Fake Movie Friday – Q&A UPDATED!

This is my take on the “I’m obsessed with you, and someones gonna die” film.  It will be directed by David Slade.

The film opens with Aaron Mitchell and his wife Rachel getting ready in the morning.  They have a huge house and lots of waitstaff.  They live in the Hollywood Hills.  Aaron is played by Adrien Brody, and Rachel by Kate Beckinsale.  They get into a limo and head to the airport where a small plane is waiting for them.  Aaron’s agent, Frank Bradley, played by Giovanni Ribisi asks him why Aaron even still bothers going to these things, and Aaron says he likes being accessible to the fans.  They deserve it.  Frank replies “Yea right” and just like that the pilot takes off and tells them they will be landing in San Diego in a little over an hour.

How To Do A Trailer Wrong: High School (Red Band)

This is a bad trailer.

Practically the entire first act of the film is included here. Your stoner comedy shouldn’t have a plot that needs this much set up in the trailer.
The Michael Chiklis dressed/talking weird jokes fall flat, which only softens the Adrien Brody is also dressed/talking weird jokes. A movie with a unknown lead such as this one needs to use these familiar faces as enticement. Even if their roles are small the peeks need to make you say “Oh wow, thats (blank).” Both their character’s scenes are forgettable. Even if you found ‘The Hangover’ to be terrible (we did), I’m sure you remember the Tyson reveal in the trailer.

Also this trailer includes unexplained nudity. At least give a joke to go with it. Even if it’s a punchline from another scene, it would have a made it a less awkward moment. Also, when was the last time a crazy skateboard trick was ever used in trailer to make a movie seem hip? The answer is most definitely prior to 2004.

In the spirit of Movie Movie, this movie seems like someone saw ‘Orange County’ and ‘Pineapple Express’ then an equal sign hovered over their head.
