Trailer Watch: Four Lions

I’m really not sure what to make of this trailer. On the one hand, it’s a comedy about a bunch of would-be suicide bombers, which I’m inclined to find morally repellent. On the other, they’re jaw-droppingly shitty suicide bombers, and it’s freakin’ hilarious.

Nominally “illuminating the radicalized British jihad and undermines the folly of western culture’s attempts to alienate them,” Chris Morris’s Four Lions premiered at the Sundance Film Festival back in January, where it was short-listed for the World Cinema Narrative prize. The film will premiere in the UK at the Bradford International Film Festival next week, followed by a national release in May.

There is no US release date set, and… just hazarding a guess based on the fact that the movie’s a comedy about a quartet of terrorists… don’t hold your breath for one.
