New TROPIC THUNDER International Trailer

The Ben Stiller comedy “Tropic Thunder” has been getting press for months now – mainly because some people are horrified that Robert Downey Jr. appears in the film in “black face.” The horror!! Make-up on an actor! Who could dream up such indignities?

We have been treated to a few “Tropic Thunder” trailers already, including a very funny red band version, all designed to convince us that Ben Stiller (and black face) can be funny again. The latest two minute masterpiece is the International version, and yes, that’s why it has the release date listed as “19/9/08” at the top. Maybe it’s the heat, but it took me a LONG time to figure that one out.

Look, I know that Stiller has lost his way since “Dodgeball,” but the good news is that however the magical trailer editors choose to slice up and serve “Tropic Thunder” clips – the shit looks funny. OK, Ben? We are all convinced. We want to see your movie… you can just back off and let us steep in the anticipation now.

“Tropic Thunder” lands on August 15th, check out the international trailer below:
