I've seen a couple of "Cop Out" trailers out there, but this one is by far the funniest. Most likely due to all the cussing and dick jokes. Which I'm all for. I might be in the early nascent stages of my 30's, but I'm still a pubescent teen at heart. "Cop Out" stars Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan and is directed by Kevin Smith. He didn't write this one, which is why I think most of the marketing is downplaying his actual involvement in the movie. No matter who wrote this movie, I'm sure he can coax a good performance out of an actor. I've never seen something Smith hasn't written, so I'm actually curious to see if he's also grown as a director. "Cop Out" hits theaters at the end of this month.

"The Last Airbender" is coming out this year, courtesy of M. Night Shyamalan. He wrote, directed and produced this (and I'm sure he'll find a way to cast himself in a small role in it as well, that's just how he rolls. Kinda like here @ BAFW, where our parenthesized comments always run too long). It's an adaptation of a cartoon I've never seen or paid much attention to, but it can't be any worse than his last filmed offering: "The Happening". While I haven't seen that movie, I never hear anything good from anyone that has.
This ad will air during the next Super Bowl, which, I think is happening this weekend? I don't know. I don't follow the foosball. I might record the game and just watch the commercials, but it's doubtful.

"The Losers" is a DC/Vertigo comic book property that just got itself a Hollywood adaptation. The good news is, Hollywood picked a winner when it settled on "The Losers". The story is solid if I remember the comic book (of which I've only read a couple of the trade paperbacks) and from the looks of the trailer, that has translated well into the silver screen.
Quite the cast as well in this one. Zoe Saldana, just off "Star Trek" and voicing the "hot" Na'vi in James Cameron's "Avatar" is in this one. So is Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who from the trailer, might have finally found a filmed project he doesn't bite the bullet in. Or maybe not. He does spend quality time in a coffin in this movie. And, the always entertaining Chris Evans is in this.
All in all, a pretty solid trailer for a pretty solid movie I'm definitely looking out for.
