Earlier tonight I was having a conversation with Peter from /Film, and at no point did he once mention that there was a red band trailer released for Kevin Smith’s upcoming comedy Cop Out. He let me talk about the last party of Sundance, all of my feelings and my deepest darkest secrets, and all the while this trailer was hanging out there — posted to Slashfilm.com. That guy is dead to me.
Which leads me to something fun — the red band trailer for Kevin Smith’s upcoming film Cop Out. Unlike the standard trailer, this one brings the cursing, brings the dick jokes and brings some Tracy Morgan-on-kid violence. Hey, I’d take a kid down if he did that to me, too. For more insight into what I’m talking about, check out the new red band Cop Out trailer below. The film stars Morgan and Bruce Willis as a couple of partners who are having a really rough day. It’s the first film that Kevin Smith has directed that was not based on a screenplay that he wrote. Instead, this is from the minds of Robb and Mark Cullen.
Cop Out is in theaters February 26, 2010.
Directed by Kevin Smith (“Zack and Miri Make a Porno”), “Cop Out” features two longtime NYPD partners on the trail of a stolen, rare, mint-condition baseball card who find themselves up against a merciless, memorabilia-obsessed gangster. Jimmy (Bruce Willis) is the veteran detective whose missing collectible is his only hope to pay for his daughter’s upcoming wedding, and Paul (Tracy Morgan) is his “partner-against-crime” whose preoccupation with his wife’s alleged infidelity makes it hard for him to keep his eye on the ball.
Kevin Smith directs “Cop Out” from a screenplay by Robb Cullen & Mark Cullen (TV’s “Las Vegas”). The film stars Bruce Willis (the “Die Hard” films), Tracy Morgan (TV’s “30 Rock”), Adam Brody (“Mr. & Mrs. Smith”), Kevin Pollak (“Tropic Thunder”), Guillermo Diaz (TV’s “Weeds”) and Seann William Scott (“Role Models”).
The film is produced by Marc Platt (“Rachel Getting Married”), Polly Johnsen (upcoming “Cats and Dogs: Revenge of Kitty Galore”) and Michael Tadross (“I Am Legend,” “Hitch”). Adam Siegel (“Wanted”), Robb Cullen and Mark Cullen serve as executive producers.
The behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography David A. Klein (“Zack and Miri Make a Porno,” “Chasing Amy”); production designer Michael Shaw (“August Rush,” “Boys Don’t Cry”); costume designer Juliet Polcsa (“The Sopranos,” “Jersey Girl”); and Academy Award®-nominated composer Harold Faltermeyer (the “Beverly Hills Cop” movies). As he frequently does, Smith serves as his own editor on the film.
Warner Bros. Pictures presents, A Marc Platt Production, “Cop Out,” to be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. The film is scheduled for release on February 26, 2010.
