Now that I can more easily add video elements to my blog I have decided to start a new weekly feature: Trailer Tuesdays. Each Tuesday I will try to post up a fun or interesting trailer from an upcoming new film or maybe a classic old one or something cool on DVD. The first trailer going up is for Pineapple Express (opening August 6 throughout San Diego). Imagine the Big Lebowski crossed with True Romance , or Hot Fuzz with the added layer of being a pot comedy and you'll have a good idea of what Pineapple Express is like. Written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the creative team behind Superbad , and produced by Judd Apatow, Pineapple Express focuses on Rogen's character Dale who witnesses a hit while taking a hit, and then all hell breaks loose. The film marks the first mainstream effort from lyrical indie director David Gordon Green ( George Washington, All the Real Girls, Snow Angels ). Check out the trailer and let me know if there are any trailers you'd like to see posted or dug up from the archives. Trailer courtesy of Sony Pictures.
