The Sitter is David Gordon Green‘s film that is being called an R-rated Adventures in Babysitting, and this is the second red-band trailer we’ve seen for the movie. This one has a little less sex and a lot more general mayhem as Jonah Hill plays a young jerkwad who takes a babysitting job and then drags the kids around Manhattan with him as he attempts to get laid. Check out the trailer below, if you can do so without fear that it will make you too familiar with many of the movie’s jokes. (There’s always the all-ages trailer if you want something less revealing.) Read More »

Fans of David Gordon Green‘s early work can breathe a sigh of relief. After making his name with well-received dramas like George Washington and All the Real Girls, the director took a sharp left turn into R-rated comedy in 2008 with the stoner flick Pineapple Express. He’s stayed in funny territory ever since, helming Your Highness, the upcoming The Sitter, and episodes of HBO’s Eastbound and Down.
But Green will finally be making a return to more serious fare with his next feature. Columbia is reportedly in final talks to acquire the film rights to Evan Mandery‘s time-traveling love story Q, with Green on board to write and direct. More details after the jump.

Over a year after we first heard about it, Danny McBride‘s comedy Bullies is finally coming together. Commercial director Randy Krallman has closed a deal to helm the feature, which will be his first. Krallman is the creative mind behind those ubiquitous E*Trade baby ads and has won several accolades for his work, including the Clio. In addition, the project is expected to begin casting shortly. More details after the jump.

If the new slimmed down, Serious Actor version of Jonah Hill confounds you, don’t fret — The Sitter sees Hill returning to the familiar role of pudgy funnyman as Noah Jaybird, a layabout who gets roped into babysitting a trio of bratty kids. Described as cross between Adventures in Babysitting and Superbad, David Gordon Green‘s comedy follows Noah and his charges as they embark on a wild night, crossing paths with a pair of psychotic dealers (Sam Rockwell and J.B. Smoove), a horny young lady (Ari Graynor), and various other unsavory characters. Needless to say, the evening does not go well, especially for poor Noah.
A new red-band TV spot shows Noah getting smashed up in all sorts of ways by various people, while an international poster demonstrates the film’s racier side. Check out both after the jump. (Warning: The former is NSFW for language; the latter is technically SFW, but is probably the kind of thing your boss wouldn’t be thrilled to see on your computer screen at work.)

Patton Oswalt is set to take his biggest film role since starring in Big Fan in an as-yet untitled comedy from Todd Rohal, director of The Catechism Cataclysm. The new film (“an outlandish yet poignant comedy,” says the press release) will feature Oswalt and Johnny Knoxville as “a pair of battling brothers who attempt to honor their ailing father by taking a troop of boys on a last ditch camping trip that goes wildly wrong.” Read More »

A few days ago, we posted a red-band trailer for David Gordon Green‘s The Sitter, and several of you complained about the very NSFW audio that opens the trailer. I’m not sure why so many of you are watching movie trailers with the volume turned all the way up in your offices and classrooms — do your bosses really not care if you watch trailers all day as long as they’re SFW? If so, lucky you — but rest assured that you can crank this new green-band version up at top volume without risking the wrath of your superiors and colleagues.
Starring Jonah Hill, the “Adventures in Babysitting meets Superbad” comedy follows a lazy young man who gets roped into babysitting for a family friend. Naturally, one thing leads to another, and our feckless hero and his young charges find themselves on a wild ride that includes psychotic drug dealers (Sam Rockwell and J.B. Smoove), a sexy and willing young woman (Ari Graynor), at least one crazy car chase, and some punches in the face. Watch the trailer after the jump.

20th Century Fox has released a red band movie trailer for David Gordon Green‘s Jonah Hill comedy The Sitter. The film has been described as Adventures in Babysitting meets Superbad, and the story follows a suspended college student named Noah who gets talked into baby-sitting the eccentric kids next door — two boys and a wild 8-year-old girl.
A couple years ago, I had a chance to read an early draft I read was pretty great. The Adventures in Babysitting comparison is good, as it is basically an R-rated version of that film. And you’ll see a taste of that in this uncensored trailer. I should also note that the trailer features a one-minute introduction from Hill, alongside the film’s child cast saying, as you might imagine, completely inappropriate things. If you just want to see the trailer, you can fast forward to the 1:20 mark. Watch it now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Graph the trajectory of director David Gordon Green’s career and you’ll probably get a linear, downward slope, where the X-axis is “Time” and the Y-axis is “How Highbrow His Movies Are.” Once known for atmospheric drama/thrillers like Undertow and Snow Angels, Green hit the big time with the stoner comedy Pineapple Express. His latest film, Your Highness, arrives in theaters today and seems to represent Green’s deepening exploration into base, gross-out humor and violence.
Did Your Highness thrill you with its medieval adventures? Did it make you laugh with its horrible accents and its anachronistic banter between stars James Franco and Danny McBride? Let us know in the comments, and assume SPOILERS lie after the break.
