I’ve been anxious to see a proper trailer for the upcoming Harold Ramis comedy Year One (is it Year One or The Year One? IMDb says “The”), since the Super Bowl teaser was basically just a clip from the movie. This movie takes place during biblical times with Jack Black and Michael Cera playing members of a primitive tribe in search of something more. They set off on an “ancient road trip”, before eventually running into those pesky Romans.
While I’ve never been all that interested in a spoof of The Bible, the first full trailer for Year One reveals just how loosely they are playing with this concept. Black, Cera and the many other familiar faces are basically just playing themselves in loincloths. While I’m sure some will find this unappealing, personally I think it looks absolutely hilarious. A lot of the humour seems improvised and completely off the wall, and Black and Cera definitely seem to have good chemistry together. What do you think, is this going to be the best comedy of the summer? Year One hits theatres on June 19th.
