Teaser Trailer for Music Fest Comedy 'The Festival' with Joe Thomas

The Festival Trailer

"When you party - go big, or go home!" Entertainment Film UK has debuted the first UK teaser trailer for a British comedy titled The Festival, a new film from the creators of the hit TV show "The Inbetweeners" (and the movies as well). The Festival is a comedy "about friendship, growing up, and going mad in a field." After Nick's girlfriend dumps him, his best mate Shane has the perfect antidote to his break-up blues: three days at an epic music festival. Of course, all kinds of weird things happen. Joe Thomas stars as Nick, and the full cast includes Nick Frost, Hammed Animashaun, Claudia O'Doherty, Jemaine Clement, Hannah Tointon, Lizzy Connolly, and Noel Fielding. This looks like one of those super cheesy, super crazy comedies you'll only really enjoy if you also enjoy going to music festivals. Or like making fun of them.

Tiffany Haddish & Tika Sumpter in First Full Trailer for 'Nobody's Fool'

Nobody's Fool Trailer

"If a man looks too good to be true - he is!!" Paramount has debuted the first official trailer for Nobody's Fool, the new comedy from filmmaker Tyler Perry, something a bit different than his Madea films in the past. This wacky movie stars two of the most popular actresses - Tiffany Haddish and Tika Sumpter - as sisters. Tanya (Haddish) is finally released from prison and reunites with her sister Danica (Sumpter), who discovers she is in an online relationship with a man that may be "catfishing" her. The full ensemble cast includes Whoopi Goldberg, Missi Pyle, Courtney Henggeler, Omari Hardwick, Amber Riley, and Crystal Lee Brown. This looks about is absurd and slightly funny as you might expect from Tyler Perry, not really my cup of tea. Maybe some of you will be into seeing this just because of Haddish? Check this out.

New Trailer for 4K Restoration of Mel Brooks' Classic 'The Producers'

The Producers Trailer

"We've got to find the worst play ever written!" Studiocanal UK has debuted a short new trailer for a 4K restoration re-release of Mel Brooks' original comedy classic The Producers, which first hit cinemas in 1968. They're celebrating the film's 50th anniversary, and putting it back in theaters for one day only this August (in the UK). There's no US plans yet, but we expect to hear something soon. Brooks' The Producers is about two producers who decide to make a flop Broadway show since it will make them more money than a hit. They go on to produce the hilarious show Springtime for Hitler. Gene Wilder stars in the film, along with Zero Mostel as his producer cohort, with Kenneth Mars, Dick Shawn, Lorenzo St. DuBois, Lee Meredith, Estelle Winwood, Christopher Hewett, and Andreas Voutsinas. Jawohl! This is a major comedy classic and a film that everyone should have seen by now anyway. If not, now is your chance. Enjoy.

Amazing Red Band Trailer for Puppet Movie 'The Happytime Murders'

The Happytime Murders Trailer

"Someone out there is killing puppets." OMFG. STX has released the first official red band trailer for The Happytime Murders, an R-rated puppet murder mystery neo-noir movie and it's going to knock your socks off. This has been in the works for a longtime, as it took them a while to get funding and actually make this, since it is so edgy and ridiculous. But it looks awesome! Directed by Jim Henson's son Brian Henson, the film is basically like Who Framed Roger Rabbit but with puppets and even more lewd humor. The full cast mixing live-action actors with puppets includes Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale, Jimmy O. Yang, Leslie David Baker, Ryan Gaul, and Elizabeth Banks. This looks totally NUTS oh man, I'm so glad they launched with a red band trailer. The gag at the end - wow. Now this is a must watch.

Second Trailer for 'The Spy Who Dumped Me' with Kunis & McKinnon

The Spy Who Dumped Me Trailer

"This is insane! Have you ever felt so alive?" Lionsgate has debuted the second official trailer for the buddy comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me, starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon as best friends who get into some spy trouble. The title is a riff on the classic James Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me (released 1977). The plot involves the two women getting caught up in a deadly spy conspiracy with assassins on their tail, and even though he's her ex-boyfriend, they're still going after them. This trailer is a more conventional action movie trailer, and I still prefer the Bond song riff for the first teaser. Justin Theroux co-stars as the titular "spy", with Gillian Anderson, Ivanna Sakhno, Sam Heughan, and Hasan Minhaj. This does look a little too absurd, and a little too cheesy, maybe it could be entertaining? Let's hope it's not a disaster.

First Teaser Trailer for Amusing Doggie Ensemble Comedy 'Dog Days'

Dog Days Teaser Trailer

"What is it about dogs that brings us so much joy?" LD Entertainment has debuted the first teaser trailer for a doggie romantic comedy titled Dog Days, a film about how dogs bring us together and connect us with people. Set in Los Angeles, Dog Days is an ensemble feature that follows a group of interconnected people in Los Angeles who are brought together by their lovable canine counterparts. The big ensemble cast includes Nina Dobrev, Vanessa Hudgens, Adam Pally, Eva Longoria, Rob Corddry, Tone Bell, Jon Bass, Michael Cassidy, Thomas Lennon, Tig Notaro, Finn Wolfhard, Ron Cephas Jones. Plus tons of cute doggies who also deserve to be credited as well. This looks very entertaining, I just hope it's more than a super cheesy comedy, and from this teaser there could be some depth to it. Maybe. Take a look.

