Trailer Blazer: 'Bee Movie,' 'Evan Almighty,' 'Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny'
Bee Movie (Nov. 2, 2007): Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock play bugs on a windshield in a movie-within-a-movie. Come again? This trailer is brilliant. It’s actually one long clip instead of a chopped-up trailer, and each time I watch it I find something new to cackle at — namely, every cut to Eddie Izzard as the alternatingly indifferent and masochistic director.
Evan Almighty (June 22, 2007): Steve Carell’s anchorman character from Bruce Almighty, Evan Baxter, has to build an ark because God (obviously Morgan Freeman) tells him to. If seeing animals performing tasks usually relegated to humans doesn’t freak you out like it does for me, see this movie!
Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny (Nov. 22) Jack Black stars in yet another film involving him screeching into a microphone half the time. Black and Kyle Gass are clearly channeling Bill & Ted, but with special-er effects. I liked when they fell down a shaft in a giant Tetris-like container. Be sure to watch both trailers for the maximum “epic” experience.
