I’ve seen a million trailers like this one for Joe Carnahan‘s Smokin’ Aces (Universal, 2.16.07). Why, then, does it seem way hipper than the others? Maybe I’m easily impressed, but it does seem funny. Jeremy Piven (Entourage ‘s “Ari Gold”) is a Vegas stand-up comic who’s decided to rat out some organized crime figures, which of course results in a couple of assassins (Ben Affleck, Alicia Keys) being sent to silence him. And of course there’s an FBI agent (Ryan Reynolds) looking to keep Piven alive. “Forget Hollywoodlandthis is the movie that will bring acceptance back to Affleck,” a reader enthused about a half-hour ago.
