Todd Phillips' Crazy Project X Trailer: Party of the Century/Apocalypse
Todd Phillips doesn't feel like directing the new Hangover right now, so he's taking time to helm a cray-zay party movie where a self-declared "uncool" kid throws the bash of the century. Cars jump into pools! Music blares! Girls lick on some popsicles under Fiona Apple "Criminal" lighting! Parents call to make sure everything is going OK. It's like a grittier version of Blank Check. I've been waiting for this since '94.
The cast is full of unknowns, but that adds something to Project X's anonymous bacchanal. No one has to know that the spectacle is very reminiscent of Marilyn Manson's "Tainted Love" cover video and Britney Spears' "My Prerogative" cover video. In fact, let's bring up either of those again.
[Plus a soupcon of "Aaron's Party (Come Get It)" but shhhh, no telling.]
