New Trailer For Burke And Hare Is The Ultimate Crowd Pleaser
Every film nerd in the world has been excited for Burke and Hare since its announcement way back in August of 2009. Simon Pegg, Andy Serkis, and the legendary John Landis? What wasn’t to be excited for? Well they added Isla Fisher, Tim Curry and Tom Wilkinson to the cast, and then capped it off with Pegg’s Spaced costar Jessica Hynes, nee Stevenson, to fully round out the nerd quotient of the film.
Well, now after over a year of waiting, the first trailer for the film has finally hit the internet at Hey U Guys in grand style. Despite how hard the editors try to make this trailer into a huge cliche with cheesy voice over and poor music choices, the humor has no problem shining through the stereotypes. Burke and Hare looks hilarious, charming, and most of all fun. Who would have thought any of that about a movie chronicling the lives of two men murdering people then selling their corpses to a university?
Check out the trailer below along with the official synopsis.
Based on the true story about the famous murderers, Burke And Hare follows the hapless exploits of these two men as they fall into the highly profitable business of providing cadavers for the medical fraternity in Nineteenth Century Edinburgh, then the centre of medical learning. The one thing they were short of was bodies.
