trailer break: ‘Alpha and Omega’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

Okay, so: Girl wolves wear flowers behind their ears. Perfectly normal and natural. But how are we supposed to be able to tell the other wolves are male? Where are their beer cans? Or their beer guts? How are we to know the male wolves are male without clichéd cues?

Also, brilliant move on Lionsgate’s part to underscore that what is driving the plot involves the idea that the two protagonist wolves are meant to have sex with each other — you know, in order to “repopulate” — by using the Duran Duran song “Hungry Like the Wolf,” which everyone knows is a song about being horny. Very clever.

I’m still deciding which I love more: the two pee jokes, or the “Idaho?”/“Ida-who?” exchange. Oscar Wilde must be smacking himself for not coming up with these first.

Thank god it’ll all be in 3D. I’ve been feeling a decided lack of 3D movies of late.

Alpha and Omega opens in the U.S. and Canada on September 17, and in the U.K. on October 22.
