Clearly, there’s nothing humorous concerning the underlying story, which includes severe allegations of sexual assault, however some individuals have discovered this newly-released trailer to be “unintentionally hilarious.” Is it unintentional, although? Do we actually suppose that the crew of this film weren’t completely howling between takes of filming a man dressed like Johnny Depp complaining about “James Francooo” whereas doing an impression that wouldn’t appear misplaced on Saturday Evening Reside, or that one episode of Nathan For You?
It seems that the screenplay was (hurriedly) penned by Man Nicolucci, a comedy author who labored for a very long time with Conan O’Brien. It does appear as if he has some non-comedies to his title as nicely, however on condition that Nicolucci’s background is usually in late-night exhibits and Comedy Central roasts, it appears borderline incomprehensible that this film, a couple of celebrity-fueled media circus, isn’t going to be deliberately goofy to some extent. In a single temporary second, the trailer even paired its intense cello music with a dramatic close-up of one in all Depp’s crappy courtroom doodles, which seems like pure parody.
Plus, the movie was made for Tubi, the free streaming service that beforehand gave us tongue-in-cheek choices resembling Titanic 666, which is a couple of group of “digital influencers” terrorized by the ghosts of … these harmless individuals who sadly misplaced their lives within the famously tragic nautical catastrophe.
