More Movie Trailer Fun

During the trailer for Stealth, the new Rob Cohen opus, Sam Shepard says something like: "You wanted to be on the cutting edge? Well, this is the cutting edge." I couldn't help thinking: "Huh, the cutting edge is a cross between Short Circuit and Top Gun?"

Through the good old IMDB, though, I find that Stealth was penned by W.D. Richter, who wrote the Invasion of the Body Snatchers remake, the underrated, screwball comedy All Night Long, AND one of the all-time great tongue-in-cheek action pics, Big Trouble in Little China. He also directed one of my favorite "cult" movies, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension.

Somehow, though, I doubt that Richter's sense of humor will be all that noticeable in Stealth.
