Then the full casting lists started to come out and the trailers started to drop, and I got more excited but I was trying to resist getting too excited. I hate it when you get your hopes up about a movie or an album and it falls short of your expectations.

via Scott. This looks absolutely hilarious! I haven’t seen a bad Paul Rudd movie yet (at least I think so) and Steve Carell and Zach Galifianakis are solid. Check it out!

‘Date Night’ Trailer

with 3 comments

Just saw the trailer for ‘Date Night’ and it looks hilarious! The movie stars Steve Carell, Tina Fey, James Franco, Mila Kunis and features Mark Wahlberg and Olivia Munn. Definitely some nice eye candy for everyone in this film.  

In New York City, a case of mistaken identity turns a bored married couple’s attempt at a glamorous and romantic evening into something more thrilling and dangerous.
