Jojo Rabbit Trailer

"Ah look at that psycho, he's going to get us all killed!" Fox Searchlight has unveiled the first teaser trailer for Taika Waititi's new film, titled Jojo Rabbit, which was announced as a world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival this fall. The twisted "anti-hate satire" is set during the early days of World War II, and follows a lonely German boy named Jojo "Rabbit" Betzler who is in Hitler's youth army. His life is turned upside down when he finds out his single mother is hiding a Jewish girl inside their home. Roman Griffin Davis stars as Jojo, Scarlett Johansson plays his mother, Taika Waititi plays Hitler, and the full cast includes Thomasin McKenzie, Rebel Wilson, Stephen Merchant, Alfie Allen, and Sam Rockwell. We have been waiting to get a first look at this and it doesn't disappoint! In fact, this looks rather brilliant and it's barely 60 seconds of footage. Taika reigns!! Can't wait to see this film, one of my most anticipated this fall.

Here's the first teaser trailer (+ teaser poster) for Taika Waititi's Jojo Rabbit, direct from YouTube:

Lonely German boy Jojo "Rabbit" Betzler (Roman Griffin Davis) has his world view turned upside down when he discovers that his single mother Rosie (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism. Jojo Rabbit is directed by acclaimed New Zealand actor / writer / filmmaker Taika Waititi, director of the excellent films Eagle vs Shark, Boy, What We Do in the Shadows, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, and Thor: Ragnarok previously. The screenplay is also written by Taika Waititi, adapted from Christine Leunens' novel titled "Caging Skies" first published in 2008. The film is set to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival this fall. Fox Searchlight will then release Waititi's Jojo Rabbit in select theaters starting on October 18th this fall.

What else else could you do with weird moustached elephant version of human being responsible for the worst part of the human history but to make fun of him, now more than seventy years later ...

Taika dude, is that you? How you're doiing? Sorry, I just couldn't resist to add some of my thoughts about it. Looking great, man ...

Must. See. Film.

Yes. Sir.

Some good points there. But the Hitler main character is a bore.

DAVIDPD on Jul 24, 2019


How is he a bore? Maybe its because every little thing Taika does hits me in the funny bone but I thought his bit was the best part of the trailer.

Jon Odishaw on Jul 25, 2019


Probably just me, but the character seems pretty predictable and therefore not interesting. I also like Taika, so I might still see it, but I wish he did something a little more clever and less intentional.
