Tropic Thunder

Although it is set to officially debut next Monday night, the trailer for Ben Stiller's Vietnam War epic Tropic Thunder has arrived online at the official site. This is that "controversial" movie we talked about a few days ago that had Robert Downey Jr. as a black man. You can read about that mayhem here, but I think you'd rather watch this teaser trailer. As far as I know, the full trailer may yet debut next week, but this should hold you over. If you're ready to feast your eyes on this, have at it.

This is a red band trailer which means you'll have to enter your information to verify your age to watch it. We'll update it once we have our own copy.

Watch the trailer over at: tropicthunder.com/site.php.

Unfortunately you have to watch the trailer on that site, but I guarantee you - it kicks ass! This movie is seriously looking good, and it is very rare I'd say that about a Ben Stiller movie. Once we have a better copy of the trailer we'll post it again, but enjoy this one for now!

Directed by and starring Ben Stiller and written by Etan Cohen ("King of the Hill", Idiocracy) and well-known actor Justin Theroux (who also stars in the film), Tropic Thunder arrives in theaters everywhere this summer on August 15th.

Is this riffing on Rescue Dawn or just the whole Vietnam War movie genre? I trust Ben Stiller- but it is a little out of nowhere. Robert Downey looks ... well, absolutely NOTHING like Robert Downey. I've heard they screened his performance in front of some civil rights groups or something, and apparently his full commital won their seal of approval. Mind you, he is the son of the man who made the Blaxploitation movie "Putney Swope". (Which I sincerely, sincerely hope they wind up re-making or updating... I actually know the assistant to Robert Downey Sr. and he said they're in talks w/ Dave Chappelle about remaking...)

Not watching this, was going to watch this. Not going to enter my name etc to watch a commercial. If they want me to watch their commercial they won't make me jump through hoops.

Wow, in what way does this "kick ass"? That's a really bad teaser-trailer. Dont get me wrong, i'm super psyked over this movie but na, this is not much to cheer for.

Robert Downey Jr. as a black guy. Hilarious. A little racy, hopefully it doesn't offend anyone, but hilarious. I'll wait to see an actual trailer before passing any judgment.

I'd like to watch it but as a Canadian I don't have a zip code. Can't enter one anyway because it won't work.

Robert Downey actually plays a white guy playing a black guy... so it's all good, right? Thanks for the direct link, Brad 😀 I'll have to agree, tho... that was not that great of a teaser.

Thanks Brad. Agreed though. Weak trailer. More like the teaser for the teaser.

I have to say this teaser did absolutely nothing for me in terms of raising my level of anticipation, even taking into consideration that it was a teaser it was still a weak trailer.

I am thriller that the cast is so full of funny / crazy guys. Nolte is the director in the moive, ude is NUTS, Black always funny and Downey...I just couldent stop laughing lookin at him. I think Ben Stiler may have pulled off another awesome comedy. I am really exited to see Danny McBride ( foot fist way, Hot Rod) in another film that guy is going to Blow the Fuck up just like Seth Rogan, or pehaps a new improved version of Ferrell. Anyways exited to see an actual trailer for this film.

I just saw the unrated trailer, and man... I don't know about this one: A "whacky comedy" about fighting in Vietnam? My first reaction is that it was pretty tasteless. Vic
