Alright, so the first trailer for Kevin Smith’s Cop Out was kind of a flop. Despite the promising pairing of Bruce Willis with Tracy Morgan, it failed to deliver many laughs, and left a lot of people wondering how this movie’s screenplay by Robb and Mark Cullen could have possibly been such a hot commodity in Hollywood. There was really only one hope left for the film, and that was the possibility that all of the funny stuff was actually rated R, and thus not suitable for a green band trailer.
Well, now it’s reckoning time, because a red band trailer for Cop Out has just arrived over on MySpace. And you know what? I think this thing might still be salvageable. It certainly doesn’t seem all that clever, and most of the jokes are pretty juvenile, but it’s a heck of a lot funnier than the first trailer we saw. If you ask me, this movie is all on Tracy Morgan’s shoulders. If he can deliver the weirdness and unpredictability that he is known for, this could actually be worth watching. Check out the red band trailer after the jump and see if you agree. Cop Out hits theatres on February 26th.
