Observe and Report Red Band Trailer

We've been waiting for this one! Observe and Report is the follow-up film from up-and-coming filmmaker Jody Hill, who broke out with The Foot Fist Way a few years ago. Seth Rogen stars as Forest Ridge Mall's head of security and things get a little out of hand when a flasher invades. Warner Brothers has officially debuted the red band trailer for Observe and Report and it's as hilarious as we were expecting. Screw those other movies like Land of the Lost, this is the big 2009 comedy that we're actually looking forward to seeing! In fact, this looks so damn good, that dare I say it could be a new comedy classic?!

Watch the red band trailer for Observe and Report:

[flv: 598 258]

At the Forest Ridge Mall, head of security Ronnie Barnhardt patrols his jurisdiction with an iron fist, combating skateboarders, shoplifters and the occasional unruly customer while dreaming of the day when he can swap his flashlight for a badge and a gun. His delusions of grandeur are put to the test when the mall is struck by a flasher. Driven to protect and serve the mall and its patrons, Ronnie seizes the opportunity to showcase his law enforcement talents on a grand scale, hoping his solution of this crime will earn a coveted spot at the police academy and the heart of his dream girl Brandi.

Observe and Report is both written and directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Jody Hill, of only The Foot Fist Way previously. The film was shot on location at the Winrock Mall in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Warner Brothers will debut Observe and Report in theaters everywhere on April 10th, 2009.

HAHAHAH no shit? Winrock Mall is completely dead and empty for the past 5 years, perfect set for a movie I guess, now I have to watch this for sure. Oh I'm from Albuquerque obviously. Dammit if I had know they were here Id have went over there and stalked them haha. This actually does look funny, I think Seth Rogen is great, the dude is just hilarious no matter what, and how does he have so many different looks, yet always look the same? haha.

Dave on Feb 6, 2009


This is quite possibly the only Seth Rogen trailer I didn't even crack a fucking smile at.

Fuelbot on Feb 6, 2009

Scott McHenry on Feb 6, 2009

sorr on Feb 6, 2009


I think the trailer was all I needed to see. ๐Ÿ™‚

Eman on Feb 6, 2009


Awesome....Paul Blart....the rated R addition. God knows we've all been screamin' for that...

Somnambulist on Feb 6, 2009


fuck YEAH! this trailer did NOT disapoint!

-Peter- on Feb 6, 2009


That was incredibly unfunny.

John on Feb 6, 2009

Itri on Feb 6, 2009


It looks good but dont fuck with Land of Lost ....

Diego on Feb 6, 2009



xerxex on Feb 6, 2009


This is going to very good. Man, it reminds me of "Paul Blart: Mall cop", but this is definitely better. Seth Rogen and Anna Farris together, this will be interesting.

Joe C. on Feb 6, 2009


Not that good but funny

Cody on Feb 6, 2009


Looks awesome anybody know what the song is at the 1:30 mark? Is that the Faces?

JimD on Feb 7, 2009


I have no reached a point where I am no longer excited for Seth Rogan's movies. He is the same in every film. I'm sure I'll laugh and I am sure it will be very entertaining, but he better be careful, because i'll stop caring completely if he keeps doing the same routine every time.

Andy Adair on Feb 7, 2009


The second half of the trailer turns into a comedic version of Taxi Driver. Looks good.

Kevin on Feb 7, 2009


Well that was different! The best things about that trailer, the sweet Anna Faris and the music!

K on Feb 7, 2009


#26 if he is the same in every movie, why does he act like a dickish sociopath in this one, and a loveable loser everyman in the others? ๐Ÿ˜› Maybe if this actually LOOKED like the same Rogen we've seen before then you would be spot on, but as it stands, it just sounds like Rogen bashing for the sake of it. I think this could be the movie in which he shows us something different, especially based on the way the directors previous movie went down.

chrisuk on Feb 7, 2009


wow that was not what i was expecting. i thought the whole movie took place in a mall, but it's so much more than that. u think now people will give seth rogen a little credit? he is NOT as bad as you say he is, and this red-band proves it. this is almost judd apatow quality.

LeeMan on Feb 7, 2009


Paul Blart, the rated R version. Seriously, this looks awesome!!!!!!! I was crying at the last shot, "Why you stoppin', motherfucker?!!"

ENRICO on Feb 7, 2009


#26: As if your opinion would make a huge difference on his career. Iยดm sure it scared the hell out of him on thinking about disapointing you.

john on Feb 7, 2009


#32 - It's an opinion on Rogan, and just that. I'm sure if I went to all the articles you've commented on and tried hard I could try and make you look like an idiot too, but I respect other people's opinion.

Andy Adair on Feb 7, 2009


I think he plays the same character in every movie, too. I have a hard time watching his movies. But I think this one has something different, and I especially want to see it with Anna Faris in it.

chad on Feb 7, 2009


Incredible this un-funny, un-talented Hack has to keep releasing dribble, and this Country let's this happen? And he IS not the same in every film. He actually gets WORSE!

