Trailer Watch: Bill Murray in St. Vincent

Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd, and Naomi Watts star in writer-director Ted Melfi’s St. Vincent, about a grumpy old man (Murray) who befriends the neighbor kid. There are a lot of familiar tropes in this story, but the dialogue and the cast seem solid enough to get past that. (Or at least it earned a few laughs from me.)

St. Vincent opens on October 24, 2014.

Trailer Watch: Judd Apatow’s This Is 40 theatrical trailer

I’ve been on board with This Is 40 since its announcement, because Pete and Debbie (Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann) were the best part of Knocked Up. Its teaser trailer was pretty good, but the theatrical trailer is flat-out great — funny, warm, and smart — and it probably speaks to me a little, because I’m only a few years away from 40.

Leslie Mann, Paul Rudd, Albert Brooks, Jason Segel, Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) and Megan Fox star in the December 21st release.
