Trailers of the Week – The Devil’s Double and The Guard
June 25, 2011 Leave a comment
Two more trailers heading your way. This time around we have an interesting “biographical” movie about Saddam Hussein’s son Uday Hussein, and his body double. Last is a movie that has been described as a mix between In Bruges (awesome) and Bad Lieutenant (awesomer).
The Devil’s Double:
That is one kick ass looking poster for a movie about the man who was Uday Hussein’s double. Dominic Cooper plays both roles in the movie and looks to be an interesting movie. I am sold on the poster alone that looks to show the sadistic side of Uday and his reckless behavior under the house of Hussein.
I can see how the movie is getting some comparison’s to In Bruges, maybe not so much Bad Lieutenant, but this looks like a really funny buddy cop movie. Having Brendan Gleeson playing the role of local super cop with a penchant for making uninformed racial comments is bound to be funny. As long as Cheadle can steer clear of using that terrible cockney accent like he did in the Ocean’s films, I am ok with this team up. The trailer and dialogue seems sharp and well written. The banter seems to flow naturally for the two and the premise is a safe, familiar one. Sadly this is in limited release in July so not sure when it will hit nationwide.
