Must Watch: Red Band Hamlet 2 Trailer!

Hamlet 2 Trailer

You need to watch this trailer. Not only was Hamlet 2 a late addition to the Sundance line-up that still sold for $10 million - the biggest sale of this year - but I loved the movie! You have to understand, it was co-written by Pam Brady - who wrote Hot Rod and Team America: World Police and is one of "South Park's" big writers. It's some pretty brash humor but that's what makes it brilliant. It makes more fun of thespians and the film industry than almost any other movie ever made (and most of the good lines aren't even in the trailer). And even Steve Coogan is awesome! I can't suggest this enough - some of you will love it, some will hate, but that's what makes it unique!

I never did write a review for this, but I saw it late in the festival and laughed my ass off the entire time. I know a lot of (snobby) critics who hated it, absolutely hated it. But I thought it was as funny as any "South Park" episode, so give it a chance if you can laugh at that kind of humor.

Watch the red band trailer for Hamlet 2:

    I'm not getting any sound, and the trailer freezes every 6 seconds. Am I the only one?

    Wow! That was one of the funniest things I have ever seen! Can't wait. What was with the Elisabeth Shue thing though?
  • http://www.firstshowing.net Alex Billington
    So Elizabeth Shue is one of Dana Marschz' (Coogan) favorite actors and he meets her randomly at a hospital because she's a nurse and goes head over heels... So he asks her to come down and give a presentation to his class and becomes friends with her. It's actually great and she's still gorgeous for being 44!

    I was the same way.. if you have a chance to catch this early at some festival or venue before its release... GO... cause then you will be like me and telling all your friends about it.. Truly one of the best comedies I have seen in a while... Still pissed that I got F'in tar (don't ask) on my "Rock Me Sexy Jesus" T-Shirt that I got from ShoWest... AHHHH

    I thought i was the only one who cursed at staring cats! Plus its nice to see Elizabeth Shue still holding up so well since I first thought she was hot in Advetures in Babysitting.

    I have never laughed so hard at a trailer. I cannot wait to see this movie. It looks bloody hilarious!!
  • Mark
    Ooooh, Coogan's American accent sucks hard. That's going to be way distracting.
  • Jon
    What do you mean by "even Steve Coogan is awesome"? Since when would he not be awesome? Try watching some "I'm Alan Partridge" and then come back to me about that.
