In what will prove to be the oddest comedy this winter, Movie 43 boasts a seemingly unending list of comedy stars, featuring the likes of Emma Stone, Kristen Bell, Anna Faris, Chris Pratt, Johnny Knoxville, Justin Long, Stephen Merchant, JB Smoove, Leslie Bibb and Christopher Mintz-Plasse– not to mention a stellar list of Hollywood stars not known for their comedy chops: Uma Thurman, Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Gerard Butler, Kate Bosworth, Naomi Watts, Bobby Cannavale, Kieran Culkin, Josh Duhamel and Richard Gere are also co-stars.
Described as “an ensemble comedy intertwining different tales,” the movie — out in theaters Jan. 25 — also maintains multiple directors, including Peter Farrelly, Elizabeth Banks, Brett Ratner, Will Graham, Steve Carr, Steven Brill, Griffin Dunne, James Duffy, James Gunn, Jonathan Van Tulleken, Patrik Forsberg and Rusty Cundieff. Luckily a red band featurette has just been released so that you, dear Laughspinners, can get a better grasp of what Movie 43 is all about. (Spoiler: the featurette is not going to help you get a better grasp of what Movie 43 is all about). Enjoy!
