The red-band trailer for Movie 43 hit a few months ago and delivered more laughs than most mainstream comedies did through all of 2012. And it's certainly not unheard of for a comedy to stick all of its best funny bits into the trailer, but in this case, we're betting there's plenty left for the actual movie. It's just a numbers game, really. When you have this many funny people (see the long list below) involved with an anthology comedy, it's bound to have more laughs than can be crammed into a two-minute piece of marketing.
But since January 25 still seems all too far away, it's our pleasure to bring you a little more of Movie 43. We honestly have no idea what the context is for most of these pictures, but just looking at them puts a smile on our face. Elizabeth Banks destroying a child's birthday party? The gangly Stephen Merchant on a date with the gorgeous Halle Berry? Gerard Butler as a leprechaun? Chloe Moretz's face? Sign us up.
Warning: This movie is not for the weak-stomached, faint of heart or easily offended.
In Movie 43, comedy is served steaming hot by director Peter Farrelly of the Farrelly Brothers (Something About Mary, Dumb & Dumber) in one of the most original comedies ever made.
