No Cannes Do. ‘Tropic Thunder’ Screening?

No Cannes Do. 'Tropic Thunder' Screening?

This weekend, a terrific red-band trailer for Ben Stiller’s Tropic Thunder was made available on iTunes. It’s a free download, and it’s worth clicking. This movie (opening August 15) looks hilarious and wrong, and hilariously wrong. Kind of like Borat, which I bring up because I would not be surprised if Tropic Thunder has a special, secret screening in Cannes much like Borat did in 2006. That move was a very smart way to build word-of-mouth for the politically incorrect comedy. Maybe Ben Stiller will attempt something similar with Tropic Thunder? Stay tuned for more, but watch the new trailer for now.
