First Trailer for Step Brothers Arrives, Too
In addition to a new trailer for Steve Carell's Get Smart, the first trailer for Step Brothers starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly has debuted. If you're not digging this within the first 30 seconds, just wait until the end, I'm sure you'll be laughing then. "You like guacamole?" This looks great and all, but there's one thing it's missing - Judd Apatow. I will admit I laughed quite a bit, but I also laughed during the Talladega Nights trailers (and we all know how that turned out), and this is from the same guy. I'm just not sure yet, but take a look for yourself…
Neil over at Film School Rejects reviewed the script and claims that it's it could be "another classic Ferrell movie" saying "this one has the potential to be every bit as ridiculous as Anchorman and as overwhelmingly crude as Semi-Pro…" After watching the trailer I'm just not sure it has the right touch, like any and all of Apatow's movies. I think it's time for Ferrell to move over (or join the Apatow team) and Apatow to fill in. I'm already predicting this is going to be the final non-Apatow big summer comedy.
Watch the trailer for Step Brothers:
Step Brothers is directed and co-written by Adam McKay, of Talladega Nights and Anchorman previously. Ferrell and McKay originally signed a deal with Sony to make three movies, Anchorman being the first, Talladega Nights the second, and now Step Brothers. The movie arrives in theaters this summer on July 25th.
