'Abduction' and 'Mr. Popper’s Penguins' Posters
Scoop This: ‘Abduction’ Poster, Judd Apatow’s Next Film and Will Ferrell Speaks Lots of Spanish
Two new posters for Taylor Lautner’s Abduction and Jim Carrey’s Mr. Popper’s Penguins have arrived online. We brought you the first trailer for Abduction the other day, and now we have the in-your-face poster with Taylor Lautner looking very Jason Bourne-esque and serious. If you’re a Taylor Lautner fangirl (or boy), then this is definitely the poster you want on your dorm room ceiling. Not so much with the Mr. Popper’s Penguins one, but those penguins do look adorable (and who doesn’t love penguins, right?).
Abduction hits theaters on September 23rd, while Mr. Popper’s Penguins invades your space on June 17th.
Judd Apatow’s Next Film Gets a Title?
Due in the summer of 2012 will be the next film from writer-director Judd Apatow, who’s been busy producing lots lately (like the hilarious Bridesmaids, due out next month). But he’ll be returning with a new film next year, one that will feature Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann reprising their characters from Knocked Up for a new comedy about getting older. According to Coming Soon, the title of the film will be This Is Forty, which is humorous since Apatow launched his film career with a film called The 40-Year-Old Virgin. We say good for him! There isn’t enough out there for people in their forties, with studios catering to younger viewers more and more these days. So if Apatow is the one man who will speak for those people approaching forty and hating life, so be it. Regardless, I will be there to watch it.
Will Ferrell’s Spanish-Language Film Gets a Trailer
And did we mention that Ferrell is the one speaking all the Spanish? It’s hard to tell whether this is a spoof or an actual movie (we think the latter), but apparently (and as previously reported) Will Ferrell is starring in a movie where all he speaks is Spanish. As of now it’s called Casa de mi Padre, and it co-stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna. Here’s the synopsis:
"Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) has lived and worked on his father’s ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch encounters financial difficulties, Armando’s younger brother Raul (Diego Luna), shows up with his new fiancé, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez). It seems that Raul’s success as an international businessman means the ranch’s troubles are over as he pledges to settle all debts his father has incurred. But when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul’s business dealings turn out to be less than legit, all hell breaks loose as they find themselves in a war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal)."
Check out the over-the-top trailer below and let us know what you think. Is this a real film? And while it looks hilarious, could they really maintain all the slo-mo explosions for 90 minutes?
