Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz, John Cena in 'Blockers' Red Band Trailer

Blockers Red Band Trailer

"Our girls are not thinking things through!" Universal Pictures has released a new red band trailer for the new comedy titled Blockers, formerly known as The Pact, the feature directorial debut of writer/producer Kay Cannon. The plot is awful - three parents discover their children are planning to lose their virginity on prom night, and set off to go stop them. If you don't get it, the title is a reference to "cockblocking" and they even hint at that directly in the title card at the end of this trailer. Starring Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz, John Cena, Kathryn Newton, Geraldine Indira Viswanathan, and Gideon Adlan. I'm just going to say it - this looks so terrible, like really, really bad. It does not look funny at all. Stay away, stay far far away.

Second Trailer for Armando Iannucci's New Satire 'The Death of Stalin'

The Death of Stalin Trailer

"Nobody's gonna get killed, I promise you!" Entertainment One in the UK has unveiled the second official trailer for Armando Iannucci's latest political satire, The Death of Stalin. This premiered at the Toronto Film Festival earlier this month to some rave reviews, and opens in cinemas in the UK in October, however it still doesn't have a US release date yet. Based on Fabien Nury's graphic novel, the film is about Russian dictator Joseph Stalin's last days and the disorganized chaos of the regime after his death in 1953 and 30 years of iron-fisted rule. Adrian McLoughlin plays Stalin, with an ensemble cast of characters including Rupert Friend, Steve Buscemi, Olga Kurylenko, Jason Isaacs, Andrea Riseborough, Jeffrey Tambor, Paddy Considine, Michael Palin, and Jonathan Aris. This looks great, looking forward to it.

New Official Trailer for Long Lost Cooking Mockumentary 'Cook Off!'

Cook Off! Trailer

"Use more marshmallows!" Lionsgate has unveiled a new trailer for a mockumentary comedy titled Cook Off!, making fun of cooking competitions. This was actually filmed over a decade ago, and it first premiered at the US Comedy Arts Festival Aspen back in 2007. Somehow it has been sitting on a shelf all these years, and yet is just now getting an official release thanks to Lionsgate. The huge ensemble cast includes Melissa McCarthy, Wendy McLendon-Covey, Ben Falcone, Niecy Nash, Jennifer Cox, Stephen Root, Diedrich Bader, Louie Anderson, Gary Anthony Williams, Jennifer Elise Cox, Cathryn Michon, Markie Post, and Sam Pancake. This definitely does have a Christopher Guest-esque vibe, with a cast of eccentric goofballs all makin' food under one roof. I'm just curious as to why it took so long to get a release.

Second Wild, Crazy Trailer for Comedy Sequel 'A Bad Moms Christmas'

A Bad Moms Christmas Trailer

"Can you put a price tag on wonder?" No, I guess you can't. STX Entertainment has debuted another rowdy new trailer for comedy sequel A Bad Mom's Christmas, from the same writers and directors behind the smash hit Bad Moms just last year. This new trailer is a bit crazier than the first one, because sure it's time to go wild. The three "bad moms" from the original, Milas Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn, all return. And this time we get to meet their mothers - played by Cheryl Hines, Christine Baranski and Susan Sarandon. Also starring Jay Hernandez, Peter Gallagher, Justin Hartley, David Walton. This looks uncomfortably entertaining, especially if you're in the mood for this kind of raucous comedy.

First Teaser Trailer for Sequel 'Super Troopers 2' Hitting Theaters 4/20

Super Troopers 2 Trailer

"Seriously, cut the crap guys!" The boys are back! Fox Searchlight has released an official teaser trailer for the long-awaited sequel Super Troopers 2, hitting theaters next spring some 17 years after the first movie became a huge hit. This ultimate stoner comedy picks up where the first one left off and follows the Super Troopers who are tasked with establishing a Highway Patrol station in a border area between the US and Canada. Pretty much everyone is back: Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, Erik Stolhanske, Brian Cox, Lynda Carter, and Marisa Coughlan. The newcomers include Emmanuelle Chriqui, Rob Lowe, Tyler Labine, Will Sasso, and Hayes MacArthur. This actually looks like it's going to be fun, just what the doctor ordered. Seems like they're pushing the comedy forward.

Watch: Heist Movie Meta-Spoof Short 'The Heist' Will Make You Laugh

The Heist Short Film

"You're gonna need guys as crazy as you are." Time for a fun short to wrap up the week. The Heist is a meta-spoof comedy short mocking the heist movie trope of "assembling the team". Made by filmmaker Luke Harris, they wanted to poke fun at this trope and other cliches from Hollywood, so they whipped up this short. It's a direct reference to the scene in Steven Soderbergh's Oceans 11 (one of my favorite heist movies) where they first meet up with Reuben and tell him about their plan. It's short (only 4 minutes) and lives up to the promise of delivering some top notch spoofery. Of course, it's also perfectly timed as Soderbergh has yet another heist movie currently in theaters - Logan Lucky (which I highly recommend seeing). Have fun.

