New Trailer For ‘I Love You Philip Morris’ Goes Live

i-love-you-phillip-morris-movie-posterJim Carrey’s career has been on the upswing lately. From hitting with the success of Yes Man to playing just about every character in Disney’s A Christmas Carol, he’s had a good year, and he plans to continue that with the new comedy I Love You Philip Morris.

From the writing/directing team of John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (Bad Santa, Bad News Bears), the film stars Carrey as Steven Russel, a conman who recently discovers his own homosexuality. Russel gets incarcerated for his crime and meets Philip Morris (Ewan McGregor), who he then falls in love with. Things then become zany as the film turns the Romantic Comedy on it’s head.

The movie will most certainly turn heads, as this is one of the first mainstream comedies to boast the flamboyancy of male homosexuality (outside of I Love You Man dancing around the subject). Lots of interesting tones that the film deals with, which you can catch a glimpse of in the trailer after the jump.

I Love You Philip Morris also stars Leslie Mann, and is hitting a theater near you on March 26th.

    Hmm. That trailer actually intrigued me. I’m part of the ‘Jim Carrey should stop” group, but in these scenes he’s showcasing a different vibe (and not just the homosexuality aspect). We’ll see what the word on the street is regarding this movie…

    I think Jim Carrey needs to retire.
