I don’t want to come off as a letch or nothin’, but this red-band international trailer for Nicholas Stoller’s Forgetting Sarah Marshall attains Last Tango in Paris levels of greatness at the 1.31 mark. Get the butter.
I know there were some eyebrows raised when Forgetting Sarah Marshall moved off its May 30th release date for April 18th, but look at it this way: that’s the same weekend Hot Fuzz hit in ’07. And while Judd Apatow is a formidable brand name nowadays, what’s the point of releasing a romantic comedy (starring Jason Segel) on the same day as Sex and the City: We’re All on Valtrex? If they were camping out on the last weekend of April like Splitting Heirs, then I’d worry. But getting a two week head start on the May onslaught – where it’ll counterprogram nicely against the likes of Iron Man, Speed Racer and Prince Caspian – is just smart business.
Best of all, this international trailer is much funnier than the kinda okay domestic trailer. Actually, it is the domestic trailer, but with lots of naughty stuff thrown in (which means Carla Gallo makes an appearance). And Empire’s got it all for your play/pause enjoyment. “Hi.”
