Moviefone has posted an exclusive trailer for the upcoming Bewitched movie, hitting theaters on June 24, 2005. With Will Ferrell on board, I’m there. I doubt the film will live up to the expectations of the original shows charm, but after seeing the trailer, I think it will have a broad appeal. It just looks funny.
In this updated version of the magical 1960s sitcom, Will Ferrell plays Jack Wyatt, a difficult Hollywood star who tries to have a career comeback by playing Darrin Stephens in a big-screen version of the classic TV series. When Jack sees the beautiful Isabel Bigelow, played by Nicole Kidman, he thinks that she’d be right for the part of his on-screen wife, Samantha. What he doesn’t know is that Isabel really is a witch. Isabel’s father Nigel (Michael Caine) is concerned by his daughter’s interest in the mortal world, until he’s distracted by Iris Smythson (Shirley MacLaine), the movie star who’ll be playing Samantha’s mother Endora in the film.
