I’m sure that some other poor film website readers will watch this trailer just to ogle Mila Kunis for one second. But not you, dear reader! As an FSR regular, you will most likely be noting the subtle satirical undertones, the ribald wit, and the irony that Mike Judge has made a workplace comedy from the point of view of the boss while ogling Mila Kunis.
This final trailer is not a bad push over the ledge for the movie. And, hell, I’m just happy to see some actual, real-life marketing for a Mike Judge movie. I have a slight feeling that Extract might just out-pace Idiocracy by a nose.
As someone who’s seen the film, but can’t exactly talk about it at length, I do have to say that this trailer needs more Affleck.
I also couldn’t have ever guessed that I would say something like that without a frightening man holding a .35 to my temple and forcing me to read a teleprompter. I also can’t imagine a scenario where that would happen unless it’s a post-apocalyptic world where Ben Affleck really cares an awful lot about what yahoos on the internet think. In this brave new world, we will all march toward Las Vegas to see who will take over as King after Elvis dies. And Affleck will be vying for that number one spot.
Mike Judge has made a believer of me. Damn you, Affleck! Watch the trailer below, courtesy of Apple.
It actually showcases a pretty solid tone for the movie. It’s a tough situation dealt with by a man who continually gets more crap piled upon him as the day goes by. A few bad decisions later, and he’s in deeper with only a pretty girl and a failing marriage to pull himself out of the rubble.
As you probably already know, the film stars Jason Bateman, Mila Kunis, and Kristen Wiig. And Affleck.
What do you think? Did you get the Six String Samurai reference? Don’t lie.
