Trailer Watch: Hamlet 2 red band trailer

Moviefone brings us a red band trailer for the Sundance Film Festival prom queen, Hamlet 2. (The film sold to Focus Features for $10 million, making it the biggest acquisition of the festival.)

In the film, a failed actor turned high school drama teacher “looks to motivate his students and save his department by writing a sequel to Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The trailer is very funny in spots, it has a strong cast, and the early reviews from Sundance seem are (generally) rather positive, but you’ll have to wait until August 27 to judge for yourself.

Andrew Fleming (Dick and Nancy Drew…?) directed and co-wrote with Pam Brady, who worked on Team America, South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut, and… uh… Hot Rod (you can’t win ’em all). Steve Coogan (24 Hour Party People), Steve Coogan’s hilariously bad American accent, Catherine Keener, David Arquette and Elisabeth Shue star. Here’s a Q&A with the cast of the film from Sundance over at EW.

P.S. That totally looks like my cat.
