‘Simpsons’ teaser trailer is recycled humor

There’s a new teaser trailer out for the film version of The Simpsons. It starts out by poking fun at its own unsophisticated animation, which is what the South Park guys did in 1999 with the teaser trailer for their film. Then we see Homer getting pummeled between a rock and a hard place. There’s still no confirmed plot for the movie, although at one point James L. Brooks remarked, “It’s been rough. We worked at it for a long time and then found out that Snakes on a Plane was doing the same story.”
