Trailer Watch: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead, Tropic Thunder full trailer, Children of Huang Shi (updated)

ShockTillYouDrop.com has the exclusive trailer for the upcoming Shakespearean vampire riff, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead. (No real connection to Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, although apparently he’s cool with the title lift.) The trailer is very funny, the soundtrack by Sean Lennon sounds wonderfully catchy, and there are some pretty sharp visuals in there, as well, shot with the new Red One digital system. The film centers around a young New Yorker hired to direct an off-Broadway version of Hamlet that’s been written by the leader of a vampire coven. Jake Hoffman, Devon Aoki, John Ventimiglia, Kris Lemche, Jeremy Sisto and Ralph Macchio star.

An extremely funny, full trailer for Ben Stiller’s Tropic Thunder — with more than a little taste of how RDJ is playing his "black" character — is up at the film’s official site. (For more on the film, check the related posts, as always.)

Update: A domestic trailer for Roger Spottiswoode’s The Children of Huang Shi has gone up at the film’s official (English-language) site. The drama tells the (based on a) true story of George Hogg (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers), a British journalist who helped a group of 60 Chinese orphans escape from the invading Japanese in 1937. Radha Mitchell (Pitch Black), Chow Yun-Fat and Michelle Yeoh co-star in the Chinese-Australian-German co-production.
