Get Him To The Greek trailer debut!

The trailer for Judd Apatow‘s latest production, Get Him to the Greek, has debuted online. And it’s hilarious – obviously.

At the beginning of the year, I called Get Him to the Greek my 11th most anticipated release of 2010. This trailer does nothing to soften my excitement for the film.

Jonah Hill plays a young record company employee enlisted with the arduous task of transporting hard-living British rocker Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) from London to Los Angeles.

Unfortunately, Apple won’t let us embed the trailer. Spoil sports. Click on the link for the re-direct.

The film has been written and directed by Nicholas Stoller, who also helmed 2008’s brilliant Forgetting Sarah Marshall (perhaps the best and most under-appreciated under the Apatow Productions banner). Hill is not reprising his role from that film, in which he played an obsessive, pot-dealing hotel employee.

Greek looks as if it will be the only film to be produced by Apatow in 2010. After becoming the king of comedy in 2007 (for writing/directing Knocked Up and producing Superbad), he saw his credibility wane in 2009 with a couple of box office flops (Funny People, Year One).

Hopefully the king can reclaim his crown by having his name attached to Get Him to the Greek. I’m a massive fan of both Hill and Brand, and I can’t wait to see their chemistry on the big screen.

Also, reports say that the screenplay (also by Stoller) is incredibly raunchy and depraved. I’m in!

The film hits Australian cinemas June 10. It also stars Rose Byrne, P. Diddy, Elisabeth Moss and Aziz Ansari.

Discuss: So, what is your favourite Judd Apatow production then?
