Robert Downey Jr in Tropic Thunder

I am beginning to think that Ben Stiller’s upcoming flick Tropic Thunder is more of a character study on the egotistical nature of Hollywood — wrapped in a big flour tortilla of hilarity. Yes, this big chunky Chipolte burrito of action and comedy is coming, and why shouldn’t we be excited?

I can’t think of a reason, lets go to the brand new international trailer, which was released via the film’s UK site late last evening.

Lets discuss this film for a moment — I would like to break it down for you. What we have are, as I mentioned before, ingredients for success similar to a thick, beefy burrito. We have the meat — director and star Ben Stiller and his cohorts, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., Steve Coogan, Jay Baruchel and Danny McBride. We also have the veggies and the beans, action and comedy. Add a little hot sauce, the irreverant nature of the film, which takes shots at big Hollywood personalities. And to top it all off we have the cheese: Nick Nolte as a crazy, war-torn veteran. Yes, this is a recipe for success — one that is sure to leave us satisfied, and also ready for a nap. But don’t worry, the nap comes afterward.

Tropic Thunder hits theaters on August 15, 2008.
