Hamlet 2 Official Trailer

Hamlet 2 is an upcoming irreverent comedy that should be released in the second half of August 2008. The movie is directed by Andy Fleming and is starring Steve Coogan, Catherine Keener, Amy Poehler and David Arquette.

Here below the first official trailer of Hamlet 2:

The Plot:
"A failed actor-turned-worse-high-school-drama teacher (Steve Coogan) rallies his Tucson, AZ students as he conceives and stages a politically incorrect musical sequel to Shakespeare's Hamlet." (Source: IMDb)
The critics have been kind of harsh against this movie which was premiered at the end of the last Sundance festival. But this trailer of Hamlet 2 looks quite good so far. I particularly appreciate the scene with the two Latinos:

"We're going to Hell for doing this play..."

It makes me laugh out loud. I think that's gonna be a really entertaining comedy.
