Worth Watching - Aug 3: New Trailer for Andrew Fleming's Hamlet 2

Focus Features has released another trailer for Hamlet 2, due out later this month. I'm not sure whether I'm a fan of this new trailer, but considering we haven't featured a trailer for Hamlet 2 since April when the red band one came out, I think it's worth mentioning. If you're still skeptical about this film, all of the quotes in the trailer are from legitamate sources - most of them loved it, a few hated it, but overall it had a generally positive response at Sundance. In fact, it actually has 100% on Rotten Tomatoes at the moment, which is quite a good sign that this isn't as stupid as the trailer makes it look. This movie is funny as hell and quirky, but one of my favorite comedies this year - so please give it a chance!
