movie_reviewspy First Ted 2 Trailer!

So yesterday I was off my phone for the entire day. I had a "True Detective" marathon and I had no idea this trailer broke.
I saw it last night before going to sleep and I was actually pretty happy. I love how this plot doesn't stretch the story at all, actually, it gives more depth to the life of Ted.
I still have my issues like Mila Kunnis not being in the film and some jokes are probably going to be very forced, but oh well.
I'm actually excited for this one, doesn't look like it's gonna be as funny and original as the first one, but do I wanna see it? Fuck yeah! I loved Ted and I can't wait to see this.
What are your thoughts on this trailer? Excited?

filmtrivia The Night Watch is a 1642 Oil on canvas painting by Dutch painter (Rembrandt van Rijn). A reproduction painting of "The Night Watch" can be briefly seen reflected in a window
In Anton's (Konstantin Khabensky) apartment◆ The horror fantasy novel (Night Watch) was written by Russian writer (Sergei Lukyanenko) and was published in 1998◆ The novel is first in a pentalogy that continues with Day Watch, Twilight Watch, Last Watch (also published as Final Watch), and New Watch◆ The first story in the first novel titled (Destiny) was made into this film (Night Watch)◆Konstantin Khabenskiy (who plays Anton) actually worked briefly as a night watchman before he became an actor◆ In the final book of the series (Last Watch)  Semyon & Yegor reference some noticeable events of this movie, having seen them in their dreams, and Anton tells them dreams are sometimes messages from parallel worlds◆ Originally, the film, as well as its sequels, was commissioned by Channel One as a four-part mini-series for television. The rushes impressed the executives so much that they decided the material merited big-screen treatment◆ One of the paper pictures on the wall of the witch Daria's home (played by Rimma Markova) is a small reproduction of the 1590 painting (Vertumnus) by Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo. Vertumnus is Giuseppe's most famous work and is a portrait of the Holy Roman Emperor (Rudolf II) as Vertumnus, the Roman god of metamorphoses in nature and life◆

  •   filmtrivia The filmmakers didn’t use the western approach of awarding complete sequences to individual studios. Instead, the filmmakers turned the whole Russian effects industry into one giant virtual studio in which everybody was doing what he or she did best on any given shot◆ It meant, for instance, that one artist in Saint Petersburg would rotoscope and match-move a shot, another one in Ukraine would do the character animation for the same shot, and the whole thing would be put together by a third artist in Moscow◆16 Russian visual effects studios were used. With artists based in distant locations and with different time zones, communication and file sharing became a critical aspect of the project◆ The spider doll was created after the director spotted the prop on the set. Depending on the shot, the spider doll was either CGI-created in Softimage XSI, or a real prop photographed on the set with CG legs added later◆For the battle scene set on top of a stone bridge in the Middle Ages - the valley and the warriors falling down the bridge were created with CGI, while the pan out shot was real. At one point during the bloody confrontation, the leaders use a powerful spell to freeze time and walk to each other in the midst of hundreds of soldiers frozen in time. The filmmakers asked the actors to “freeze” in the middle of the shot. No one could remain completely still for several seconds so they added many CGI objects and elements in the shot like arrows, dirt, swords, fog, axes, crows to detract the viewers’ attention◆For the huge flock of crows, real birds were shot against blue screen and composited in◆For truck crash sequence, the filmmakers used three different trucks: a real vehicle, a full size replica that could be lifted easily, and a full 3D model◆ 5mon
  •   filmtrivia Russian director (Timur Bekmambetov) shot Night Watch & Day Watch simultaneously. It is a planned trilogy so the 3rd one will be separately◆ The sequel film (Day Watch) came out in January 2006 in Russia and was even more successful than it's 2004 predecessor. It features the same cast. It was released in America in June 2007. Day Watch is actually based on the second and the third part of the first novel (Night Watch) rather than the (Day Watch) novel itself◆ Russian director (Timur Bekmambetov) also directed the 2008 American film (Wanted) starring Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy◆ In the novel (Alissa Donnikova) was not a singer and was not in a group of four girls. Zhanna Friske, who portrays her in the film, actually is a singer and was actually part of the band that appears on stage in one of the scenes. The band is called "Blestyashchiye"◆
    Night Watch was the first big budget Russian supernatural film and is the highest grossing film ever released in post-soviet Russia.
    It was produced by Channel One, the government-owned TV channel. It made quadruple it's budget at the box office◆Because the film was a huge box-office hit in Russia, it widely despised by an underground nonconformist intellectual movement (Padonki) who criticized it for wide use of Hollywood-style filming and lack of ideas behind the FX. They labeled the movie "Nochnoy Pozor" (Night Shame)◆ The name of the motor ship appearing at the beginning of the film is M-43 (M stands for Moskvich class). The song playing on the ship is a Russian hit of the late 1980s, called (Music is Playing on the Motor Ship)◆ 5mon

