Worth Watching - Nov 2: Bruce Campbell's My Name Is Bruce Trailer!
This is a very long-time in the making - the last official trailer for Bruce Campbell's self-titled horror movie epic - My Name Is Bruce! The film is currently touring the US right now (see the schedule here) and will most likely be coming to your own local town soon, so don't miss it. If you need any incentive to go see it - this trailer is it! My Name Is Bruce stars Bruce Campbell as himself - a self-obsessed B-movie star who is coaxed by a group of fanboys to fight a real undead monster in a small rural town in Oregon. This looks absolutely ridiculously fun, much more so than Man with the Screaming Brain, and I can't wait to see it!

My Name Is Bruce is direct by "The Chin" himself, Bruce Campbell, who has directed a few odd indie films previously, most notably Man with the Screaming Brain. The script was written by "Smallville" and "Battlestar Galactica" writer Mark Verheiden. The film was produced by Dark Horse Entertainment and is theoretically being distributed by Lionsgate, although there is no actual release date. Instead, Bruce Campbell is touring around the US himself showing the film himself - see the full schedule here.

"NOT Worth watching!"...me so solly! Is racial stereotyping still considered harmless and funny?

in (1:30 ) Bruce said : I made a movie in Bulgaria ! I am ready for anything ? What does that mean ?
Nick on Nov 2, 2008
I love Bruce Campbell but this one looks a little iffy. There were some decent looking scenes but I don't think that trailer really did anything to psych me out. I'm gonna save my judgment for the finished product, though. I'll prolly rent it.

#8 - "Man With the Screaming Brain" was filmed in Bulgaria and he wasn't too fond of that city. As for the movie I'll wait for DVD.
Nora on Nov 2, 2008
wtf, Bruce Campbell is the shit, but this looks just retarded, imo he's a great cult film star, but the persona he's created is not one that lends itself to this kind of self-referential garbage.

I meant to say country.
Nora on Nov 2, 2008
Well I am a big fan and I will be waiting to see this one in the theater.

Bruce brought this movie to the Alamo Ritz in Austin last weekend. The first show sold out in five minutes. They added two more--all sellouts. The movie is silly, really silly, but a lot of fun. He references everything from Evil Dead to Three Stooges in it. If you are a Bruce Campbell fan, or if you want to see a dumb comedy that isn't just a string of fart jokes, you may like it.

I saw him speak during the tour for his book If Chins Could Kill, and he was great. A really funny and genuine guy who stuck around for well over an hour to sign everything everyone in the auditorium had. He made me an even bigger fan if possible. I can't wait to see this one.

Bring on Evil Dead IV! 🙂

You guys are wacked. This looks funny.
J.R on Nov 3, 2008
Oh c'mon guys! It's Bruce freakin Campbell...you take yourselves way too seriously. Unhook your mind and enjoy it for what it is...a jab, a poke, and a teasing of himself and all his movies. Jeez!!! Unreashed...hahaha
Dunkhan on Nov 3, 2008
This is a Bruce Campbell dream. As tacky as it gets and impossibly bad plot.... I can't wait to see it!!!
Chef Christine on Nov 3, 2008
Stupid Funny, I have been looking forward to this for a while, but this is the first time I have seen the trailer. I can't wait for it to come out!!
Bucklee on Nov 3, 2008
Well said, Dunkhan! Lighten up, people. He can laugh at himself, and had a blast making the movie. It's Bruce Campbell, for crying out loud. He's not known for making "serious" movies. It just doesn't make any sense to watch this trailer, or read about the movie and then say, "OMG! A CHEESY B MOVIE? FROM BRUCE CAMPBELL?! Oh noes!" If you want to go see some uptight I-take-myself-too-seriously-and-don't-even-know-it actor in a lame movie trying too hard to win Oscars, obviously this movie isn't for you. So acknowledge that and move along or try and enjoy the lighthearted content in My Name Is Bruce. I'm sure it's not for everyone, but I will definitely be keeping an eye out at the local indy theater.

I hope this comes up to Canada, it looks pretty funny.
Res Tanch on Nov 3, 2008
I agree with 22 and 25. If you nay-sayers would just smoke a little and mellow out, I'm sure you might enjoy this. It makes no sense to watch a trailer for a BRUCE CAMPBELL movie and complain that it looks cheesy. Doing cheesy movies is his thing.

Hey,if you want art go to a museum. If you want entertainment get in line behind me. When is it playing Kona?
Philip Brown on Nov 3, 2008
I cant Waite i got my tickets in advance for the Boston screening on Friday night and all the shows are sold out for both Fri and Sat. I know its cheesy and a lot of people will hate it but that is what he he does and that's what i love about his films.

*only for Bruce Campbell fans*
Chris Rainbolt on Nov 4, 2008
Looks like good, cheesy fun. Potentially this could be as good (and bad) as Big Trouble in Little China. That said, BTiLC is much better on dvd while you're at home on a rainy Saturday. In the theaters... not so much.
kevjohn on Nov 4, 2008
this is a movie for BRUCE CAMPBELL fans...we will absolutely love it...if you dont like Bruce, then dont go see the movie numbnuts...now thats easy enough to understand, yeah??
moldybread on Nov 5, 2008
Looks stupid, can't wait. Bruce Campbell is better than fat baby Jesus.
Crapola on Nov 6, 2008
Well put, moldybread...let me expand on what you said: There are two ways I rank movies. One is "best movies" reserved for excellent production quality, great stories with a message, great acting/directing, etc. The other is "favorite movies" these are movies that I can watch over, and over, and over, and over again and enjoy them EVERY SINGLE TIME.... At the top of my list of the latter category is "Army of Darkness"...one of the greatest movies ever made (which I have seen at least forty times...no exaggeration). If you can't understand the comedy of Bruce Campbell playing his trademark character with equal parts bravado and incompetence, then you'll never understand why "My Name is Bruce" is a movie that I am more excited about than any other in the last five years. May there be a slew of sequels.
Ash on Nov 6, 2008
Bruce Campbell AND Ted Raimi. How could it possibly get any sweeter than that!!!! This better come to Australia or else I am invading your country!!!!
boyracer on Nov 7, 2008

Da Man on Nov 8, 2008

Saw him and the movie last Friday in NYC. Someone actually proposed to his girl two rows behind me. "As Bruce Campbell is my witness..." Movie was good. May be lost on people not so familiar with this living legend and his work.

how much is a Bruce Campbell doll in mint condition in the box worth?
mariea law on Oct 11, 2009
movie is good, but it seems that they can do their best if they have enough budget
