Rejoice, for we have a teaser trailer for Tropic Thunder, Ben Stiller’s directorial follow up to Zoolander, starring Robert Downey Jr., Nick Nolte, Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride (of The Foot Fist Way), and, uh, someone named Jackson.

I’ve had a boner for this ever since the first photos of Robert Downey in blackface showed up on the internet (I’m a sucker for Minstrel Shows, what can I say).  The teaser doesn’t give us much footage, just a look at the characters, some CCR (much preferable to the Eagles), and two taglines – "Shit Blows Up, 8.15.08" and "OH MY GOD, MOTHER NATURE JUST PISSED HER PANT SUIT!" 

Anyway, awesome.  Also awesome (and even slightly relevant)? Patton Oswalt’s impression of what Star Wars would’ve been like with Nick Nolte as Han Solo (after the jump).
