The red-band trailer for Peter Farrelly‘s Movie 43 leaned hard on the shock factor of seeing big Hollywood stars revel in foul language and filthy jokes, but the poor green-band trailer is stuck trying to sell the exact same product by only hinting at what the NSFW version could actually show. Is Anna Faris asking Chris Pratt to take a dump on her still comedy gold when the word “poop” has to be substituted with a fart noise? Is Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts bullying their own kid still shocking when they have to keep their behavior G-rated?

Eh, truthfully, I think the answer is that none of this looked all that outrageous to begin with. But at least it’s not any less funny than it was before. Hit the jump to see Hugh Jackman, Gerard ButlerKate Winslet, Halle Berry, Stephen MerchantEmma Stone, Kristen Bell, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Duhamel, Terrence Howard, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloë Grace Moretz, Seann William Scott, Jason Sudeikis, Kristen BellRichard Gere, and so, so, so many more celebs in the new SFW trailer.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

Universal Pictures has released a new featurette for Edgar Wright‘s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Based on the comic book series written by Bryan Lee O’Malley, Scott Pilgrim tells the story of a charming and jobless 22-year-old who must defeat his new girlfriend’s seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to win her heart. The new two and a half minute featurette focuses on the fantastical comic book world of the movie, and the film’s crazy hybrid storyline. Watch it now embedded after the jump.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

We’ve seen a teaser and a full trailer for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Edgar Wright‘s adaptation of the graphic novel series by Bryan Lee O’Malley. Now there’s an international trailer that sells the tale of Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) a bass player and sorta-slacker who falls for Ramona Flowers (Mary-Elizabeth Winstead) but must defeat her seven evil exes before they can truly be together. Lots of new footage in this one, including a good look at Brandon Routh. Read More »

Scott Pilgrim

Universal Pictures has released the first full-length movie trailer for Edgar Wright‘s upcoming action-comedy Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Based on the comic book series written by Bryan Lee O’Malley, Pilgrim tells the story of a charming and jobless 22-year-old who must defeat his new girlfriend’s seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to win her heart. The new trailer will be attached to Get Him To The Greek, but has been put online once the Scott Pilgrim facebook page reached 100,000 fans (which happened at 1:30am on Monday morning).

The new trailer is pretty awesome, and has me even more excited about the film than the initial teaser. The only thing I didn’t like was the lame “it’s on like Donkey Kong” tagline which I’m sure was the “genius” idea of the Universal’s marketing team. Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

How awesome was the teaser trailer for Edgar Wright‘s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World? I know I’ve watched it at least six times now. I’m surprised at how many cool visuals Edgar and Universal were able to cram into under 90 seconds. There is certainly a lot of cool visuals which are worth pressing the pause button to examine at length. Check out all 66 screencaps, after the jump. Click on through to see the images in high (near 2000 pixels wide) resolution.

Brett Ratner

Relativity Media announced today that Peter Farrelly (of the famous comedy directing team The Farrelly Brothers), Brett Ratner, actress Elizabeth Banks, Bob Odenkirk and Griffin Dunne (The Accidental Husband) are directing a sketch comedy feature film. More directors are expected to be announced shortly. Originally set up at Overture Films, the yet-to-be-titled comedy project takes a unifying storyline for a series of sketch comedies in the vein of the 1970s hits Kentucky Fried Movie and Groove Tube. Not much more is known about the premise.

The growing cast includes Elizabeth Banks, Gerard Butler, Kieran Culkin, Hugh Jackman, Johnny Knoxville, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloe Moretz, Liev Schreiber, Sean William Scott, Tony Shalhoub, Emma Stone, Matt Walsh, Patrick Warburton, Naomi Watts, and Kate Winslet. The producers will announce additional cast members as further deals are solidified, and production will continue thru late May 2010.

I expect that we’ll be seeing more and more movies like this after the success of Valentine’s Day, which was able to cram an impressive ensemble cast into a modestly budgeted romantic comedy. And a Sketch movie allows you to cram even more stars and directors into a two hour feature for a low cost and time commitment. You can read the full press release after the jump.

Also, after the jump, we have the film’s first studio released plot synopsis.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World has finally entered principal photography today and, true to form, the long lens brigade have cracked off a few snapshots of the cast. Canadian Tabloids have pictures of Michael Cera as Pilgrim, Kieran Culkin as Wallace Wells, Chris Evans as Lucas Lee and Alison Pill as Kim Pine. None of them are actually in character in any of the shots (well, I’m guessing not – does Cera strike you as being method?) but they are in costume, with hair and makeup done and that’s the best we’ve been given yet. (Editor’s Note: The photos have been removed)

There’s a little look at each of them below the break (and I do mean little) as well as details of Dakota Fanning‘s apparent casting in the movie.
