Another day another Hollywood trailer with the White House blowing up.
Here’s a first look at Roland Emmerich’s latest movie White House Down, starring Channing ‘The Tates’ Tatum in an obligatory white action movie wife beater vest and Jamie Foxx. The plot rattles along like so:
‘Pew, pew, pew, Kablooey, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, ‘Let’s do this’, pew, pew, pew, brrraaappp, brraaapppp!’
This second trailer makes a lot more sense and gives the viewer a much better understanding of the plot…now with added Jonah Hill.
From the looks of it Jamie Foxx might just have had the entire movie stolen from him under him thanks to the talented Christoph Waltz.
Here it is, the much anticipated first trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie Django Unchained.
Starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, (who sounds very much like Werner Herzog), Leonardo DiCaprio and Don Johnson, set in the deep south in the 1800’s it tells the story of a slave freed by a German bounty hunter, who both then work together to find the slave’s missing wife who has been captured by a sadistic plantation owner. Apparently the film is peppered with cameo appearances including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Samuel L Jackson and Kurt Russell.
The title of this latest Tarantino joint might be familiar to some of you who remember a 1966 movie called simply Django which garnered cult status for many years. It starred Franco Nero as a drifter, (who carried with him a large coffin which housed an even larger gatling gun), who spent the entire film seeking revenge for the death of his wife. For those movie affeciandos out there Nero pops up in the final frame of this trailer with Jamie Foxx in what appears to be a tribute cameo from the original Django. Nice touch.
This looks like it could be the sleeper hit movie of the year. Why? Well who hasn’t at one time hated the very ground their boss has walked upon?
Starring Jason Bateman, (Juno, Arrested Development), Charlie Day, (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia) and Jason Sudeikis, (Hall Pass) as three tortured souls who hate their individual bosses, (Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell), with a passion so great it drives them to conspire their deaths and the inevitable hilarity ensues.
If you’re still unsure that Horrible Bosses could be as big a sleeper hit as The Hangover then consider this, Bunk from The Wire has a cameo role as a detective and Jamie Foxx, (Miami Vice, Ray) who plays a character called Motherf@cka Jones…sold!
