Tuesday Trailers: 8/4/09 by Barbecue Bros

A Serious Man – The next Coen Brothers movie. Enough said.

Fantastic Mr. Fox – The animation for this looks like nothing I can recall ever seeing. And of course, its Wes Anderson with a great voice cast that includes George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, and Jason Schwartzman. Based on the book by Roald Dahl.

Hot Tub Time Machine – Completely ridiculous premise and stars John Cusack, Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry and Clark Duke. And according to IMDb, Chevy Chase, Crispin Glover, Lizzy Kaplan and Kate Walsh also star. I’m mostly interested to see if Clark Duke doesn’t completely piss me off. FYI NSFW red ban trailer you guys.
