Must Watch: Greg Mottola's Adventureland Red Band Trailer
Miramax has debuted a crazy red band trailer for Adventureland, the 80's coming-of-age comedy from Superbad director Greg Mottola, on IGN tonight. The funny thing is that I wasn't sure why they'd need a red band trailer for this movie at first, but obviously it's pretty self explanatory once you watch it, with text and all. It's actually a great movie, whether or not this trailer or the previous trailer does a better job of showing that. I saw this up at Sundance and thoroughly enjoyed it, so if you enjoyed this, I'd also suggest you read my review. Just don't forget to actually see this in theaters once it hits in the next month or so.
Watch the red band trailer for Adventureland:
A comedy set in the summer of 1987 and centered around a recent college grad who takes a nowhere job at his local amusement park, only to find it's the perfect course to get him prepared for the real world.
Adventureland is both written and directed by filmmaker Greg Mottola, of The Daytrippers and Superbad previously. The story is based on Mottola's own experience working at the Adventureland Amusement Park in Long Island. Miramax is debuting Adventureland in theaters everywhere on April 3rd this year.

I love the last line in the preview. It seems like it totally sums up the humor in this movie. Completely uncalled for, but still completely hilarious.

I'm there! "Don't get all drunk and fall asleep." "Why?" "Cause I'll jack-off all over your face!" classic.

hahaha i'm sure it won't be as funny as Superbad, but it looks solid. Definitely better than the greenband trailer.

I don't know about the movie but I think the trailer was great. loved the concept.

Sounds like it's going to be similar to American pie, but more vulgar, and less cheesy.. and probably less funny without Eugene Levy =P
