Tropic Thunder: The RedBand version

By Matt Van Hoven 

For anyone who isn’t familiar with RedBand trailers, they’re basically the adult version of what you see on TV. This means increased gore, cursing and maybe the occasional nip-slip. RedBand speaks the truth and gives us what we want in an ad (trailer). But does it give away too much of the final product?

Well not so much in this case, but I was talking with a friend of mine and we agree that the RB trailers trump anything made for TV broadcast.

We hear Tom Cruise will be making an appearance (this is not new by any means) at some point, and as you’ll see in the trailer there’s lots of referential comedy. I especially like the Eddie Murphy rip.

Reminds me &#151 there’s a new Murphy flick coming out called Meet Dave. Yet another shitty-looking piece by the once leather-clad comedian. Ugh, makes me shudder just thinking about it.
