Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Trailer

"I've seen people with actual experience make bad decisions." Paramount has debuted a trailer for the new comedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, based on the memoirs of Kim Barker, a TV news journalist who ended up covering the war in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Tina Fey plays Kim Barker, and when she gets there she meets one of the only other women covering war, played by Margot Robbie. The cast includes Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Alfred Molina, Josh Charles, Sheila Vand and Christopher Abbott, which is an impressive line-up for this film. This looks better than I was expecting, and I appreciate that the comedy is a couple notches above the kind of dumb humor Hollywood usually puts in. Give it a look below.

Here's the first trailer for Glenn Ficarra & John Requa's Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, from Para's YouTube:

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

A journalist (Tina Fey) recounts her wartime coverage in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Based on the book "The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days In Afghanistan And Pakistan" by Kim Barker. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is co-directed by filmmakers Glenn Ficarra & John Requa, of the films I Love You Phillip Morris, Crazy Stupid Love, and Focus most recently. The screenplay was written by comic Robert Carlock (writer for "Saturday Night Live"), adapted from Kim Barker's book. Paramount will release Whiskey Tango Foxtrot in theaters everywhere starting March 4th, 2016 next year. For more info on the film, visit their official site.

I can't belive they brought you back in The Force Awakens, and that your face was STILL wrong.

Spoiler Alert!

Saw that last joke coming, just like Randy Quaid in that one video.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot: WTF?...

Fey is better as an actress in other people's movies. I know her tenure as the head honcho and actress of 30 ROCK was amazing, but in films, she shines when she is just getting to act.

That Margot Robbie. Uh... The film looks average and Tina Fey looks fun. I'm just not sure if that's gonna sound fun to Afghan women ...

Glad to hear you statement about the usual dumb humor Hollywood puts out, Alex. I couldn't agree more. However, this still looks pretty dumb and low brow. With Tina Fey in it that'd just about be what one should expect.

I actually laughed....I think you're right about not the normal Hollywood slapstick. At least I hope so.
