What an unconventional Trailer. It’s fitting that my first attempt to keep things brief by Reviewing Trailers, starts with the trailer featuring a collection of Short Films.
The Trailer for STARS IN SHORTS (aptly named by the way), don’t really show much, other than showcasing the huge number of talent in these short movies. Basically a collection of 7 Short films, featuring the who’s who of Hollywood. That’s it.
The trailer shows nothing of the stories involved, but it’s enough to peak curiosity. Claiming ‘your favorite movie stars as you’ve never seen them before’ seems adequate for some of the actors. Some of them seem really quirky and interesting.
Seeing ‘M’ from the latest Bond Film Franchise, Judi Dench, complaining about being tagged on Facebook and ‘OMG’ing as “The Internet Dater” is pretty damn hilarious.
Colin Firth, as an obnoxiously unkempt man, uncomfortably attempting small talk about hip-hop or rap, as “The Needy Neighbor” is pretty eccentric.
Lily Tomlin, planning on hiring a stripper for her husband’s funeral, is amazingly inappropriate, and makes me want to put it into context. Maybe.
There are a lot of other headliners like Kenneth Branagh (Director of THOR), Tom Hiddleston (Loki in THE AVENGERS), Jason Alexander (George from SEINFELD), Kiera Knightley, Julia Stiles, and a bunch of others.
The trailer was effective in actually catching my interest, and I might maybe check out STARS IN SHORTS, out in select theatres in Canada & USA from September 28th, 2012.
Let me know in the comments below if you’re going to actually go to a theatre to watch 7 Short Films??
