For the unaware, there is indeed a new movie on the way called Hot Tub Time Machine, and it looks hilarious. The movie is basically a cross between Old School, Ski School, and Back to the Future. It follows a group of four friends who drink themselves silly and somehow wake up in the year 1986. I guess Dave Attell was right when he called drinking until you black out “time travel.”
The movie stars Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, Rob Corddry, and the perfect and required ’80s throwback casting of none other than John Cusack! Also appearing in the movie is Lizzy Caplan and a couple other potentially amusing ’80s throwback castings in Crispin Glover and Chevy Chase.
A regular family-friendly version of the trailer was released a while back, but we all know that the most fun comes from the Red Band trailers. Instead of choosing, you can click over to the other side now and watch both trailers. If you’re at work, go green; if you’re home alone, definitely go red.
Hot Tub Time Machine will be released on March 19, 2010.
HOT TUB TIME MACHINE follows a group of best friends who’ve become bored with their adult lives: Adam (John Cusack) has been dumped by his girlfriend; Lou (Rob Corddry) is a party guy who can’t find the party; Nick’s (Craig Robinson) wife controls his every move; and video game-obsessed Jacob (Clark Duke) won’t leave his basement. After a crazy night of drinking in a ski resort hot tub, the men wake up, heads pounding, in the year 1986. This is their chance to kick some past and change their futures – one will find a new love life, one will learn to stand up for himself with the ladies, one will find his mojo, and one will make sure he still exists!