Tim "Cloverfield" on Feb 7, 2009


Worthless! Worthless! Worthless! Just go away, please go away.

rogenhatersunite on Feb 7, 2009


OMG! I mean OMG this looks like. TERRIBLE! Oh yea, it has Rogen in it. TERRIBLE!!! And you are insane!

Humbug on Feb 7, 2009


#26 BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO! I though he had a little bit of potential a few years back, but I was wrong. It's like a bad movie over and over again. Whoops!? Rogen does make bad movie after bad movie after bad movie after bad movie after BAD MOVIE. There is no skill here, none what so ever. Jud Apatow LeeMann??!! Are you even serious?

The Real Doc Brown on Feb 7, 2009


Ha ha ha! Looks funny. Will definitely check this out.

bladerunnerF1 on Feb 7, 2009


I stand by my comment on if your 12,13, or 14 years then Rogen is funny to you. If your a mature adult you see through the crap, the non talent, the delivery, the presence, and his frame time is revolting. Utterly revolting. Alex I don't get your infacuation with this comedic turd. #35 makes a good point, rarely do we see an "actor" that keeps getting worse performance after performance. Nicolas Cage is a perfect example. Thus the actor refelcted in quotes. And now this Seth Rogen creature defines the same. A classic Alex? Stop it Sir, your damaging your cred. I refuse to even mention the Green Hornet.

D-9 on Feb 7, 2009


SHIT, pure SHIT!

silverbullets on Feb 7, 2009


Allright I will try this again! If your trying to reach the 12,13 and 14 year olds as a target for your style of comedy, then this turd Rogen is a perfect example. If your a mature adult and can see through the crap, the non talent, the screen presence, horrific timing this "Actor" and the tripe he writes and stars it turns you off and you won't waste your money. ( I use the quotes in actor becuse this Rogen is simply not an actor) I agree with #35 on how after every performance after performance get's worse. Nicolas Cage is also a perfect example of this. Seth Rogen is just revolting. The trailer is revolting. And I am so disappointed with Red Band. This proves just how low some will go to make a buck. The word Classic and Rogen cannot simply be uttered in the same phrase unless you include the word Shite!

D-9 on Feb 7, 2009


YUCH! How can Anna Farris stoop to such a low? I have no respect for her anymore. And I never had any respect for S.Rogen.

Swissmess on Feb 7, 2009


Anna Faris got big boobs.

The Awsome Norwegian Dude With Sunglasses on Feb 7, 2009


Wow. I didn't like this trailer. It does seem like paul blart but with an R rating, but without the charm of kevin. Btw. Why would you ever have respect for anna. cough cough house bunny cough cough.

Buttons on Feb 7, 2009


I get it D-9! This is the kinda of pure shit Feo LOVES!

feohatestheworld on Feb 7, 2009


Saw this movie a few weeks ago at a screening. IT IS COMPLETE SHIT, NOT WORTH A DIME!!!! Seriously there is nothing worth seeing in this garbage, I usually like Seth Rogan movies, and with Ray Liotta, what are the odds that it would BLOW as hard as it did.

SA1NT on Feb 7, 2009


This looks awesome! hahaha

Nick Sears on Feb 7, 2009


This trailer was horrible, I didn't laugh once. And the gross parts are so "Scary movie", that's not even funny to intelligent people...

Ricardo on Feb 7, 2009


Not as funny as I thought it would be..................................hmmm

insanartist on Feb 7, 2009


This is the idiot that they want to play the Green Hornet? What are they smoking?

Mike on Feb 7, 2009


Looks like the last 3 rogen films with a strong lean toward the Mall Cop bs. I'm not going to Rogen bash for the sake of it, he's always sucked! I don't get the kung fu grip he has over all of you ppl? The guys the ultimate hack.

790 on Feb 8, 2009


Andy Adair, Seth Rogen gives us GOLD COMEDY every time. If he keeps these coming, by all means, keep 'em coming and leave Adam Sandler junk else where. "My dick is brown you motherfucker!" - awesome

Conrad on Feb 8, 2009


Ehh I will pass on that one. I think I smiled once. Just not funny to me at all.

Atomic Popcorn on Feb 9, 2009


So, is it funny because they curse a lot? Then, fuck, it's fuckingly motherfucking funny as fuck.

Luis M on Feb 9, 2009


I bet ya the streaker is Ray Liotta!

K on Feb 9, 2009


Why you Stopping Mother F'er .... hmmm... maybe we should stop covering this one... BLAH... boring.. SIDE NOTE::: I do wanna watch the skateboard up side the head clip a couple times though.. hahahaha

Dusty on Feb 9, 2009


aziiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiz ansaari

Allen Sharpe on Feb 9, 2009


"MY DICK IS BROWN, YOU DUMB MOTHERFUCKER!!" If that line alone doesn't make you wanna see this movie, then you are one sad individual.

BROWN DICK on Feb 10, 2009


#59 Is that seriously how low your standards are? Americans don't fucking know what 'funny' is.

Hostile on Feb 23, 2009