If You Want It: Tyler Perry's 'Boo 2! A Madea Halloween' Official Trailer

Boo 2! A Madea Halloween

"People got dead up there for real!" Oh boy, here we go again… Lionsgate has revealed the trailer for the newest Tyler Perry joint, another Madea comedy (sequel) titled Boo 2! A Madea Halloween. This is, obviously enough, a sequel to the goofy Halloween comedy Boo! A Madea Halloween release just last year. Tyler Perry not only returns to write and direct, but also star again as Madea (and Joe and Brian). The cast includes Cassi Davis, Patrice Lovely, Chandra Currelley, Yousef Erakat, Diamond White, Lexy Panterra, and Andre Hall. The plot involves Madea, Bam & Hattie going to a haunted campground where they find monsters, goblins, and the boogeyman. As much as I have absolutely no interest in these movies, I have to give them props on the amusing poster design. Other than that, if you want to watch then go ahead.

Antonio Banderas & Olga Kurylenko in Trailer for 'Gun Shy' Comedy

Gun Shy Trailer

"Rock out with your glock out." Saban Films has debuted the first official trailer for an action comedy called Gun Shy, formerly known as Salty (which is the title that appears on the very early poster art seen below the trailer). The movie stars Antonio Banderas as an over-the-top rockstar named Turk Henry, with a wife played by Olga Kurylenko. She gets kidnapped while the two are vacationing in Chile, and Banderas recruits some wacky people to help him find and free her. Sounds like a fun straight-to-VHS concept for an action movie, why not. The full cast includes Ben Cura, Mark Valley, Aisling Loftus, David Mitchell, Jeremy Swift, and Jesse Johnson. This really looks ridiculous, but it may be a fun beer-and-pizza rental.

Trailer for Pet Transformation Comedy 'Unleashed' with Kate Micucci

Unleashed Trailer

Love is a four-legged word. Level 33 Entertainment has debuted a new official trailer for the indie comedy titled Unleashed, written and directed by Finn Taylor. Yet another pet transformation movie, instead of a person turning into an animal, this time it's two animals turning into two people - two perfect guys. Kate Micucci stars as a woman who moves to San Francisco with her two pets after a break up, and learns about herself when they become these guys. Also starring Justin Chatwin, Steve Howey, Sean Astin, Illeana Douglas, Hana Mae Lee, and Josh Brener. This definitely looks very cheesy and almost way too quirky, but I like that the guys still act like her cat and dog, that makes it a bit more interesting. Have a look below.

The Bachelor Party is Still On in Trailer for Joey Kern's Film 'Big Bear'

Big Bear Trailer

"This is the rebirth of Joe!" Blue Fox Entertainment has debuted the trailer for a comedy titled Big Bear, from actor-turned-filmmaker Joey Kern, who also stars in the film on top of writing & directing it. Big Bear is about a group of guys who get together for a bachelor party, only to discover his fiancée was cheating on him and now the wedding is called off. The party is still on anyway, and they wake up to discover that one of them has kidnapped the man who is sleeping with his fiancée. Joey Kern stars along with Adam Brody, Tyler Labine, Toby Huss, Zachary Knighton, and Pablo Schreiber. This seems like a "dudes" movie with nothing but dudes in the script, being dudes, and messing with other dudes. It doesn't look that good.

Marlon Wayans in First Trailer for Time Loop Film 'Naked' from Netflix

Naked Trailer

"I'm freakin' out!" Netflix has unveiled a trailer for a goofy comedy titled Naked, another new time loop film (in addition to two others this year alone - Before I Fall and Happy Death Day). From the director of the parody comedy A Haunted House, Marlon Wayans stars in Naked as a guy about to be married, who ignores his responsibilities and spends the night before the wedding partying with a friend. He wakes up naked in an elevator and must relive the next hour until he gets things right on his wedding day. Yeah, what a unique concept. The full ensemble cast features Regina Hall, Dennis Haysbert, Scott Foley, Loretta Devine, Neil Brown Jr., Dave Sheridan, Megan Messmer, Jonathan Todd Jackson, and Cory Hardrict. As much as I usually enjoy time loop films, this one looks pretty bad. Doubt I'll be watching this.

Official Trailer for Comedy 'The Layover' Directed by William H. Macy

The Layover Trailer

"I want him!" "Not this time…" Vertical Entertainment and DirecTV have released the first foul-mouthed trailer for a comedy titled The Layover, directed by actor-turned-filmmaker William H. Macy (his second film after Rudderless a few years back). The spunky comedy stars Alexandra Daddario and Kate Upton as best friends who get stuck in St. Louis on an extended layover. Along the way they meet and fall for the same guy, played by Matt Barr, and end up battling for his affection. The full cast includes Matt Jones, Molly Shannon, Kal Penn, and Rob Corddry. This looks mildly entertaining, but also very cliche and generic, but I'm not surprised. Don't really think this is for me, but I'm sure some people will love it. Enjoy.
