Everything looks better through a cloud of weed smoke.
In the new Red Band trailer for The Beach Bum, Matthew McConaughey stars as Moondog, a dude who lives near the beach, smokes lots of weed, and makes out with Isla Fisher.

It looks really good, especially if you like writer/director Harmony Korine's previous work. It's got all his staples–neon lighting, copious drugs, and lots of skin. Seriously, did you see Matthew McConaughey's butt? That's the real Beach Bum.
As with most of Korine's work, it's hard to gauge the film's tone from the trailer. It seems like this might be his take on a stoner comedy, but he's been known to genre-bend and there's a good chance this will end up a lot darker than it seems at first glance.
The supporting cast is pretty impressive too. There's Jonah Hill, Martin Lawrence, and Zac Efron, who's done a complete career 360º since High School Musical to become one of the coolest, most exciting actors working today. Plus, as is essential for anything involving loads of weed, Snoop Dogg will be there as well.
The Beach Bum comes out on March 29th, but until then, you can get into the right mindset by emulating Moondog and smoking lots of weed too. It's pretty much legal now.

The classic He-Man meme video stands the test of time as an iconic example of queer-coded art.
In December of 2005, Brokeback Mountain shifted queer-coded cinema into the mainstream.
Prior to 2005, "New Queer Cinema"––a term coined by film scholar B. Ruby Rich in Sight & Sound to define the queer-themed independent film movement, which focused on rejecting heteronormativity and concentrated on LGBTQ protagonists––existed on the fringe of the film world. It's worth noting that while the movement primarily refers to the boom in independent LGBTQ films from 1992 onwards, queer cinema existed for many years prior, albeit without a proper name. But regardless of nomenclature, New Queer Cinema was typically designated for niche audiences, relegated to arthouse showings at best.
There's a big problem with the trailer for Morbius, Sony's upcoming Marvel outing that is definitely not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe even though it has Michael Keaton reprising his role as Vulture (please let us keep our license, Disney!).
See if you can spot it.
MORBIUS - Teaser Trailer www.youtube.com
If you answered, "Sampling Beethoven's 'Für Elise' to line up with blue-tinted action shots is the absolute lowest effort, brain-dead attempt to signify 'gothic vampire movie' in the entire history of movie trailers," you're correct, but that's still not the biggest problem with Morbius. No, the biggest problem is that Morbius is played by Jared Leto.
