Trailer Attack, "I Love You, Phillip Morris," "District Nine"

July 18, 2009

Here is a trailer for the comedy I Love You, Phillip Morris starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor. And boy does it look…gay.

Or as Carrey says, “Gay, gay, gay, gay, gay.” It also happens to look pretty damn funny. This film doesn’t have a distributor for the U.S. yet, and if Bruno is getting such bad word of mouth I’m not sure how much that could hurt this film’s chances. But I hope to get to see it sometime, if anything just to see Jim Carrey in a film.

And then there’s a film I’ve been wanting to write about for a while, District 9.

What is this, an intelligent alien film? I’m sorry, I want stuff blowing up and Will Smith, please.

Peter Jackson is no slouch, and this film has a lot of positive buzz surrounding it. Alien refugees, the last survivors of their home world, have landed over South Africa to make a new home. They neither attack nor share with us their uber awesome space exploration technology, and selfishly keep their dastardly weapons to themselves. At least, that’s what some humans think.

I don’t know how much this movie will vilify humans (a tactic I’m not crazy about), but it has great potential. It comes out August 14.
