Watch This: Goofy Animated Short Made to Promote 'The Nice Guys'
"Dedicated to truth, justice and the bustling small business." The marketing for this movie just gets better and better. The final video from Warner Bros before it opens in theaters everywhere is an "animated short" for The Nice Guys. It's basically a mini recap of the movie and the trailers we've seen so far, so if you want to go in fresh maybe you should stay away. But then again, why not dive in and have fun. The Nice Guys is the new Shane Black action comedy starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, as well as Angourie Rice and Matt Bomer. It's getting great reviews and is worth seeing if you love laughing your ass off. This is only 1 minute long, and I wish they would've made a short with its own unique story, but it's fun anyway.
Here's the animated short film for Shane Black's The Nice Guys, direct from WB's YouTube:
The Nice Guys is co-written and directed by filmmaker Shane Black, screenwriter of the Lethal Weapon series, The Monster Squad, Last Action Hero, and director of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Marvel's Iron Man 3 previously. The screenplay is also co-written by Anthony Bagarozzi. "It is an R-rated film and it's a caper," Black told People. "It's a little fast, a little funny and a little rough in places, kind of coarse. These guys are working-class dudes, they're not really sophisticated private detectives, so it's a chance to do the kind of thriller I don't see too much of anymore." It's more than just noir. "It's a little bit pushed – the premise, the time period, everything is a little crazy." WB will release The Nice Guys on May 20th early this summer.
