Truth Seekers (Pegg & Frost)

First trailer for this has been released.

I'm looking forward to it although the trailer isn't up to much. Feels like ages since they done something together. Bonus points for having Malcolm McDowell and Julian Barratt in the cast as well.

I liked this more than I thought I would. Though on the flip side Pegg in that wig kind of looks a bit like my Mum, so that'll be disturbing, especially if there's a sex scene.

Yea frost looks lovely. There's something innately loveable about his face

This feels like a trailer that has no bearing on  the house style

Nah, it's a new Amazon Prime show which they wrote with James Serafinowicz and someone else who's name I can't remember, and Edgar Wright isn't involved in it.

There appear to be no actual jokes in the trailer.

Should be a lot like The Worlds End then.

Looks fine you miserable bastards. Bit of a Skeletons vibe at the beginning - maybe it'll start like that.

Wouldn't be the first comedy trailer to miss out on the jokes, but it also wouldn't be the first Frost/Pegg project to leave me feeling underwhelmed. Reserving judgement for now.

It seems without Edgar Wright the magic isn't there.

Am I wrong or does it look like this has minimal Pegg and that they're being a tiny bit cheeky trying to pitch it as a Pegg/Frost vehicle?

There are two (possibly three) jokes in the trailer but that is a bit low.

Hopefully it's not significant and all the good stuff is in the film. Better than all the best jokes appearing in the trailer.

The Smyle logo on the work uniform looks a lot like the Amazon logo, it's very distracting.

I think this sort of stuff should have been left in the 00s. "of its time" is the best I can say

Pegg has obviously been in all sorts of unfunny shite, but I'm pretty sure that Frost has always been in films that are at least a bit funny. So as long as Frost is involved I'm optimistic.

Suspect you are correct there - Frost all over the trailer, Pegg hardly in it, which one is the bigger star? Alarm bells ringing

Pegg and Frost are co-creators, right? I think that's what's meant by the promotion as a "Pegg/Frost vehicle".

Anyway, as for the show itself, it definitely looks like an Amazon Prime show. As in, not good enough for Netflix.

Yeah hate to restate everything but minimal Pegg, shit trailer, no Wright, not even on Netflix.


Oof.

Do you mean that British film from 10 years ago, that nobody saw?

It was claimed a while back that Malcolm McDowell occasionally has "hundred thousand dollar days", where he tells his agent to find him a part he can spend no more than a day's work on, and collect requisite amount. Which accounts for his participation in so much rubbish over the years, of which this geek shit will no doubt turn out to be another example, hope he got his $100,000.

Yes. Deserved a wider audience. And I've just remembered you saying your brother played one of the two lead roles!

Didn't your brother actually write the damn thing too, Jake? I remember watching it as part of a foreign film festival in Moscow. I was wearing a t- shirt with a skeleton on it especially ( it was also being shown on the eve of Halloween, doing a grand old bit of thematic work, that t- shirt was).
Wasn't Tuppence Middleton in that film, too? Ah, I'd much rather write about this sort of stuff than that mediocre sounding Frost/ Pegg thing.
