Must Watch: Rainn Wilson's The Rocker Trailer
The first trailer for Rainn Wilson's The Rocker has debuted. "Office" fans are definitely going to enjoy this. The movie is about a drummer from a failed 80's band that joins a high school band to live his dreams of becoming a rock superstar. It stars Rainn Wilson as Robert Fishman, the drummer who joins the band. Superbad's gorgeous Emma Stone also stars and even Will Arnett has a cameo, too. I'm not sure this is going to be one of the best comedies of the summer, but I definitely think it'll be one of those better-than-the-others comedies. It also reminds me a lot of Hot Rod but with Rainn Wilson as a rockstar instead of Andy Samberg. Take a look at the badass new trailer below and let us know what you think!

The Rocker is directed by Peter Cattaneo of The Full Monty, Lucky Break, and Opal Dream. The script was penned by Maya Forbes ("The Larry Sanders Show" and Seeing Other People) and Wallace Wolodarsky ("The Simpsons" and Seeing Other People). The Rocker is currently set to hit theaters on August 20th this summer.

its DWIGHT! on a side note, this looks pretty amazing.
hanalex on May 6, 2008
I love Dwight but... i think this looks horrible. I still hope it does well though... I love Rainn Wilson. It definitely has that Hot Rod feel (which had a few laughs for me :)). I'll stay open minded but...eh...
silver on May 6, 2008
hot rod was genius, this looks kinda weak though

Correction, that isn't Will Arnett that's Jason Sudekis.

Looks funny... in a dumb way. I would probably see it. What's up with the fat kid with the curly hair? What - was Jonah Hill busy? Was this kid directed to act just like him?
Tom Brazelton on May 7, 2008
The only part I found remotely funny is the end when that chick got sneezed on... I won't be seeing this 'til I get my BB employee rental, no way money is going to get wasted on this.
Showtyme on May 7, 2008

Amanda on May 7, 2008
This movie is for all of the new "Rock Band" rockers out there that have been patiently tearing it up at home, wondering what it would be like to take their SkiLLz0rz out on the road! This is well timed and definitely fills a quiet demand out there...

I always knew Rainn Wilson partied like a Rock Star. Now we've got a movie to prove it. This looks like the Wayne's World / Wedding Singer for a new generation. I may not see it in theatres, but TONS of teenagers & little kids will. And they'regoing to be quoting it ad nauseum to kingdom come. (Brats)

Colin Dean on May 7, 2008
i am just wondering why teddy geiger is not mentioned in the summary?
bethie on May 7, 2008
even if this movie didn't look good, i'd be seeing it just because teddy geiger's in it looove him :] :] :]
alyssa on May 7, 2008

Sinner on May 7, 2008
Holy Sh** I'm so watching this movie when is out in Theater or DVD. I can't wait for teddy to come at my home town in Twins Cities ^_^
Lea on May 7, 2008
I must disagree with the majority. This looks terrible.
Heckle on May 7, 2008
i think the only reason i think it looks superrr awesome is bc teddy geiger's in it. and a lot of teenage girls probably will feel the same. he might get really well-known from this, and im happy for him but i dont want him to become the next like freaking jonas brothers or something eww. anyways, teddy geiger is quite the hottie.
what what in the butt on May 7, 2008

ash-a-tack on May 7, 2008
haha! this looks hilarious! I'm gonna love it! I've been waiting for this for forever!...I love Teddy 🙂 anyone know what it's rated?
Katie on May 7, 2008
i saw an early screening of this movie... stupidest movie coming out this summer...besides that one playboy bunny movie. dumb. period. it's surprising emma stone would go from superbad to lame excuses like this (and that playboy movie)...if she plans on making a permanent stay in hollywood, she better start scoring better roles because these are just plain stupid and i can't take her seriously anymore and i actually like her. she's probably in this just so she can be with her boyfriend.
me on May 7, 2008
omg so fucking excited to see it! TEDDY FUCKING GEIGER BAAAAABY! <333333333

yah, so whos pretty much only seeing this coz teddy's in it? come on, raise your hands.. i know i am...
Jen on May 8, 2008
Apparently, I'm an old f**k, cuz I have no freakin idea who Teddy Geiger is. To quote the legendary Abe Simpson, "I used to be with it, now it has changed. And now it scares me sensless" Or words to that effect. I'm old remember? I don't need to memorize everything. Get stuffed you youngsters! Yeah, so I'm really only 37, but still have no f'n clue who Teddy Geiger is. But still, Rainn Wilson makes me laugh, so I'll give him a day in court.
Derek on May 8, 2008
i know im seeing it cuz of teddy geiger :] but i cant see it the day it comes out cuz i'll be on a cruise until august 3 :[
jEssica baaby [; on May 8, 2008
The *BEEP* *BEEP* ...*BEEP* bit about the 'money truck backing up to your front door' has just embedded itself into my personal lexicon for all time! Teddy Gieger who?? Don't know him from Adam, but Emma Stone looks hotter than ever. Please tell me she's legal.
kevjohn on May 8, 2008
Looks like it's gonna be funny. Gotta see this one...I was in the crowd during the concert scenes.... 🙂
Kate on May 8, 2008
