The biggest movie trailer released this week was undoubtedly The Legend of Tarzan, which stars super-hunk Alexander Skarsgård as the titular King of the Jungle who does awesome things like punching gorillas. (Where was he at that zoo?) While that one can be viewed in this week’s round-up of movie trailers, I want to focus on four documentary trailers. I know, normally I hear “documentary” and I just think of Ogre from Revenge of the Nerds, but all four of these trailers have me trading in my sleeveless Alpha Beta letterman jacket for a Tri-Lam cardigan.
The first two trailers focus on a subject near and dear to my heart – stand-up comedy – and while the star-studded Dying Laughing will tug at your heart strings with an appearance by the late Garry Shandling, I’m kicking things off with my Trailer of the Week for Can We Take a Joke?, which examines the critical topic of today’s culture and comics affected by people who are offended by everything.
