As the film gears up for its June release, Apple has premiered the first trailer, which sees P. Diddy as a music executive desperate to breathe some life into the failing music business. When his employees give him visions like "the Mexican Jonas Brothers," he turns to his assistant Aaron Green, who actually has a good idea: Put on a 10-year anniversary concert for Aldous Snow Live at the Greek Theater. The bad part: He has to get Snow there. Of course, Aldous' wild ways cannot be tamed by some mere kid assistant, and Green gets a taste of the rock star life of wild partying, absinthe, and a rather unpleasant candy jar.
Snow was my least favorite part of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, getting some funny moments but ultimately being the over-the-top goof in a fairly earnest comedy, and the bits between Brand and Hill were the worst, but it looks like a matter of context. Now Snow can shine without some side-story to derail his rockin' ways. But what do you think? Would you rather have Aldous Snow alongside Sarah Marshall and Peter Bretter, or a desperate Green trying to tame the wild Aldous beast?
