With its British release less than a month away, there’s finally a trailer online for the Simon Pegg-Andy Serkis laugher Burke & Hare. Directed by John Landis, the true story follows two ridiculous 19th-century grave robbers who make a killing selling cadavers to the Edinburgh medical school. The film also stars Isla Fisher, Tim Curry, Tom Wilkinson, and Christopher Lee. Is it hopelessly wrong that I laughed out loud when Pegg’s character wondered over his partner’s bravado: “I had confidence in a fart once and I shat all over myself.” Now that’s the way to deliver a line!
What say you PopWatchers? Do you demand a U.S. release? Do you find Simon Pegg just this side of sexy? Isn’t Andy Serkis sans CGI always a welcome sight?
