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.

Official Trailer for Indie Comedy 'Killing Hasselhoff' Starring Ken Jeong

Killing Hasselhoff Trailer

"So you up to speed on what we need you to do?" Universal has debuted the trailer for an indie comedy titled Killing Hasselhoff, which has also had informal titles previously including The Hangover Part 4 and Celebrity Death Pool. Ken Jeong plays a man who loses everything in a high stakes celebrity death pool, including his home and his wife and his business. He realizes the only way to get everything back is to actually kill his celebrity - David Hasselhoff. The ensemble cast includes Jim Jeffries, Rhys Darby, Will Sasso, Jennifer Ikeda, Ron Funches, Colton Dunn, Dan Bakkedahl, along with David Hasselhoff himself. This looks as awful as it sounds, and is headed straight-to-DVD if anyone is interested. See below.

They're Back! First Trailer for 'A Bad Mom's Christmas' Comedy Sequel

A Bad Mom's Christmas Trailer

"Remember when the holidays were actually fun?" STX Entertainment has unveiled the first full trailer for comedy sequel A Bad Mom's Christmas, from the same writers and directors behind the smash hit Bad Moms just last year. Fast turnaround on this, but why not. The three "bad moms" from the original movie, 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, and David Walton. This is a red band trailer mostly for some vulgar language, which is perfect for this. Glad to see them totally embrace the raunchy craziness of these moms.

Trailer for 'Brave New Jersey' About the 'War of the Worlds' Broadcast

Brave New Jersey Trailer

"So, what are we supposed to do now?" Gravitas Ventures has released the trailer for an indie comedy titled Brave New Jersey, from filmmaker Jody Lambert. The film tells the true story of a small town in New Jersey that freaked out during Orson Welles' legendary 1938 "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast, believing it was real. They decided to make this a comedy, which may work better in the end since playing this serious would be a whole other thing. Brave New Jersey features an ensemble cast including Tony Hale, Heather Burns, Anna Camp, Sam Jaeger, Raymond J. Barry, Dan Bakkedahl, Mel Rodriguez, Grace Kaufman, Matt Oberg, and Erika Alexander. This looks totally goofy but still heartfelt and fun. Enjoy.

Second Trailer for Comedy 'Home Again' Starring Reese Witherspoon

Home Again Trailer

"Let's just do our best not to cramp each other's style." Open Road Films has debuted a full trailer for the comedy Home Again, the feature directorial debut of young filmmaker Hallie Meyers-Shyer. This amusing original Hollywood comedy is about a recently divorced woman who moves back home to Los Angeles with her two young daughters. She decides to take in three aspiring filmmaker boys who share her place with her, and disrupt things in both helpful ways and troubling ways. Reese Witherspoon stars, with Michael Sheen, Lake Bell, Candice Bergen, Nat Wolff, Jon Rudnitsky, Pico Alexander, P.J. Byrne. There is something about this film that is really annoying to me. The first teaser was good, this trailer not so much.

First Full Trailer for 'Daddy's Home 2' Comedy Sequel No One Wanted

Daddy's Home 2 Trailer

"Look who's here!" Paramount has debuted the first official trailer for Daddy's Home 2, the sequel to the comedy Daddy's Home, about a stepfather who has to deal with a crazy biological father. Why did they make a sequel to this? I don't remember anyone saying anything good about it or hearing about it being a hit. Ugh. Daddy's Home 2 brings back director Sean Anders, as well as stars Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, and Linda Cardellini. Newcomers for this sequel include John Cena, John Lithgow, and surprisingly, Mel Gibson. This looks as terrible as you're expecting, with cheap, excruciating humor and an absurdly cliche scenario that honestly seems kind of offensive. But whatever. I definitely won't be seeing this load of junk.

Full-Length Trailer for HBO's 'Tour de Pharmacy' with Andy Samberg

Tour de Pharmacy Trailer

"This is what happens when we train super hard on the bicycle." HBO has premiered the full-length trailer for the mockumentary comedy Tour de Pharmacy, starring Andy Samberg as a cyclist competing in bicycle races during the 1980s. The film is a hilarious satire making fun of the cycling world and the fact that almost all of the cyclists in the Tour de France were on drugs. The first teaser for this was funny enough to completely sell me, but this one is even better. I can't wait to see this! The full cast includes John Cena, Freddie Highmore, Daveed Diggs, Orlando Bloom, and a whole bunch of others, like Jeff Goldblum and Mike Tyson. Plus there is an appearance by the one-and-only king of doping, Lance Armstrong, which is a bit crazy. Everything about this seems so absurd, but that's why it looks so damn good. Enjoy it!

Linda Cardellini in First Trailer for Kidnapping Comedy 'Austin Found'

Austin Found Trailer

"She's what they call nowadays a 'mean girl'." Gravitas Ventures has released an official trailer for the film Austin Found, a comedy about a fame-obsessed single mother who tries to pull off a fake kidnapping in order to get attention. Actress Linda Cardellini stars as Leanne, who is bored with her "unglamorously average lifestyle" and recruits her ex-boyfriend and his ex-con friend to put this plan together and have her daughter go missing for a few months. The cast includes Urusula Parker as her daughter Patty, along with Kirsten Schaal, Craig Robinson, Skeet Ulrich, Patrick Warburton, Jon Daly, Chris Parnell, and Matt Jones. This looks crazy stupid, but perhaps that is the point, it's a comedy about how stupid people can be sometimes all in pursuit of fame and fortune and glory. But I recommend Ingrid Goes West instead.
