Tuesday’s Top Trailer: Ceremony

Welcome to a weekly feature here at Movies with Abe, Tuesday's Top Trailer. One of my favorite parts about going to see movies is the series of trailers that airs beforehand and, more often than not, the trailer is far better than the actual film. Each week, I'll be sharing a trailer I've recently seen. Please chime in with comments on what you think of the trailer and how you think the movie is going to be.

Ceremony – Opening April 8, 2011

I caught this week’s trailer, which has been out for a few weeks now, online via one of my most dependable trailer sites, Movie-List.com. I’m happy to include it since it looks like a wonderful independent film that I hope to see as soon as it comes out. In the leading role is Michael Angarano, famous for playing Jack’s son on “Will & Grace” and headliner of the Jared Hess bomb “Gentlemen Broncos” two years back. It looks like he’s playing a sort of Michael Cera alter ego in “Youth in Revolt” type, and it’s a superb part for the actor who has yet to find a role that fits him like a glove. Uma Thurman hasn’t done much in a while, so this should be a welcome return for her. I’m most thrilled about Lee Pace, onetime star of “Pushing Daisies,” putting on a British actor and piling on the pompousness to play the groom-to-be. The cast, which also includes Rebecca Mader, Charlotte from “Lost,” and Jake M. Johnson, the annoying friend from “No Strings Attached,” looks like a blast, and that’s not it. I like the old-fashioned suits and particularly Angarano’s mustache, and I particularly love that last little scene from the trailer. There’s something inherently wonderful – at least potential-wise – about wedding movies, and I can’t wait for this one.
