Two trailers this week because … why not?
First up, “The Watch,” starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Jonah Hill.
When I first heard about this movie and saw the teaser, I thought it might be ok. These guys have been funny in the past and and thought of them as suburbanites who took their duty as neighborhood watchman too serious seemed like a harmless premise.
Then, the full trailer was released. ALIENS! Seriously Hollywood?! Adding aliens to your movie does not make it better! This movie just went from mediocre to not-in-a-million-years.
Next up, “Hit and Run,” starring Dax Shepard, Bradley Cooper, and Kristen Bell.
I can already tell that this is one of those movies that I’m going to be really excited about seeing and then be really disappointed by. It’s from the producer of “Wedding Crashers” and Bradley Cooper is in in but it’s coming out Aug. 24. This is also known as the “dump the crap” time of year.
It could be funny and the trailer promises lots of action and car chases so I’ll probably still go see it.
