'Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2' Trailer: The Sequel America Demanded

Kevin James' 2009 comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop was never supposed to be a hit. The film opened in the dregs of the movie schedule, January, had no real stars outside of James and sported one of the most joke worthy titles in recent memory. What was the result? Almost $150 million in domestic box office. And in a era where international grosses mean everything, Paul Blart only did $37 million overseas. Yes, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 is a movie America demanded with their hard earned dollars. It's scheduled for release April 17, 2015 and the first trailer is now out. Below, watch the Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 trailer.

Thanks to Sony, here's the first Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 trailer:

As you can tell from the trailer, this time James' character heads to Las Vegas for a Security Guard Expo with his daughter. At the same time, some master criminals decide to pull an Ocean's Eleven and robs all the casinos up and down the strip. I bet you can't guess who is going to be forced to take them down.

I look at a movie like Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 very simply. It's not for me, much like a movie like Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice is not for everyone. Many people would watch that movie and hate it. Be bored by it, not laugh, not understand what the filmmaker is going for. But I love it. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 is like that for me. Sometimes you just have to remember that everyone's different and everyone gets movies made for them. There's little doubt Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 is going to be a big hit, just maybe not with someone who didn't see the first one.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 is directed by Andy Fickman. It co-stars Molly Shannon, Neal McDonough, Daniella Alonso, David Henrie and Raini Rodriguez. What do you think of the Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 trailer?
