Manure Teaser Trailer

You don't want to watch a movie called Manure? Even if it's directed by the guys who last made The Astronaut Farmer? And even if it stars Billy Bob Thornton and Téa Leoni? If we haven't sold you yet, than maybe this teaser trailer or these photos will. Manure is showing at Sundance in January and today we've got a short teaser trailer to show you. What exactly is Manure? It's a comedy about manure salesmen in 1960s heartland America. And yes, it stars Billy Bob Thornton as that very salesman. Thanks to SlashFilm we've got this There Will Be Blood-like trailer that doesn't show much, but might be just enough.

Watch the original teaser trailer for Manure from YouTube:

Manure is directed by Michael Polish, of Twin Falls Idaho, Jackpot, Northfork, and The Astronaut Farmer previously. The screenplay was co-written by Michael and Mark Polish, aka the Polish Brothers, who together wrote the four aforementioned films. Manure is premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January where it will be looking for a distributor. Stay tuned for more information in 2009!

4 is this anything remotely like TWBB? The name of the film resembles my thoughts on that teaser.

yeah this so far looks like shit...... uh yeah billy is alright but not that great, and the idea doesnt sound all that great either.

The Astronaut Farmer was pretty much cliched and silly and lame. This needs a better trailer to make me want to go anywhere near it.

I saw the Sundance screener. This teaser doesn't do anything, not even tease. This movie is beyond cool. The concept is brilliant. Everyone will have to see what brown can do for them.

On YouTube there's an ET spot on Tea Leone on the set of Manure. It looks remarkable.

I just saw the premiere of Manure last night and I loved the movie. The audience loved it. Everyone was laughing and applauding. Don't listen to the bloggers who are talking shit about Manure. Billy Bob Thorton and Tea are great! It is beyond cool as corneater says. Can't wait for it to hit the theaters to see it again.
