David Gordon Green, director of Pineapple Express and Your Highness, is teaming up with Jonah Hill this time around to bring us what looks to be a brilliant unadulterated comedy in which Hill stars as the world’s worst (or greatest, depending on how you look at it) babysitter. We’ve seen some great things for the film already, all of which you can catch up on here, and this new trailer, via Collider, only reinforces how much I can’t wait for it to come out.
“When the world’s most irresponsible babysitter takes three of the world’s worst kids on an unforgettable overnight adventure through the streets of New York City, it’s anyone’s guess who’s going to make it home in one piece. THE SITTER is a new level of twisted and debauched hilarity from the director of Pineapple Express, starring Superbad’s Jonah Hill.”
Along with Hill, the film also stars the awesome Sam Rockwell, Ari Graynor, and J.B. Smoove (whose arc in Curb Your Enthusiasm was excellent), and will be hitting the UK on 22nd June next year. The lucky folk across the Atlantic will be getting this on 9th December this year, more than six months ahead of us, which seems a little unfair! But all the same, The Sitter looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun, and it should be a great summer comedy to look forward to when it finally hits here.
Without further ado, here’s the brilliant new trailer to enjoy. I still love the bit where Hill turns around in the car and tells one of the kids not to mess with him. (Though he, of course, doesn’t use the word ‘mess’.) If you want to watch it in stunning HD, then you can head over to IGN here.
