I’ve already seen a lot of movie trailers this week (and there are two days of movie watching still to come).
There is the ‘green team’ — The Green Hornet and The Green Lantern — and for some reason, they always seem to run them back-to-back. Poor planning on someone’s part at the studio.
And, of course, that blasted Little Fockers trailer has been running for months. I don’t know what’s more annoying — its total lack of originality, or the audience laughing at it every time. Depressing.
But my favorite discovery so far at the theater? Cowboys vs. Aliens (and it’s not even a cartoon, folks).
The movie trailer opens on a dusty town you’ve seen in a hundred other Westerns. Then, out of nowhere… aliens attack! And Harrison Ford is in it! And Daniel Craig and Sam Rockwell… with Jon Favreau directing!
I mean — come on! How could this not be the funniest thing ever?
Check out the trailer.
I know, I know — it’s no Fockers. So brace yourself.
You might just see something you’ve never seen before.

Is dressing like Elvis cool again?
I’m only asking because, during a 24-hour period, I saw three men of varying ages, all dressed a la King. And I’m talking far outside the Vegas city limits — in Buffalo, New York, to be exact.
The first gentleman was my cabbie. He had fuzzy dice hanging from his rearview mirror — he won them in Atlantic City — and wore long mutton chop sideburns. He didn’t affect an Elvis drawl, but his intent was obvious.
The second slightly older Elvis was all voice and swagger. He was dressed in western gear, kinda like Elvis as Jess Wade in “Charro!” (That’s an older reference from back when Elvis made cheesy movies. Consult imdb.com for further information.)
And the last Elvis sat across from me on the plane back to Manhattan. He wore a purple leather jacket paired with a turquoise collared shirt. He had the coif down cold, and I’ll bet he wasn’t a day over 25.
Long live the King!
