Access Hollywood has the movie trailer for Forgetting Sarah Marshall, the new Judd Apatow-produced comedy. From Undeclared screenwriter Nicholas Stoller, comes the story of Peter Bretter (Jason Segel), who takes a Hawaii vacation in order to deal with recent break-up with his TV star girlfriend, Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell). Little does he know Sarah’s traveling to the same resort as her ex… and she’s bringing along her new boyfriend. The film also features Apatow regulars Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd and Bill Hader.
Apatow is still riding high having produced a streak of popular and critically acclaimed comedies (40-Year-Old-Virgin, Knocked Up, Superbad, Walk Hard). I think everyone is waiting for him to produce a clunker, but it just isn’t happening. If Apatow’s name wasn’t attached to this film I don’t even think I would be interested. I was at the SuperBad premiere screening at Comic Con 2007 when Apatow and crew premiered the trailer for Walk Hard. Everyone I talked to thought it looked like crap.And up until I had seen the red band trailer two weeks ago, I had no faith in the movie what-so-ever. And while I’m not able to review the film until Friday, I will say that I was soooo wrong. So don’t judge the book by the cover on this one (or the movie by the trailer) because one thing is for sure, Judd needs to hire a better editor to cut these previews.
Watch the trailer below.
