After waiting an entire summer, it took Sony Pictures,
not Universal, to deliver the first trailer for the upcoming film, remake
and adaptation titled The
Producers. Hence, it will be the international trailer
starting us out of the gates when it comes to previews for this film.
The Producers Trailer
The movie classic that became a Broadway sensation now becomes a movie musical event.
Mel Brooks is bringing The Producers, one of the most honored musicals
in the history of the American theater, to the motion picture screen as
a sparkling, feature-length musical comedy. The record-breaking Tony Award-winning
hit (based on Mel Brooks' seminal 1968 motion picture comedy) received 15
nominations and won a record-breaking 12 awards, including Best Musical,
Best Director and Choreographer, and Best Actor.
Two-time Tony Award winners Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick return to their celebrated roles as Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom, a scheming theatrical producer and his mousy CPA who hit upon the perfect plan to embezzle a fortune: raise far more money than you need to produce a sure-fire Broadway flop and then (since no one will expect anything back), Max and Leo can pocket the difference.
Having seen The Producers in Los Angeles
[different cast], I have to say that this trailer for the film looks spot
on. Everything has been captured, including the extremely fruity director
that makes 'Springtime with Hitler' a breakout success. I even enjoyed the
look of Will Ferrell, who plays the role of the Nazi behind the play.
My only issue with the trailer is that it looked, well, kind of old. For
a second I thought I was watching the trailer for the original film. However,
that could just be the flash talking or even the look that Susan Stroman
and Mel Brooks wanted on this one.
