Watch: First Trailer for John Landis' New Film 'Burke and Hare'
Ohhh is it great to have John Landis back behind the lens again! And unlike John Carpenter, his comeback actually looks fantastic! Our friends from HeyUGuys.co.uk have debuted the first full official trailer for John Landis' new black comedy Burke and Hare starring Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis. This horror-comedy is based on a true story about two "grave robbers" who used to sell corpses to a medical college. It looks like a very entertaining period comedy and its even got Isla Fisher, Tom Wilkinson, Tim Curry and Christopher Lee appearing, too. I have to say - the accents threw me off at first, but I still think this looks great. Enjoy!
Watch the first official trailer for John Landis' Burke and Hare:
Burke and Hare, directed by legendary filmmaker John Landis (Animal House, Blues Brothers, American Werewolf in London, Trading Places, Coming to America, Beverly Hills Cop III), is a black comedy about two 19th century grave robbers who discover a lucrative business selling corpses to the Edinburgh Medical College for dissection. The script, co-written by Piers Ashworth & Nick Moorcroft, is based on the true story of William Burke and William Hare, who sold some 17 corpses to the college. This was made independently in the UK and it doesn't have a US distributor, so we're still waiting to hear about its release. Look good?
