For some reason we can't quite fathom why someone in Hollywood keeps giving Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer money to make spoof movies. That trend continues with today's reveal of the new trailer for The Starving Games
If you couldn't tell, this latest comedic (and we use that term loosely) outing uses The Hunger Games as its inspiration. Kantmiss Evershot joins the games -- and in theory, hilarity would ensue. In typical Seltzer and Friedberg fashion, this new trailer takes an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach to its jokes. Apparently, the idea is that if you just keep flinging lame gags at the audience, at least a few of them have to hit.
In this new clip, we get jokes about "Tebowing" (about six months too late, guys), a Gandalf and Avengers appearance, and the only thing that made us even remotely snicker: a joke about a guy named Hugh Janus. Hey, we're a little lowbrow... what can we say?
Check out the trailer below and see what you think. The Starving Games opens in select cities and on VOD and digital download on November 8. It's sure to make a wonderful holiday gift for that one member of your family who has dubious taste.
