We make jokes all the time about how some movies seem to be made with the trailers in mind or else from pre-existing clips, as if no one bothers to cobble together an idea anymore without first making a teaser. But in this case that might not be a bad thing. It was announced this week that Mandate will make a big-screen adaptation of Jay and Seth Versus the Apocalypse, a fake trailer starring Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel and co-written by Rogen and his writing partner, Evan Goldberg (Superbad). It’s a comedy about two roommates cooped up together and getting on each other’s nerves after the world has skidded into fiery destruction. Here’s the original clip:

In the latest video game adaptation news — I swear some days that’s all there is — Bruce Willis is in negotiations to star in “Kane & Lynch” for Lionsgate. Directed by Simon Crane, a former stunt coordinator and second unit director, the film follows Kane (Willis), an inmate on death row who’s sprung by a former fellow thief and paired with another criminal named Lynch. After that, they team up to do stuff, though what happens isn’t quite clear; I think they try to save the wife and daughter of one of the guys, but who knows.

Fuck it, that’s it. Let’s watch videos.

Here’s the trailer for Religulous, the new documentary from Larry Charles in which Bill Maher explores modern religion in America:

Here’s the clip for The Express, a drama based on the true story of football player Ernie Davis:

Finally, here’s the best clip of the bunch. It’s the trailer for Traitor, a film about terrorism starring Don Cheadle. Enjoy:
