave the theater with waterworks.
In theaters late 2010
Mickey Rourke, 50 Cent, Jason Statham, Ray Liotta
So this trailer is mirrored (a copyright loophole for leaking videos online or on YouTube) and the English is dubbed out, but you can tell there’s potential for both major asskicking and major suckery. Hopefully Fiddy tuned down the natural crazy in him for this role–who the hell gave that guy a gun?
In theaters TBA
The Virginity Hit
Produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay
Just what we need! Another g’damn movie about some horny teen boys trying to lose their virginity! Thank you, sweet Jesus!
OK, OK, but what you didn’t know about this mockumentary-style teencom? It was produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay (of Funny or Die and every other Will Ferrell project ever). The trailers aren’t all that impressive, but this restricted clip shows we might not be able to judge this young adult novel by its tween cover.
In theaters Sept. 10
