Jojo Rabbit, a movie which thinking cinemagoers should all be prepared to defend against context-free naysayers who will likely miss the point entirely by initiating detractions without actually seeing the film, now has a proper trailer that's hard not to watch multiple times in a row with sheer glee.
Billed as "an anti-hate satire," the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival official selection sees New Zealand writer/director Taika Waititi tackling the World War II era with an indeed satirical ear toward the chatter of 2019 America and beyond.
The new trailer, embedded for easy viewing and sharing up top, gives viewers a deeper glimpse into the story at the heart of the What We Do in the Shadows and Thor: Ragnarok director's latest creation. Roman Griffin Davis stars in the title role and is joined by Scarlett Johansson, Stephen Merchant, Sam Rockwell, Thomasin McKenzie, Rebel Wilson, and Waititi himself as Adolf Hitler.
Without spoiling it here, we should expect this satire to get incisive on many issues still plaguing society in a variety of forms to this day. In short, expect an assortment of idiots to be pissed off when this presumed gem hits theaters nationwide Oct. 18.
