Jack Black, Mos Def Make With the Funny in Be Kind Rewind Trailer
The closest we'll get to a Robocop remake. This year.
Be Kind Rewind, opening in New York and Los Angeles December 21, comes from the twisted and fertile mind of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry. As the synopsis reveals:
A man (Black) whose brain becomes magnetized unintentionally destroys every tape in his friend's video store. In order to satisfy the store's most loyal renter, an aging woman with signs of dementia, the two men set out to remake the lost films, which include Back to the Future, The Lion King, and Robocop.
A project tailor-made for Black's comedic sensibilities, in other words, and the trailer does not disappoint. If you don't find Black's shtick funny, you'll be allergic to this clip, but otherwise, click on through and check it out.
