‘Movie 43′ Trailer & Image Keep It Clean But Still Hilarious

Published 1 year ago by

Comedies have a long history of relying on shock value and inappropriate humor to grab the attention of audiences. However, few recent comedies seem to be as confident or forthright in their embrace of the uncomfortable and bizarre as Movie 43.

Hitting theaters early next year, the film features a collection of vignettes from directors such as Peter Farrelly, James Gunn, Brett Ratner, Bob Odenkirk, Steven Brill, Steve Carr and actress Elizabeth Banks. We’ve already seen the red-band trailer for Movie 43, which outrageously pokes fun at numerous types of films, from romantic comedies to inspirational sports tales. Now, Relativity Media has released its green-band counterpart.

This new trailer features much of the same footage as the red-band version, but offers a bit more footage building up to the hilarity – particularly in the segment featuring Terrence Howard as a basketball coach. The trailer does an admirable job of getting across the punchlines without indulging too heavily in the foul language and twisted imagery that are sure to drive much of the film.

300 star Gerard Butler also appears in the film as an irate leprechaun (seriously). Below is a newly-released image of the Scottish actor in character and it gives us a taste of the insanity we can expect from Movie 43.

The film clearly aims to be a parody of ensemble comedies like Love Actually, Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve, and like those films, it manages to assemble an incredible cast, including Banks, Howard, Butler, Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman, Chloe Grace Moretz, Emma Stone, Uma Thurman, Kristen Bell, Naomi Watts, Richard Gere, Justin Long, Chris Pratt and Jason Sudeikis, just to name a few.

While Movie 43 may not be for the faint of heart or those easily offended, it could very well find an audience in theaters, by way of the same folks who made raunch-coms like The Hangover and Bridesmaids into blockbuster affairs.

Will you be seeing Movie 43 in theaters, Screen Rant readers? Or does the film seem a little too in-your-face for your tastes? Sound off in the comments.

  1. OMG I got to see this.

  2. can someone pls tell me the name of the song used at the end of the trailer ?

    • “Na na na na na na na na na na……” By My Chemical Romance.

      I think.

      • thx motoko

      • Your my new favorite person in the world been trying to figure that out for a week I knew I knew who was singing it just couldn’t place them thanks man.

  3. I refuse to watch a single trailer EVER. I will see it in the theater and I will laugh at every funny scene from the trailers because I never saw them before.

    • @ Eddie
      That’s a good idea and I think I’m going to do the same thing.
      This seems like pure comedy gold so after today I’m not going to watch any more footage so when I see this in the theater the jokes will be coming fast and furious…

  4. WTF?????
    Honestly, what else can you say?

  5. This looks awesome! Never heard about or saw this one coming!

    Hollywood does have some little surprises left!

  6. looks really random and funny! what is going on in the scene with Emma Stone? their dialog makes no sense in either trailer!

    • Guy whose name I don’t know: I can’t believe you had sex with that hobo from magic mountain.
      Emma Stone: He was a wizard.

  7. Poor Richard Gere, Anna Farris gets a credit but not Gere, maybe that’s part of the comedy ?

  8. What a cast!! Okay, I probably won’t see it in theaters, but I still want to see it.

  9. I like raunchy comedies, but this doesn’t look all that great.
    I’ll still see this because of the cast, but it’s definitely gonna be a rental viewing.

  10. I’m not gonna miss this one! With these actors, it’s only going to work :D
