trailer break: ‘Jennifer’s Body’ redband trailer

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

(If this disappears from YouTube, watch it here.)
All the fanboys are in a tizzy over this one, because apparently Megan Fox is so hot that they’d still fuck her even if it meant she’d kill them before they were even finished.

That’s messed up, guys. What the hell is wrong with you all?

Of course, there’s something wrong with us women, too, probably. This flick is from chick screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno) and chick director Karyn Kusama (Girlfight), and what looks here in this trailer like it’s ostensibly a story about female revenge against male sexual rapaciousness also looks, in fact, like it will completely indulge that rapaciousness.

I’d like to think that’s a trick, and that the chicks are merely roping in the fanboys with the promise of naked Megan Fox biting their dicks off (which, apparently, is a good thing, according to these boys) and will then give them a smack upside their heads for being such idiots. But I don’t think that’s going to happen. Instead, it will totally be about granting the fanboys the fantasy they so deeply desire. Because indulging fanboy fantasies is what much of Hollywood is about these days.

I’ll apologize if I’m wrong about the movie.

Jennifer’s Body opens in the U.S. on September 18, and the U.K. on October 9.

    this is a typical second effort from someone who was lucky the first time and it has nothing left to offer, she should return her oscar

    on the other hand, I’ll check it out if the “goes both ways” stuff actually happens onscreen

    “Jennifer’s evil.”
    “Yeah, I know.”
    “No, I mean actual evil, not high school evil.”

    Um, didn’t Buffy tell us there’s no difference between high school evil and real evil…?

  • Accounting Ninja

    eeew. So it’s kind of like “Vagina Dentata” and SCP-953 combined.

    I won’t even go into the whole “uber-sexual woman as deadly” trope that has just been done to fuckin’ death…um, no pun intended. ;P

  • Der Bruno Stroszek

    From what I’ve read of the plot of this movie, Megan Fox’s character becomes a demon because the local rock band think sacrificing a virgin will grant them success. Unfortunately, the popular cheerleader who looks like Megan Fox – get this!isn’t actually a virgin, so she becomes a demonic cannibal instead.

    Just to recap – if you’re a virgin, you’re a victim. If you’ve had sex, you’re a monster. That’s what feminism looks like inside “the mind of Diablo Cody”.

    “Megan Fox is so hot that they’d still fuck her even if it meant she’d kill them before they were even finished.

    That’s messed up, guys.
    What the hell is wrong with you all?”

    You say that like you’re genuinely surprised.
    Haven’t you heard?
    Megan Fox’s pornstar-level sex appeal is so strong, it has its own gravity pull.
    And it’s expanding with every new release.

    Come september (pun intended) even hetreo women won’t be able to resist her, and like the male praying mantis, will happily accept death if it means a few minutes of bliss with her before hand.

  • MaSch

    “I’m not killing people. I’m killing boys.”

    That made me giggle.

  • Shadowen

    I think the “logic” people use who say they would fuck the character and not the actor is prettym uch simply: “We all have to die sometime. What a way to go, eh?”

  • Victor Plenty

    A few of us are resisting the cultural tide, and still have no desire to do anything sexual with Megan Fox. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that!)

  • So this is basically Teeth, Part II.

    Or else a dumbed-down version of Dave Cronenberg’s early work.

    Right?

    You’re saying that Diablo “Candy Girl” Cody would be voluntarily part of something that indulges male fantasies? Surely you jest…

    Well, I’ll admit she’s way too young for me.

    Apart from that, I plead the Fifth.
