    I know that I'm not the only one here that's seen the trailers for this new Jack Black flick.

    Looks pretty funny -- looks like we're going to see the return of the talented, School of Rock Jack.

    Plus, I think I heard that Beck's scoring this.

    I believe Beck is scoring it, and popping out a song or two. I'm pretty interested in this...silly fun.

    I saw the poster for this in the theater and have been wondering what it was about. After watching the trailer I'm going to have to pull the family in to watch this. It looks pretty good.

    I'm a big wrestling fan, so I'm looking forward to this. I'm also a big Jack Black fan, so I'm looking forward to this. Although, most movies even sort of related to Pro Wrestling suck.

    This looks great, although I'm really waiting for the Tenacious D movie.

    Still, Nacho looks pretty damn fine.

    Great news about Beck -- he seems like an unlikely, but perfect fit for the film. I'm looking forward to picking up the soundtrack when it is released.

    On that same token, yeah, the great thing about this movie is that it would seem like a decent family film. Not dumbed down like a made-for-kids Disney film (not that there's anything wrong with that).

    I'm excited...though its a shame we still have to wait so long for release.

    Such being said, has anyone seen the free (i

    Isn't Jared Hess directing this?

    Indeed he is. His success w/ Napoleon Dynamite should draw some faces to the theater.

    Official site is up: www.nacholibre.com

    and Ain't It Cool had a good review up this morning.

    Over the last year some friends and I have been semi-regularly going down to Baja because we get to stay at a company beach house for free. On the last trip, about 3 months ago, two of my friends picked up the mexican wrestling masks that they sell at/near the border.

    We are all committed to seeing this film [​IMG]

    Can't wait to see this. Was it moved to June 16, or is it still opening on June 2 like the trailers say?

    A Mexican priest who also works as a luchador. That concept alone had me laughing. I'll want to see this.

    Thanks for clearing it up. It does seem to be moved to June 16.

    The trailers I've seen in the cinema do say June 2. Then again, I saw a trailer for Pulse and it had a March release date.

    Despised Napoleon Dynamite and didn't click with the trailer either. I think Jared Hess must just be a love it/hate it type of director.

    This looks really absurd. Just check out Black's expression as he shoots that kid with the arrow...or his seriousness as he's about to step into the fence with the bull.

    Can't wait. [​IMG]

    I gotta admit I think this one looks terrible, but I must admit my dislike of Napoleon Dynamite might taint my opinion. I might not be so turned off by it if I didn't know who directed it. Hard to say...

    Even though I saw and really liked Napoleon Dynamite (I caught it before all the hype), Nacho Libre really doesn't seem to imitate that style at all. The humor was much less deadpan than ND's humor was.

    Regardless, I think we can count on this guy to deliver an original, slightly off-the-wall comedy.

    I'm looking forward to it for sure.
