Sony Pictures has recently released it’s first trailer for Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, starring Will Ferrell. Click the picture above to check it out. Now I am sure that there will be more influential and moving epics of 2006, but this one stands out as the early favorite for the best “wet your pants” funny flick of the year. It is the story of Nascar driver Ricky Bobby, played by Ferrell. Yes, you read that right. His name really is Ricky Bobby. And what Ricky Bobby lacks in the ability to decipher quantum physics he all but makes up for in his ability to drive a race car. Ferrell is directed by fellow Anchorman creator Adam McKay and the film co-stars the immensely talented John C. Reilly. This gives us something more than Oliver Stone’s World Trade Center and Kevin Smith’s Clerks 2 to look forward to in August.
