You've never seen a trailer like this
"Air Bud," run for your life.
The beloved golden retriever made quite a name for himself in Hollywood, that perky smile stealing scene after scene in heartwarming movies diving into just about every sport. Well, after he sees this trailer, who could blame the pup if he never sets paw on any playing field again.
We are pretty sure you are about to watch a trailer for a Korean film about a Chinese gorilla who plays professional baseball in Korea. But we are also pretty sure that after you see it, you may be left with more questions than answers:
What we know:
Yes, that is "Walk of Life" by Dire Straits playing in the background.
What we're still wondering:
• Is this a sports movie, a family movie, a comedy or a horror flick? It sure looks like all of them.
• Is the message that it sure would be cool if gorillas could play sports, or it sure would be terrible if gorillas could play baseball?
• How in the heck do you teach a gorilla to bat?
What we're willing to bet:
It's a baseball movie. From "Field of Dreams" and "Bull Durham" to "The Natural" and "Major League," we sure love our baseball movies. So you know you want to go see it.
And just to whet your appetite a little bit more, here's the movie poster:
