M.I.A. Classes Up the "Pineapple Express" Trailer
So preceding the actually quite excellent Forgetting Sarah Marshall (great Buena Vista Social Club joke, in any event) is the trailer for Pineapple Express, yet another Judd Apatow concoction, this one with darker, edgier, more violent content betwixt the stoner gags and my-thumb-looks-like-my-cock shenanigans. Looks pretty good. But the best thing about the trailer (aside from the foot-through-the-windshield thing, maybe) is the score: M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes," the gunshots syncing up splendidly, the eerie Clash sample evidently the perfect accompaniment to chubby men blowing pot-smoke rings in slow motion. She's so versatile.
