Coming Soon - Here Comes The Summer

So I'm gonna do my usual thing of banging together a load of YouTube trailers into a few posts. There's plenty I'm looking forward to over the next few months, not least Wes Anderson's new one on Friday, I also haven't seen The Raid yet, but here's what else is on my radar.

Men In Black 3 - dir. Barry Sonnenfeld 
Starring: Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Jemaine Clement



Now this can go either way, but there should be enough laughs and moments to keep everybody content. Very impressed by the casting, the film is populated by people I like a lot, including Clement (obviously too busy with this to sneak into the Muppet movie), Michael Stuhlbarg, David Rasche and Bill Hader.

The Watch - dir. Akiva Schaffer
Starring: Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Richard Ayoade



Written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and directed by one third of The Lonely Island and co-starring the genius that is Richard Ayoade, this comedy sees a neighbourhood watch take on an alien invasion, so seems to be the vulgar older brother of MIB

The Campaign - dir. Jay Roach
Starring: Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Sudeikis



Political comedy just in time for the US Presidential elections, from the director of Meet The Parents, what could go wrong, hopefully nothing. Galifianakis's character of Marty Huggins seems very similar to his "brother" Seth from his Live at The Purple Onion DVD which continues to crack me up.

The Five-Year Engagement - dir. Nicholas Stoller
Starring: Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Chris Pratt, Alison Brie, Jacki Weaver



The team behind Forgetting Sarah Marshall reunite for this rom-com which hopefully justifies its long running time, nearly 2 hours, you're a comedy don't forget.


More to follow over the next few days.......
