year one poster Full Trailer For Year One With Jack Black & Michael CeraIf you’re an avid reader of Screen Rant (which all of us here hope that you are), then you might not be all that familiar with the upcoming comedy starring Jack Black and Michael Cera called Year One (since we haven’t covered it up until this point). But just to let you know, the film is set in, that’s right, you guessed it, the year one.

Black and Cera play a couple of lazy hunter-gatherers who after being exhiled from their village, set out on an epic journey through the ancient world.

It’s got a fantastic premise that I’m surprised hasn’t been used more (if at all – correct me if I’m wrong but I can’t think of any film that’s set when this one is). It stars Black who when he takes the right roles is hilarious, and Cera who’s “loveable and awkward teen” schtick is getting a bit tired with me, but who has the potential to break out and become a truly great modern comedy movie star. And to top it off it’s directed and co-written by Harold “Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day” Ramis.

About six weeks ago we got our first look at a teaser for Year One, but it was more just a collection of short scenes than a proper trailer. Now, we finally get a proper, complete look at it with the full trailer:

This project had me immediately interested when the combination of Ramis, Black and Cera was announced. For some reason that trio combination struck me as if it will work very well, and by the looks of this trailer it does. It looks like they’ve got a good balance of showing us enough to spark interest, but at the same time not showing us too much as to spoil all the best laughs.

This also strikes me as a film which will make a decent amount of money at the box office. No doubt they’re going to advertise the hell out of the fact that it stars Black and “Juno star” Michael Cera, and it’s also a prime example of one of those films people will just turn up at the theater on a Friday or Saturday night and decide to see on a whim.

This just made it’s way firmly onto my comedy movie radar for 2009.

But what do you make of the trailer? Are you liking the look of what this is all about or is it just not your cup of tea?

Year One is scheduled for a 19th of June 2009 release.

  1. I personally don’t like the look of this film.

    It seems like an unintelligent comedy and a waste of a cool idea. It makes no sense why they’re all modern characters just wearing old clothes for the sake of it – they don’t make that aspect funny at all. I was waiting for an iPhone or Facebook joke somewhere in there.

    On top of that, Cera is still playing the same role 4 movies straight and it got old a while ago :(

    There are some funny moments and Paul Rudd is always a good time but there are too many corny and childish moments which is huge turnoff for me. I guess we’ll see come June.

  2. Rudd always plays the same role too..and that’s getting old…but this looks good for a laugh and a half and I like Cera and Black…and that Who song that is running in the trailer “The Magic Bus” is a great tune…

  3. I’m torn I’m a huge Paul Rudd Fan and a huge Cera fan , but I can’t think of many stars that I hate more than Black. The guy is simply unfunny to me. He’s always an idiot and I don’t think he has done a comedy with any intelligence sine he became a leading man. The only time he was even tolerable was when he was a secondary character.

  4. This movie looks good. This movie actually looks very good. I like the basic humour and Black has got charisma, so, yeah, it looks good.

  5. I’m actually going to agree with Daniel on this one. I can’t stand Jack Black. The guy is not even REMOTELY funny. I was hoping that during King Kong (How the HECK did he get in that movie!) he would get trampled or eaten. He’s annoying and all his characters are unoriginal. This is firmly on my “Snowball’s Chance in Hell” list.

  6. I want to hate this. Being pedantic, Year 1 would be 1AD. This movie seems to start off in prehistoric times, then a bunch of biblical stuff followed by Romans or Greeks or something. Historically it isn’t even trying and that irritates me. (yes, I am picky!)

    But I have to admit to laughing at the trailer. It doesn’t look anything new and that could be all the jokes in the entire movie, but I did find it funny. Really like David Cross.

    I have no doubt this will be a really stupid movie. I want to hate it, but I did find Cera and Cross bits funny.
    Not Black though. Don’t hate him, but nothing he did amused me there.

  7. I have to disagree with most of the people already bashing this one. Sounds like it’s going to be funny.

    @Ross
    There is an older film from the early to mid eighties that is based on a similar premise. Two slacker cavemen bumble through prehistoric life. I can’t for the life of me remember the title or actors but I know it’s out there I was just too young at the time to remember the details.

  8. Just realized this, but it is almost a sort of rip off of History of the world part one. Sort of.

  9. @ Cali

    I think the movie you are refering to is “Caveman” from 1981 starring Ringo Starr and Dennis Quaid..

  10. This Movie looks HILARIOUS. A lot of the complaints on here are kind of ridiculous. Who the F cares if it’s not historically accurate???? COME ON!

  11. Finally got around to watching this. Didn’t elicit one laugh from me – not even a chuckle.

    Pass.
