Trailer Watch: Martin McDonagh’s Seven Psychopaths trailer

Martin McDonagh (In Bruges) is finally back with another black comedy. This one, Seven Psychopaths, is about “a struggling screenwriter (Colin Farrell) who inadvertently becomes entangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his oddball friends (Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell) kidnap a gangster’s (Woody Harrelson) beloved Shih Tzu.” The premise is a little goofy, but with these three guys in the lead, how could I not be on board?

Abbie Cornish, Tom Waits, Olga Kurylenko and Zeljko Ivanek co-star in the October 12th release.

Trailer Watch: Jonah Hill in The Sitter (red band)

From IGN comes the trailer for the new David Gordon Green comedy, The Sitter, starring Jonah Hill, Sam Rockwell, Max Records, Kevin Hernandez, Landry Bender, J.B. Smoove and Method Man. I didn’t see Your Highness, but this R-rated riff on the Adventures in Babysitting mold is another head-scratcher for the former director of ponderous, Terrence Malick-esque films like All the Real Girls and George Washington… but at least it’s kind of funny.

The Sitter hits theaters on December 9, 2011, where it probably hopes to bring in the people (like me) who get sick to death of all the rampant consumerism and saccharine “Christmas” shit going on that time of year.
