Despite the new name for Kevin Smith’s buddy cop flick lending itself to not-so-creative puns if the film does poorly, the buzz around it has been – you know – the exact same size buzz for every other Kevin Smith film.
So, pretty big.
Audiences will see for the first time the director taking on someone else’s script, and he’s got Bruce Willis, Tracy Morgan, and Seann William Scott batting for him.
Buzz and speculation aside, here’s the first real look at the film through the eyes of its marketing team:
So…yeah. A lot of Tracy Morgan saying Tracy Morgan things, and Bruce Willis growling out lines. A fantastic introduction there in the trailer, but nothing that really gives an idea of the story. Granted that it’s tough to make jokes land outside the context of the movie (in the short span of a trailer), most of this stuff is pretty average.
The trailer is as tepid as room-temperature tap water, but I’m still holding out hope that Cop Out will deliver some pants-wettingly good comedy.
What do you think, sucka?
