New 'War, Inc.' Trailer for 'Grosse Pointe Blank'

April 4, 2008


Do you ever see a movie, then years later see it again and you realize a lot of your memory of it was wrong? I ask not because a reassessment of Short Circuit revealing that a remake isn't really that tragic, but because that's how it just was for me, watching this trailer to War Inc. I swear to you, when I saw this a decade ago, it was set in Michigan, and was called Grosse Pointe Blank! Where did all this political stuff come from?! And I would have sworn Minnie Driver was the love interest, not Marisa Tomei--and that Hilary Duff was far too young to play a legal lust object. But since everything else is the same, I'll have to just attribute this one to bad memory. Weird!

Aw, who am I kidding. Cusack, you old dog, you've charmed me again with your lovable everyman of a hitman. When can I get my ticket?
