Welcome to Trailer Hitch, your weekly look at the latest movie trailers to hit the Internet. We've got previews for a couple of smaller, indie-ish films this week, as well as a few of mega-blockbusters. Keep reading to see which clip is our Trailer of the Week.
Can you ever just be, like, whelmed?
If I'm being honest, only the cast (Steve Martin, Claire Danes and Jason Schwartzman) makes this movie look interesting to me. When I saw the cast, I immediately put this on my short list of films to see. Seeing the trailer has now moved this to my short list of movies to rent when it hits DVD. Based on Steve Martin's novella of the same name, Shopgirl is the story of a girl who appears to be torn between two suitors. One older, wealthy and safe. The other broke, an idiot and quite possibly wonderful. Again, based on this trailer, I'm not sure I care who she chooses. Either way, look for the choice to be made on October 21st.
