One of my most anticipated films for early 2013 finally has a red band trailer. I say finally, because I’m pretty sure that the source material, the novel by Cracked.com writer David Wong is rife with material that is set to horrify, entertain and amuse even the most jaded of movie-goer.
As film fans, we have been quite lucky this year. We have been very fortunate to witness the release of a few films, such as Cabin in the Woods, that toy with the audience and turn their respective genres on their heads and I am fairly confident in saying that I think John Dies At The End will be the next film to have us movie geek tongues a-flappin’. I can already predict hours of online debating the film online…there is no doubt that it will be a “love it or hate it” situation and barring that the film is a total flop, I am quite optimistic.
Take a look at the trailer:
I have to admit, I do like the look of that and Paul Giamatti definitely adds a touch of class to the film, even if only in a supporting capacity.
The film’s synopsis from Comingsoon states:
It’s a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. On the street they call it Soy Sauce, and users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can’t.
So, what do you folks say? Yay or nay?
