Up first this week is the trailer for April’s The Mutant Chronicles. I’m not really sure what this one is about, but it looks like a mix between Judge Dredd, Saving Private Ryan, and the Walter M. Miller novel, A Canticle for Leibowitz, which really puts the kaibosh on my screenplay, Judge Dredd Saves Private Leibowitz. No. That’s horrible. It really puts the kaibosh on my screenplay, Judge Dredd Sav— dammit!
Next up we’ve got the trailer for Franklyn, starring Ryan Phillippe. In this one, Phillippe plays a giant Tootsie Roll Pop that’s covered with toilet paper and looks like a ghost for Halloween. And that’s about it.
Lastly, we have the international teaser for Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian. When asked about why he felt the need to film a sequel, Ben Stiller said, “Budget cuts forced us to slash the fun and excitement out of the original. And, well, we all just kind of felt like we could do better.” Unfortunately, budget cuts have forced the producers to dramatically downsize both the fun and excitement of the sequel. All of it. This movie’s going to be horrible.