Second Trailer for Comedy 'Book Club' with Diane Keaton & Jane Fonda

Book Club Trailer

"I don't care what society says about women our age… The choice should be ours!" Paramount has debuted a second official trailer for the summer comedy Book Club, starring Diane Keaton and Jane Fonda. The movie is about four lifelong friends who have their lives forever changed after reading 50 Shades of Grey in their monthly book club. Yeah, that's this movie, so watch out folks. The cast also includes Candice Bergen, Mary Steenburgen, Craig T. Nelson, with Andy Garcia and Don Johnson as two of the "old flames" that return to their lives. As I said with the first trailer, this actually doesn't look as bad as it sounds, but it definitely does not look that good either. But hey, maybe it's just not for me, right? Take a look below.

Second Trailer for Comedy 'Life of the Party' Starring Melissa McCarthy

Life of the Party Trailer

"I want the full experience!" Warner Bros has debuted a second trailer for the summer comedy Life of the Party opening in a few weeks, the latest collaboration between actress Melissa McCarthy and filmmaker Ben Falcone (who also happen to be married), both of Tammy and The Boss previously. McCarthy once again stars in Life of the Party as a woman who decides to go back to college after being dumped by her husband, but ends up in the same class and school as her daughter. So, of course, she decides to become the "life of the party" and live it up while enjoying her return to wild school life. The full cast includes Debby Ryan, Gillian Jacobs, Julie Bowen, Jacki Weaver, Maya Rudolph, Adria Arjona, and Stephen Root. This looks boring and instantly forgettable, unfortunately, still not laughing at anything in the trailer.

First Trailer for High School Comedy 'Class Rank' Directed by Eric Stoltz

Class Rank Trailer

"In order to change her rank she had to change the rules." Cinedigm has released the trailer for a high school, teen comedy titled Class Rank, one of the first two films directed by actor-turned-filmmaker Eric Stoltz (his other film is Confessions of a Teenage Jesus Jerk). It's described as a "quirky teen comedy about placement, politics and finding your voice." The story follows two high school outsiders who join forces in an attempt to overtake the school board. Guided by their families, they enter the perilous word of politics and, in the process, learn a thing or two about love. Yep. Class Rank stars Olivia Holt, Skyler Gisondo, Kristin Chenoweth, plus Bruce Dern. This makes me want to watch Alexander Payne's Election again.

Teaser Trailer for 'The Spy Who Dumped Me' with Kunis & McKinnon

The Spy Who Dumped Me Trailer

"Why is this happening?!" "I don't know, because you dated a spy." Lionsgate has released the first teaser trailer for the buddy comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me, starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon as best friends. The title is a riff on the classic James Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me (released 1977), obviously, and the trailer plays like a Bond movie with the cool animated title sequence and all of that. I dig it. The plot involves the two women getting caught up in a deadly spy conspiracy with assassins on their tail, and even though he's her ex-boyfriend, they're still going after them. Justin Theroux co-stars as the spy, with Gillian Anderson, Ivanna Sakhno, Sam Heughan, and Hasan Minhaj. I was actually expecting this to look awful, but it doesn't look so bad. A bit cheesy, sure, but these two make an amusing friends pair.

Second Official Trailer for Netflix's Action Comedy 'Game Over, Man!'

Game Over, Man!

"Shut up, we can take them!" Netflix has released a hilarious, second full-length trailer for the rowdy action comedy Game Over, Man!, the first feature made by the entire "Workaholics" group. The action film stars all three guys from "Workaholics" - Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Blake Anderson - and is directed by one of the creators of the show. We featured the first full trailer in January earlier this year, but with the film arriving later this month, it's time for another reminder. The story follows three stoner gamer friends about to sign a big financing deal when their main investor is kidnapped by terrorists. These three "zeroes" become heroes (sort of) when the hotel they work at is taken hostage. Yeah, this definitely is the modern stoner/gamer version of Die Hard, and I'm so there for it. I just hope it's actually good! Fire this up below.

Maxine Peake in First UK Trailer for Stand Up Comic Film 'Funny Cow'

Funny Cow Trailer

A woman who has a funny bone for a backbone. Entertainment One UK has debuted an official trailer for the indie comedy Funny Cow, starring English actress Maxine Peake as a comedienne in the 70s making her mark on the male-dominated stand up scene. Peake recently starred in the black-and-white "Metalhead" episode of Netflix's "Black Mirror", which is where some people might recognize her from, even though she has been in many films before this. Set against the backdrop of the 70s/80s comedy club circuit in Northern England, Funny Cow stars Peake as fictional comedienne "Funny Cow", trying making a name for herself in the stand up world. The full cast includes Paddy Considine, Christine Bottomley, Stephen Graham, Alun Armstrong, Tony Pitts, Hannah Walters, and Kevin Eldon. This film actually looks quite good.
