This one really snuck up on me – I’ve never heard of it before today, and now I want to see it immediately.
Most action-comedy trailers are extremely obvious: some campy voice-over that could almost be Trey Parker goes, “He is the world’s most dangerous killer…but he’s about to discover…that his greatest challenge ever…IS BEING A DAD!” This one actually kicks some serious ass in a first-person-shooter perspective sequence, letting you know its action will be the real deal – before delivering a thoroughly incongruous punchline.
It’s from Incredible Hulk director Louis Leterrier, who is not always known for his humor. But as you’ll see, I think he found the right guys.

Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
