Jim Carrey, Ewan McGregor and Leslie Mann in I Love You Phillip Morris Trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
It seems like there’s been a lot of drama around Jim Carrey’s new film I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS. Some early reviews were calling it a terrible film with over the top acting (I know, shocking for a Jim Carrey film), while others were calling it a groundbreaking movie. It also seems like the release date has been pushed back a few times, which is usually not a good sign for a film.
Either way, the new trailer is out and it reminds me, in terms of tone, of the trailer for THE INFORMANT, which turned out to be less than stellar. It’s based on a true story and the trailer definitely makes it look wacky and interesting. The film stars Jim Carrey as a con-man that falls in love while in prison, gets his lover (Ewan McGregor) out of jail, takes a high-paying job with a company and then blows all the money as fast as he can make/steal it. The film is directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa and will hit theaters March 26th.
