Week 4: Trailer Tuesday

So this week we will be checking out Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels.  It stands to reason that we should transport ourselves back in time a little and try to imagine what it was like to first see the trailer!  What would our first impressions of the movie have been?


From this trailer here, apparently the first official American one, it appears like the movie is a hilarious romp into the world of heists.  There’s Jason Statham!  He’s the only guy I recognize, but given that it’s a British film, I suppose it’s not terribly unusual to not know the actors.

There’s a British trailer for the film.  I really wanted to find some TV spots that I recall from 1998, as that was my only exposure to the film when it was released in America.  No luck, though!  The British trailer conveys a slightly different, less goofy tone.  It appears to focus more on the badassery of the characters.  Still looks funny, but the American trailer was almost cartoony in its irreverence.  I guess we’ll see this week exactly how the movie plays out!
