Flashback to 1995! Middle Men, starring AT&T commercial actor Luke Wilson, is finally getting a U.S. release Aug. 6 after debuting at Cannes in 2009 and the Santa Barbara Film Festival earlier this year. Wilson plays Internet porn pioneer Jack Harris; Giovanni Ribisi, Gabriel Macht, James Caan, and Kevin Pollak co-star. Kelsey Grammer is a senator! Warning: Language is very NSFW and there are bare breasts in the first few seconds. The image I chose of Luke Wilson, to your right, is about the most PG-rated frame of the entire trailer, and maybe the most PG-rated image of all time.

Oddly enough, I am much less traumatized by all the nudity and swearing than I was by the much more brutal hack job applied to Deee-Lite’s “Groove is in the Heart” in the film’s official non-red band trailer.
Thoughts on Internet porn? I mean this movie trailer?
