telling minor stories to avoid a major one

Tuesday Trailers: 8/25/09 by Barbecue Bros

“Curb Your Enthusiasm” – The brief, 30 second teaser for season 7. Nothing about the “Seinfeld” reunion though, just what I imagine is a fairly normal Larry David moment.

Youth In Revolt – Michael Cera playing the Michael Cera role, but with an alter-ego.

Capitalism: A Love Story – Michael Moore’s latest film. And yea, it uses “Paper Planes” in the trailer.

Inception – The teaser for the next Christopher Nolan film due summer 2010 that appears to be somewhat influenced by The Matrix. Stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe, Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Tom Hardy and Michael Caine.

I don’t watch the show religiously, but I’m pretty excited about the new season of CYE.

The Michael Cera film looks hilarious, imo.

Michael Moore just seems to get more and more like how he was portrayed in Team America.

The Inception trailer is terrible. It doesn’t show anything. I bet the movie will be good (Leo!), but they have to be able to do better than that.

Before seeing your actual response, I would have imagined you were solely going to comment on the use of Bon Jovi in the Youth in Revolt trailer.
For me up to and including that point, the trailer wasn’t doing it for me. It definitely got better with the intro of the alter-ego.

Inception is just a teaser trailer, so you can’t expect too much from it. I’m guessing they aren’t far enough into production to have a proper trailer at this point, since the movie is due next summer.

Of course the Bon Jovi usage leaves a bad taste in my mouth, but it fits in the trailer. That also is the most tolerable Bon Jovi song, thanks to Blake Lewis’ awesome interpretation (
