Trailer: Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant

6 08 2009

Cirque(Isn’t that the spider that bit Peter Parker that one time)

Does anyone have a weirder resume than John C. Reilly? The guy does serious drama (The Perfect Story, Gangs of New York, The Aviator), odd-ball comedy (Step-Brothers, Tenacious D and The Pick of Destiny, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story) and the occasional musical (Chicago, the incredible Aimee Mann scene in Magnolia). More so, he mixes it up so you never can get a handle on what’s coming up. What’s next for Reilly? An action-adventure-family-fantasy-horror-thriller where he plays a vampire in a freak show.


Anyway, here is the trailer that also features Ken Watanabe (weird-headed announcer), Salma Hayek (bearded lady), Jane Krakowski (limb re-generator?), Patrick Fugit (lizard man), Orlando Jones (skinny dude/7-Up dude), and Willem Dafoe (John Waters-mustache guy). The tones throughout the trailer seem very mixed and it will be interesting to see how it all balances out in the final product. I’ve put the trailer up on youtube after the jump, but you can check it out in HD over at moviefone.
