Trailer Talk: ‘Legion’


Check out this five-minute movie trailer below and see if you can spot one actor who didn’t laugh his way all the way to the bank. There is no way this movie is going to be any good, but I can’t wait to see it.

We’ve come to the point that campy movies are just as well made as the good ones (check out Granny Foul Mouth, though. Hilarious!), but the dialogue is uproarious.

Dennis Quaid as a diner owner!? Paul Bettany as an Angel?! Movie studio, take my money now, give me some popcorn, and let the good times roll. Notice the name of the diner? Paradise Falls diner. Outstanding.

God is pissed, but lucky for us, it only takes bullets to bring down the rest of heaven’s angels. I know there’s a movie where they dip the barrel of the gun in Holy Water and then blast away the demons. I get that, that’s because they’re evil. How does it work when they’re angels? (Oh!!! Or maybe that’s a hidden commentary by the filmmaker!)

Thing is, it looks completely blasphemous in concept, but my spider sense is telling me I betcha they bring it all around to be some sort of test by God or something. Either way, my friend Adam has it right: I’m going to see the heck out of that movie.

    That picture from the film looks cool but I don’t think a shirtless good looking winged angel will get me into the theater. After viewing the trailer, the movie just looks too dark and violent. I think I prefer the movie “The Seventh Sign”, with Demi Moore thank you.

    This story made me want to see the movie way more than the trailer did!
