Trailer Double Header
Here's a duo of trailers that have a few things in common. Big name Oscar favored directors, oddly pieced together casts, and a surprising amount of comedy for their respected directors. That was sort of confusing. Anyway, above is the trailer for Sam Mendes' (American Beauty, Revolutionary Road) Away We Go starring SNL's Maya Rudolph, The Office's Jon Krasinski and a host of others. Below is a first look at Ang Lee's (Brokeback Mountain, The Ice Storm) Taking Woodstock with comedian Demetri Martin, Emile Hirsch, Imelda Staunton, etc. See? For directors who could likely have their pick of the A-List, they're taking some chances that could definitely open up a few careers.
Both films are slated for summer release.
