Trailer Bulletin: Talladega Nights

by |

For those of us who loved "Anchorman" and semi-suffered through "Kicking & Screaming," "Bewitched," and "The Producers" while waiting for the Will Ferrell we know and love, well, here comes a movie (and the trailer) you'll want to keep an eye out for. It's "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," and it hits theaters on August 4th.

"The film tells the story of NASCAR stock car racing sensation Ricky Bobby whose "win at all costs" approach has made him a national hero. He and his loyal racing partner, childhood friend Cal Naughton Jr., are a fearless duo -- dubbed "Thunder" and "Lightning" by their fans for their ability to finish so many races in the #1 and #2 positions, with Cal always in second place. When a flamboyant French Formula One driver, Jean Girard, challenges the "Thunder" and "Lightning" for the supremacy of NASCAR, Ricky Bobby must face his own demons and fight Girard for the right to be known as racing's top driver."

Written and directed by frequent Ferrell collaborator Adam McKay, "Talladega" also stars John C. Reilly, Sacha Baron Cohen, Leslie Bibb, Michael Clarke Duncan, and Gary Cole.
