trailer park thursday. 3.5.09

Trailer Park Thursday is finally back, and now that we are getting a bit deeper into ’09 some promising trailers are finally arriving. I really enjoy this week’s trailers, I could have included even more but time didn’t allow it.


Public Enemies

Who’s Involved?:

Writers: Ronan Bennett & Ann Biderman

Director: Michael Mann

Cast: Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Billy Crudup, Marion Cotillard

What is it?: Based on the true story of the Feds going to war against John Dillinger and his colleagues.

Why I’m Interested: Based on the information I’ve already given you above, I’d have to find a damn good reason not to see it.


(500) Days of Summer

Who’s Involved?:

Director: Marc Webb

Writer: Scott Neustadter, Michael H. Weber

Cast: Zooey Deschanel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt

What is it?: Boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl against girl’s clear warnings, girl does exactly what she promised and dumps boy. We’ve all been there, maybe even on both sides (changing the sexes where necessary), at least I know I have.

Why I’m Interested: I was interested in this one as soon as the teaser trailer went up. Now that the full trailer is up my interest has grown significantly. I’m really looking forward to this one.


Terminator Salvation

Writers: See here

Director: McG

Cast: Christian Bale, Bryce Dallas Howard, Anton Yelchin, Sam Worthington, Moon Bloodgood, Common, Helena Bonham Carter

What is it?: The newest of the Terminator films, also an attempt to reboot the franchise.

Why I’m Interested: I’ve never been much of a Terminator fan, but this looks pretty freaking good.


Funny People

Writers: Judd Apatow

Director: Judd Apatow

Cast: Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann, Eric Bana, Jonah Hill, Jason Schwartzman

What is it?: The latest Judd Apatow creation.

Why I’m Interested: I’ve been hearing about this one for a long time, I’ve seen it referred to as year’s most anticipated comedy on more than once occasion. After seeing the trailer, I tend to agree. It looks like Judd and the gang have dialed it down a notch, but without losing the heart that characterizes Apatow’s previous writing/directing efforts. Hopefully we’ll get Punch-Drunk Love Adam Sandler, and not the You Don’t Mess with the Zohan version.
