Jack Blacks new film, The Year One, has video trailer. If you enjoyed Jack Black songs, or Jack Black with Ben Stiller and Robert Downey Jnr, or you just love Biblical Comedy (I know it sounds crazy) then you will love this film!




The Year One


The Year One is a new film out in the UK on 24th July. You could be forgiven for thinking as its a Jack Black film, it is a comedy. But they call it a "Biblical romp"!

Now I think most people would agree that Jack Black and the bible would not be known for their closeness, but this film tells the tale of Jack Black as Zed, and Michael Cera as Oh, meeting various characters from the early books of the bible before ending up in Sodom just before God decides enough is enough.

Be warned though, this will not be a film similar in style to Ghostbusters, although directed by Harold Ramis. Even though it's co-produced by Judd Apatow who produced Knocked-Up the style of this is more Monty Python (think Life of Brian).

Harold Ramis makes an appearance on-screen as Adam, and Vinnie Jones, Paul Rudd, Oliver Platt, Hank Azaria (known for his voice on Simpsons) and Rhonda Griffis.
Now if you are interested in this film, and you want to get to know the fantastic talent that is Jack Black, try viewing this Jack Black soundboard HERE in Millionaire. (There is no bad language in this clip).

Jack Black was in School Of Rock in 2003, it was written for Jack Black by Mike White who also played Mr Schneebly in the movie. This was a fantastic movie, a real feel-good film, and Jack Black was hilarious in it. View a clip HERE. This is Jack Black teaching a student some serious rock riffs. We loved this movie so much we bought it for our kids, who also loved it to bits.
If you have liked any films with Jack Black & Robert Downey Jnr, or Ben Stiller Jack Black Robert Downey Jnr, you are sure to enjoy this film. I personally can't wait until it comes out in the UK, I think you lucky US guys get it a month earlier than us in June 09.
