Trailer Blazer: 'War, Inc.'
You know when you’re at the movies, and after each trailer you see, you turn to the friend sitting next to you and say either yes, no, or maybe? (Or, is that just my movie buddy Karen and I?) War, Inc. is a definite yes. You’ve got John Cusack playing a comically morose hitman, a scene-stealing Joan Cusack yelling at him, and a story looking like it delivers: John Cusack, who co-wrote the script, is hired by a private corporation — run by a former U.S. Vice President (Dan Aykroyd) — that has occupied the country of Turaqistan and needs a Middle East oil minister to disappear. Somehow, his cover involves planning the wedding of Yonica Babyyeah (Hilary Duff), a Middle Eastern pop star who isn’t afraid to put a scorpion down her pants (young-starlet-grows-up alert!), and wooing a journalist (Marisa Tomei).
Yes, no, or maybe?
