‘mother!’ First Clip: Michelle Pfeiffer is Going to Be Jennifer Lawrence’s Worst Nightmare — Watch
Darren Aronofsky often gives actresses some amazing supporting roles (see Jennifer Connolly in “Requiem for a Dream,” Marisa Tomei in “The Wrestler,” Mila Kunis in “Black Swan”), and “mother!” is shaping up to be no exception. The marketing thus far has primarily concerned leads Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem, but co-star Michelle Pfeiffer finally gets her due in the first official clip, embedded below, and it’s a juicy one.

Pfeiffer is playing the wife of Ed Harris’ character, one of two uninvited guests who show up and wreak havoc on Jennifer Lawrence’s protagonist. The official trailer suggests that Lawrence’s husband, played by Bardem, is in on whatever disturbing plans Pfeiffer and Harris have in store. The first clip finds Pfeiffer devilishly asking Lawrence about whether or not she wants to have a child. The “Rosemary’s Baby” vibes are palpable.

‘Super Troopers 2’ Red-Band Trailer Unleashed

Super Troopers 2‘ has unleahed it’s first official red band trailer. Released in 2001, the original ‘Super Troopers‘ quickly became a cult hit on dvd. The guys behind Broken Lizard have pretty much always wanted to make a sequel to the film, but could never find the funding to make it happen. Then, in 2015, it was announced that the comedy troupe had received studio permission to make the movie, but that production funds would have to find production funding themselves. The group then turned to indiegogo, where they successfully met their $2 million funding goal in 26 hours, and raised a total of $4.4 million to make the movie.

The sequel follows our lovable band of heroes as they deal with a “border dispute” that somehow involves a group of Canadian mounties. While the trailer itself serves mainly as an announcement, we do know that Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter,

Check Out This Super Troopers 2 Teaser Trailer Right Meow!

  • LRM Online
Fans of Broken Lizard can now mark their calendars as the comedy troupe’s next big screen adventure, Super Troopers 2, is set to be released April 20, 2018. The guys haven’t been seen together in a film since 2009’s The Slammin’ Salmon, in which the usual crew played waiters and chefs. The Original Super Troopers was released 15 years ago and became a cult classic with the ridiculous antics of some not so law-abiding law enforcement officers.

A minute-long teaser for Super Troopers 2 was released today, and from the looks of it, fans are in store for more of what made the first movie great. We see what looks to be some more shenanigans from the guys, as Rabbit, the rookie from the first film who was endlessly hazed, is tied down to a table and the rest of the guys seem to be dead set on helping him out with some manscaping.

'Super Troopers 2' Trailer Delivers Antics That Made the First a Cult Classic

'Super Troopers 2' Trailer Delivers Antics That Made the First a Cult Classic
The opening moments of the first teaser for Super Troopers 2 is a ball-shaving scene. So it appears fans are going to get the same kind of humor that Broken Lizard delivered in the original 16 years ago. 

All the boys are back: Mac, Thorny, Rabbit, Foster, and, of course, Farva. 

The trailer runs a little more than a minute and doesn't reveal any real plot points other than that the fan-favorite goofy, outrageous Vermont State Troopers are back. 

It is also clear from the teaser that the sequel will be rated a hard 'R,' like its predecessor.

Jim Gaffigan appears in the trailer...

First Teaser for ‘Super Troopers 2’ Finds Broken Lizard Jumping Back into Uniform

It’s been 16 years since Super Troopers underperformed at the box office only to blossom into a bonafide cult classic, and now comedy troupe Broken Lizard are back with Super Troopers 2. The troupe have produced several other films since Super Troopers, including Club Dread and Beer League, but none entered the zeitgeist the way Troopers did.

Of course, a long delayed sequel to a well-loved comedy doesn’t always turn out for the best. Remember Dumb and Dumber To? If you do, I’m sorry. Hopefully Super Troopers 2 will manage to recapture the stoner comedy magic that endeared the first film to so many.

Broken Lizard’s Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske all return, along with Brian Cox, and new members to the cast include Lynda Carter and Rob Lowe. Super Troopers 2 opens 4/20/2018, because of course it does. You can watch

I like many of you am a fan of the original Super Troopers.

Three years after Broken Lizard crowdfunded a sequel for their beloved 2001 cult comedy Super Troopers, the comedy troupe have unveiled the first look at Super Troopers 2, due out in 2018.

Despite the 17 years since the original, the troopers haven't grown out of their sophomoric humor. The teaser opens with the threat of a "balls-shaving" sequence before they're mercifully called into action by their Captain (actor Brian Cox, reprising his role from the 2001 comedy).

The first time the Broken Lizard troupe took to patrolling the highways of Vermont in Super Troopers, the film was premiering at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival. George W.
