It’s been an interesting week on the trailer front, with promo clips for three upcoming big-hitters landing online. Woody Allen fans may groan a little at ‘To Rome with Love’ (above), a typically frothy, star-studded European romp which looks decidedly light on jokes. Jesse Eisenberg is a good fit for the obligatory ‘surrogate Woody’ role, put can he pull off comedy? Far funnier – surprisingly – is ‘Ted’, the feature debut form ‘Family Guy’ creator Seth MacFarlane. Love or hate his work on TV, ‘Ted’ looks genuinely hilarious, with Mark Wahlberg as the middle aged man saddled with a foulmouthed teddy bear. Finally, check out the first look at ‘Total Recall’ a trashy-looking remake of the classic bloodthirsty action epic with Colin Farrell stepping into Big Arn’s ass-kicking boots as the ordinary Joe who finds that his mind might not be his own – though, in keeping with the original Philip K Dick novel, there’ll be no trips to Mars this time around.
