The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.

The trailer for Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby hit the net a couple of days ago. If you haven't seen it, you need to:

I first heard about this at AFF back in 2004. Adam McKay was in to show his short films and during the Q&A he talked about his next film with Will Ferrell, Talledega Nights. Apparently, every time Owen Wilson saw McKay he loved to quote the script. I remember thinking that Will Ferrell+Nascar=Gold, so I've been really excited waiting for this. Besides, anytime John C. Reilly gets more work is fine by me.

In other trailer news, Wim Wender's new film Don't Coming Knocking looks like a return to form for the director, plus it was written by and stars Sam Shepard. Here's hoping, but between the two the smart money might be on Ricky Bobby.
