Sometimes a movie trailer can be deceiving. Other times it gives the viewer a glimpse of greatness.
In the case of Ang Lee’s upcoming film, “Taking Woodstock,” I’m betting on the latter.
The movie stars Demetri Martin in a comedy about the “true” story of Woodstock; of a man working at his family’s motel in the Catskills and who wound up hosting the biggest and most important concert in history — by accident.
Lee has had success with “Brokeback Mountain” and “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.” But he also bombed with “Hulk” and “Lust, Caution.” Perhaps an indie comedy is just what he needs.
Besides, “Woodstock” co-stars Emile Hirsch, Liev Schreiber and the reliably-funny Eugene Levy. How can you go wrong with a cast like that?
The first teaser trailer has hit the Web and the folks over at CinemaBlend.com were lucky enough to nab it for all of us to enjoy. Click on the arrow above to watch it.
