trailer break: ‘The Stone of Destiny’

Take a break from work: watch a movie trailer…

Oh, look, it’s The Da Vinci Code with a Scottish accent!

It’ll be better than that silly flick, though, because everything’s better with a Scottish accent. And also because this appears to be actually be intended as a comedy, instead of not intended as one — as with Da Vinci Code — but being hilarious anyway. And of course, it’s based on a true story, not a story people merely want to be true.

And oh look! Charlie Cox: I was expecting to see a lot more of him after Stardust, in which he was so charming and so exuded that ineffable movie star It that I was certain he was on the verge of major stardom. What’s happened with that?

Always nice, too, to see Billy Boy and Robert Carlyle in absolutely anything.

The Stone of Destiny is now playing in the U.K.; no U.S. release date has been announced yet.
