Well here it is, the full trailer for Ben Stiller’s upcoming Vietnam war comedy Tropic Thunder. I like Ben Stiller a lot, despite the fact that I don’t think he has done anything all that great in the past few years (Night at the Museum was the highest grossing movie of his career, however). That said, something about a ‘nam spoof just seems a little stale and dated if you ask me.
I guess Tropic Thunder might be a bit different because it’s actually a parody of the making of a war movie, not just a straight up parody of a war movie. I will say that the casting of Robert Downey Jr. as an actor in blackface is genius. Other than that, I’m adopting a “wait and see” approach on this one. At the very least there’s a great cast that also includes Jack Black, Jay Baruchel, Bill Hader, Danny McBride and Steve Coogan, among others. Tropic Thunder hits theatres on August 15th; check out the trailer below.» Related Link: Yahoo!: Tropic Thunder trailer
