Trailer Trash: Crazy, Stupid, Love

Time to root through some trailers. What sorts of wonderful things will be alluded to today?

Steve Carrell, at least to me, doesn't get the proper amount of props as a dramatic actor that he should. Sure, he's most well known for not getting laid for forty years and for inviting Christina Applegate to the "pants party", but he can do serious stuff when called upon. Look at Little Miss Sunshine. Hell, look at Dan In Real Life. 

Anyway, he looks to be tapping into the dramatic well for Crazy, Stupid, Love, a rom-com with seemingly darker aspirations. Sure, it's a plot we've seen in countless flicks, but the cast included suggests something a bit more mature. Sure, we have Carrell, and we have Emma Stone. But, we also have Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Marisa Tomei, and Kevin Bacon. A cast that strong certainly has me intrigued.

What did I think of the trailer? Uh... they played one of Muse's best songs in it. Of course I loved it. I'm just wondering if the "Muse Trailer Music" curse that sunk Knight and Day and The Tourist will have any effect on this. We'll just have to wait and see.


  1. Love the cast for this. Glad to see Ryan Gosling in a comedy for once, this sounds like a better rom-com than usual.

  2. Yeah, what Castor said. And what you said about Muse. Mmmmm....Muse in trailers. You could find a great Muse song for just about every trailer.

    When are they gonna score/do the soundtrack for an entire film, a la Daft Punk, Chem Bros, etc. That'd be pretty fucking sweet...

  3. @Castor: I agree. I think, after All Good Things and Blue Valentine, he wanted to do something a bit more lighthearted. Not that we're complaining.

    @Dylan: I think they were tapped to score Clash of the Titans, which would have made that movie bearable. I don't know though. They'll need something really awesome and epic to work with though. They aren't exactly known for being restrained, now are they?
