Movie Previews: Pineapple Express, Speed Racer

Upcoming Under-the-Influence Movies: Pineapple Express and Speed Racer

We just got a couple new full-length trailers for movies that, if watching them in a sober state, are pretty much . . . OK. It makes me wonder if maybe — just maybe — they're supposed to be watched under the influence? I'm just speculating here.

After the jump you can find both trailers. Opening August 8, Pineapple Express actually features a pair of potheads — played by Seth Rogen and James Franco — who find themselves being chased by criminals. My favorite parts include Craig Robinson (Darryl on The Office), who's funny even without playing someone with the munchies.

We'd already gotten a tripped-out teaser trailer for Speed Racer, and the full-length trailer is a lot of the same: psychedelic visuals, bright candy colors, cartoon-y characters (since it's, you know, based on a cartoon). I'm more interested in this one because it's just mesmerizing, though I do have to wonder what it might be like to view this film in, shall we say, an enhanced state.

To see what I'm talking about,


Pineapple Express

Speed Racer

Oh dude, Pineapple Express looks rad. Personally I think Darryl from the Office should be in all movies. But the whole thing looks crazy and awesome. Too bad my pot smoking days are far far behind me, but I hope it's enjoyable nonetheless! Plus yeah, props for using MIA. I couldn't see the Speed Racer one, but I'm pretty uninterested in that one anyway. I thought I had heard Elijah Wood was attached too... but maybe it's just because he looks the part so perfectly.

The only reason I WILL see Speed Racer is because of Emile Hirsch, otherwise, I'd have no interest.

I can't see the Speed Racer one :( But that movie kind of looks good, based on the teaser trailer. The Pineapple Express doesn't look as good as I hoped it would be. But its cool that they used M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes" in the trailer.

I never much liked Speed Racer anyway, so I probably won't see that - at least not in theaters. I might go see the other one, if I have the right company.

Since I'm a HUGE fan of the cartoon and a not-so-huge fan of remakes, I was planning to boycott this movie. Now that I've seen the trailer, though, I'll be seeing this with as much enthusiasm as I already have reserved for the Sex and the City movie.

Ok, Pineapple Express looks badass! And they had MIA in the trailor, even better! August 8 I am so there.

Is it just me, or has the idea that they were coming out with a Speed Racer movie been around for a long time now? I am just wondering what took it so long. Also, I feel as though I had heard Elijah Wood was going to be the main character. Am I totally making this all up?

i saw the trailer for Speed Racer the other day and although i'm probably not going to see the movie since it's not my style - i guess it's kind of looking cool.
