Snoop Dogg is best known as a rapper, but he’s had a couple small roles in films before, and he’s always had a unique sort of charisma that seems like it would lend itself to acting. It was probably only a matter of time before somebody took a chance on him in something other than a cameo where he plays himself or a role in something like Soul Plane. And it looks like that chance will come in the form of an upcoming biopic of blues musician Clarence Sims The Legend of Fillmore Slim. Sims’s story is an interesting one because not only was he a prominent blues musician in the 60s and 70s, but he was also a big time pimp in the San Francisco area during the same time. In addition to his stage name of “Fillmore Slim” Sims was also referred to by monikers such as “The West Coast Godfather of the Game” and “The Pope of Pimping.” If I told you that those were names of Snoop Dogg albums instead, you’d probably believe me, so the rapper’s attachment to this film suddenly starts to make even more sense.

Like all good advertising should, the trailer for The Big Bang works as a pretty epic little ride all by itself. During it’s first moments it feels like you’re being plopped right down in a moody detective story. All of the elements are there; some missing diamonds, a missing girl. It seems like an advertisement for a pretty straightforward film. But then things start getting weird. You’ve got an underground military compound that looks like the hadron collider, Snoop Dogg directing pornos, Sam Elliott with a ridiculously long head of hair extensions, and a lot of heady talk about the origins of the universe. The story seems like some sort of marriage of the works of Elmore Leonard and Tom Robbins. And this is all crammed in to just 2 minutes of footage. I can’t imagine the weird places the film must go given its entire runtime; but now I want to. And that’s the key to crafting a good film trailer, capturing people’s imaginations.

As I mentioned last night when I wrote about the new Scott Pilgrim vs. the World clip, I didn’t watch a moment of the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. However, I am told that a few interesting and fun things happened. Tom Cruise out-dressed Jennifer Lopez, Twilight out-awarded its Summit Entertainment cousin The Hurt Locker, and the always funny Ken Jeong out-dressed both Katy Perry and Christina Aguilera. Not bad for the movie world equivalent of the Special Olympics.
