It just doesn’t make sense. We feel like we’re watching the Jack the Giant Slayer trailer all over again! The new trailer for upcoming monster flick Pacific Rim has a multitude of elements that suggest it should be one hot sloppy Transformers 8-looking mess. The monsters are called “the Kaiju”? Uh…huh. The giant robots are called “Jaegers? Yikes. The government sends bipedal robo-soldiers to fight alien beasts when humans are probably the easiest things in the world to push over? Think about it! Why don’t they just bomb them? Despite all these issues and more, Pacific Rim somehow looks logic-defyingly excellent. We knew there had to be a good reason the movie studios don’t ask us to vet their film ideas. Now we know. Occasionally, we would be wrong.
Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the excellent Charlie Day and Christopher Meloni co-star in the film. And yes, we know director Guillermo del Toro is a boss from films like Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy. Hopefully del Toro has the same magic touch on his upcoming Incredible Hulk TV show. We cannot even begin to tell you how that won’t work. First of all, Bruce Banner’s hair always looks so dumb when he switches to the Hulk. Second of all…
These bosses are clearly not getting any better! The Horrible Bosses red band trailer is out, and if you were wondering how dark they were going to go with the film, the answer is: very. Between Jamie Foxx‘s character name reveals to surprise water sports to Charlie Day calling out Jennifer Aniston‘s character for being, well, a soulless sexual predator, the raunchier version makes the original Horrible Bosses trailer look like a walk in the park. Sure, it might have been a park crawling with monstrous people with awful combovers, but at least when you got home from the park no one had put down a tarp and peed on your loveseat. And that’s something, right?
We’re so used to Hollywood trying to sell us MTV Movie Award nominee Jennifer Aniston as the girl next door or career woman looking for love, we forgot about the roles that really let her shine: total creeps. Even Friends’ Rachel was more of a flinty jerk than anything Jen has touched on the big screen. As the Horrible Bosses trailer demonstrates, Aniston steals the show as a perverted dentist out to sexually harass the scrubs off her dental assistant. Co-starring with Jamie Foxx, Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and It’s Always Sunny‘s Charlie Day, Jen joins Kevin Spacey and a comb over-ed Colin Farrell to form a group of bosses you would kill to get away from…literally. Makes you think twice about getting all those wisdom teeth removed.
We irrationally love Drew Barrymore – she’s battled demons, dated rock stars and always has a hairstyle we covet. Sure, she’s no Meryl Streep but she always makes fun movies, and she produced Donnie Darko so we have some respect. We just want her to be happy, and she always looks thrilled whenever she’s with her on-again-off-again boyfriend Justin Long. The two walked the red carpet for their new flick, Going The Distance and oh, how our hearts were warmed to see them looking cozy and adorable together. Is it too much to ask that these kids make it work? (If only so we can use our new nickname for them: BarryMacGuy.)
They were joined by Ã‚Â their co-stars Christina Applegate, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis at Grauman’s Chinese Theater last night for the premiere of the film, check out our gallery of all the stars below.
