It’s been a couple weeks since we’ve had a proper trailer round up because there has been a bit of a trailer shortage this month. But when it rains trailers it pours trailers? I don’t know. Trailers, what do you want from me? I mean besides trailers. I know you want those and I am giving them to you. Hold on, I’m just going to drag this paragraph out for 10,000 more words. JK.

The Internship

Holy moly. My favorite thing about this trailer is how when it went around this week all of the headlines were like VINCE VAUGHN AND OWEN WILSON REUNITE FOR NEW COMEDY and it’s like, OK, well, I actually like both of those guys and I like comedy, but maybe a reunion just for the sake of a reunion is not amazing news. Because this movie looks, how do you say, BUNK?

The Company You Keep

I don’t know, man. A semi-thriller about the Weather Underground? I feel like maybe that shit would have flown in the ’90s. That shit feels real ’90s to me. These are all good actors, though, right? Did you see the screen at the end of the trailer that was like “We know this movie looks super ’90s and the Weather Underground in 2013 doesn’t hold a lot of water but perhaps this list of our actors’ achievements will change your mind? Because trust us, it is a lot of achievements.”

Two Mothers

This movie is going to be called Two Mothers in America, but is being called Perfect Mothers in France, in the grand tradition that made The Hangover into Very Bad Trip and Can’t Hardly Wait into Big Party. It’s a bit of a tell, but when the trailer started with the French name attached I was like ‘I BET THEY AREN’T SO PERFECT AS YOU THINK!’ Because I’m smart. Also very pro-Robin Wright these days. House of Cards, son.

Monsters University

Remember how fun and original and delightful Monsters Inc. was? Yeah, me too. Good times. Gone times.

It’s A Disaster

Seeking a Brunch at the End of the World. Alternatively: Seth and Jay Versus the Brunchpocalypse. That’s it for now. That’s as many as we can do for now. But something tells me we might be able to do more as this trend continues. (This looks good, though. #Cute.)

About Last Night

GUYS, THIS ALMOST GOES WITHOUT SAYING, BUT NEVER TELL A WOMAN YOU LOVE HER FIRST. AND LADIES, IF YOU TELL A GUY YOU LOVE HIM BEFORE HE SAYS IT TO YOU, MOVE TO ANOTHER CITY. OTHERWISE LET’S ALL ENJOY THIS ENTIRE YEAR OF ALMOST CRAZY ANTICIPATION FOR THIS MOVIE, SEEMS LIKE JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF LEAD UP TIME TO BUILD US TO AN IMPOSSIBLE FRENZY.

  1. That’s why I never love anyone. That, and my frozen cyborg heart.

  2. “I resent the comparison to The Internship”

  3. The French title for Two Mothers should have been “Cougar Town.”

  4. I don’t know. The idea of Billy Crystal playing a college student is pretty funny.

  5. The Internship is like Old School Part 2: The Internship. Meaning, come on, I’ll see it at some point.
    Two Mothers? More like Two MILFs, amirite? More Two MIDF (mom i did f–). gross.
    MONSTERS UNIVERSITY IS GONNA BE THE GREATEST EVERRRRRRRRR except I’ll have to wait until it comes out on Amazon Prime because, guys, I don’t see kids’ movies in the theaters because I have a cold heart when it comes to other people’s children.
    It’s a Disaster looks kinda bad to me…I saw Seeking a Friend for the End of the World and it was as depressing as I expected it to be so maybe this one will be funny but still. bummer.

    • Let’s talk about movies that came out a very long time ago! I also saw Seeking a Friend, and I don’t know why I thought it would be more lighthearted, but ug it was not. I watched it while folding my laundry and by the end I just wanted to suffocate myself with one of my socks. Get these quirky-but-ultimately-very-sad movies out of my comedy section!

      • Seriously. Dark comedies need to be funny and turns out nothing is funny about the end of the world. All the stuff where they were all doing heroin and giving alcohol to the children was supposed to be funny, i think? but I just got SOOO depressed about the whole thing.

        • That’s kind of like in “On the Beach” (the book, or possibly also the movie, which I haven’t seen), when they’re at the auto races and everyone is driving balls-out and dying in wrecks because they’re going to die soon anyway. I mean, it sounds kind of cool, but it’s really pretty sad and depressing. Pretty much like the whole book.

  6. I think I’ve already seen Two Mothers

  7. A movie about two old favorites whose old school (!) methods fail to impress current audiences played by two old favorites whose old school (!!) methods fail to impress current audiences.

  8. Wasn’t the premise of Google: The Movie a plot on Friends? Best bit of that trailer is when a young guy manages to trick the old guys by referencing a hip and up-to-date comic book character…. who was invented before either of them were born. And would almost definitely have figured in to their own childhoods.

  9. I don’t care that Shia LaBoeuf one looks 90s-esque. Sam Elliott is in it so my butt will be a in a theater seat for it.

  10. ugh, that “pound me” guy with the glasses in the internship trailer makes me so angry, you guys. and yes, the movie looks dumb, obviously. even though eric andre is in it (i think?) and he is the best. (also aasif mandvi!)