filmtrivia During pre-production, potential investors wanted (Will Smith) or (Denzel Washington) to star in the film because of their bigger drawing capacity at the box office◆ Director (Terry George) ended up independently coming up with the money himself and was able to choose his original choice he originally had in mind (Don Cheadle)◆ The real Paul Rusesabagina and his wife (Tatiana) met with Don Cheadle and director (Terry George) and returned to Rwanda to help with research for the film◆Hotel Rwanda has been called the (African Schindler's List)◆ Screenwriter (Keir Pearson) spent one year writing the first draft of the script. During the process, he called the Rwandan embassy in DC. The woman who picked up the phone was a survivor who stayed at the Hotel during the genocide◆
The genocide was the culmination of a longstanding ethnic competition and tensions between the minority (Tutsi) who had controlled power for centuries, and the majority (Hutu), who had come to power in the rebellion of 1959–62◆ Nick Nolte's character (Col. Oliver) is based off (Romeo Dallaire) - the Canadian commanding officer who attempted to interfere with the Genocide despite his superiors' indifference to the atrocity◆ Romeo was also the subject of the documentary {Shake Hands with the Devil: The Journey of Romeo Dallaire} about what he witnessed in Rwanda & suffering severe post-traumatic stress disorder◆
Paul Rusesabagina sheltered & protected 1268 of his fellow citizens from the Rwandan Genocide. Paul is Hutu, his wife is Tutsi which made her a target during the genocide◆
Before taking his family and friends to the hotel, Paul's neighbours had moved into his home with him for safety, even though Paul did not own a gun◆ They put mattresses against the windows to protect themselves against bullets and grenades◆Paul's wife (Tatiana) was a specific target because she was the wife of the man who was hiding and trying to protect over 1,200 people◆ Italian-Belgian radio presenter (Georges Ruggiu) encouraged the Hutu population to kill all the Tutsis. Ruggiu called Rusesabagina's family "cockroaches"◆

  •   filmtrivia Tatiana lost her mother, and 4 nieces and nephews in the genocide. Her brother and sister-in-law went missing. Her father paid Hutu militia to execute him because the Hutu militia would cut a Tutsis left hand off, then they would disappear and reappear a few hours later to cut off a right hand. A little later they would return for a left leg. They went on until the victim died. They wanted to make the Tutsis suffer as long as possible. The one alternative was to pay soldiers to just shoot you◆
    By the end of the massacre, four of Paul's eight siblings remained alive. He comments in his autobiography that "for a Rwandan family, this is a comparatively lucky outcome"◆ Besides Paul, several other individuals were active in attempting to save Tutsi lives. Italian diplomat (Pierantonio Costa) rescued some Tutsi◆ Italian volunteer (Antonia Locatelli) tried to save 300 to 400 Tutsis by calling officials in the international community and was later murdered by the militia◆ Jacqueline Mukansonera (who was Hutu) saved a Tutsi during the genocide◆ Carl Wilkens was the only American who chose to remain in Rwanda during the genocide to help◆ Andre Sibomana (a Hutu priest and journalist) saved many lives◆and Captain (Mbaye Diagne) a Senegalese army officer of UNAMIR saved many lives before he was killed◆ In the film when Paul says goodbye to the refugees at the hotel, Bill Clinton  can be seen as Man of the Year on the cover of Time Magazine◆
    President Clinton has referred to the failure of the U.S. government to intervene in the genocide as one of his main foreign policy failings, saying (I don't think we could have ended the violence, but I think we could have cut it down- And I regret it)◆ Today, Rwanda has 2 public holidays commemorating the incident. {Genocide Memorial Day} on April 7th marking the start★ and {Liberation Day} on July 4th marking the end◆ The week following April 7 is designated as an official week of mourning. One global impact of the Rwandan Genocide is that it served as impetus to the creation of the International Criminal Court. 4w
  •   filmtrivia The Genocide started on April 6, 1994◆ By April 15, U.N. security withdrew international forces and it went from 2500 troops to 270 troops◆ Over the course of approximately 100 days an estimated 500,000 to 1 million people were killed according to a Human Rights Watch◆ Pro-peace Hutus who were labeled "traitors" and "collaborators" were killed◆The Rwandan military, Hutu rebel groups,  and Hutu militia groups, systematically set out to murder all the Tutsis they could find regardless of age or sex◆ Hutu civilians who refused to kill Tutsi were often murdered on the spot◆
    The militia put up hundreds of roadblocks around the country◆The Hutu gangs searched out victims hiding in churches and school buildings, and massacred them◆
    Thousands sought refuge in the Ecole Technique School in Kigali where Belgian U.N  soldiers were stationed. On April 11, the Belgian soldiers withdrew, and the militia killed all the Tutsi. 5,000 people seeking refuge in and around this church were killed by grenade, machete, rifle, or burnt alive◆ An estimated 300,000 Tutsi survived the genocide. Thousands of widows, many of whom were subjected to rape, are now HIV-positive. The conflict created an estimated 400,000 orphans◆
    Events in Somalia and the graphic consequences of the Battle of Mogadishu (potrayed in the film Black Hawk Down) were some of the reasons the United States gave as to why they didn't intervene in the Rwandan Genocide◆ 4w
