Red Band Trailer For 80s Throwback Comedy Take Me Home Tonight
Because the movie making process takes so long, there's always the risk that certain themes and ideas won't transfer from the time that the film is made to the release date. Fortunately for Take Me Home Tonight, this really shouldn't be a problem. Even though the movie was made back in 2007, the movie is knee deep in the 80s.
IGN has premiered the red band trailer for Take Me Home Tonight which will finally arrive in theaters on March 4. Set in 1988, the film stars Topher Grace as a recent MIT graduate who can't figure out what to do with his life. Working at Suncoast Video and dealing with the constant pressure being put on him by his parents, everything in his life builds and builds before exploding during a Labor Day weekend party.
Check out the trailer below.
While this trailer does have its moments, I don't think it's nearly as effective as the one that came out just a few weeks ago. It does have its funny moments (I enjoyed the bit about not being trusted with the alarm code), but it simply spends too much time in specific scenes, rather showing us a more complete picture. Unlike most red band trailers, I do like the fact that it doesn't use the opportunity as an excuse to cram as much graphic content as it can into two and a half minutes (though it does have its fair share). Only time will tell if this one was worth the wait.
