Ensemble casts can get messy...fast. We still can't seem to shake off the overtly star-studded Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve, which seemed entirely devoid of content even though they were jam-packed with celebs. Both these recent movies aimed for the stereotypical rom-com, aww-inducing outcome, but wouldn't it be amazing if all these great actors got together and did a bunch of nonsensical, silly, and kind of perverted things?
A red-band trailer of the upcoming film Movie 43 (yes, it's really called that) shows an ensemble cast straight out of our dreams, with each and every one performing at varying levels of insane and hilarious. Halle Berry blows out a blind child's birthday candles, real-life couple Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts display unconventional parenting techniques, and Johnny Knoxville gets beat up by a leprechaun played by Gerard Butler. No big deal.
The outrageous plot, matched by the equally awesome cast (Chloë Grace Moretz, Anna Faris, Emma Stone, and Hugh Jackman are just a few), is what makes this mega-ensemble movie seem better than the others. It is oddly refreshing to see such esteemed actors take a break from serious roles to talk about scatological behavior. And, while we are sure it will make as much sense as the holiday-themed options, at least this one aims for laughs...not sap. Hit play below, but be forewarned, it's a little NSFW.
