First Little Fockers Trailer with Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro
06.25.10 by Ryan
Remember when audiences fell in love with Meet the Parents in 2000 and then almost immediately fell out of love after watching
2004's Meet the Fockers? Well, Universal is hoping that the third time's the charm when Little Fockers arrives in theaters on December 22.
Little Fockers keeps the formula from the previous movies, finding Ben Stiller still on a mission to impress his father-in-law Robert De Niro and remain in the elusive "circle of trust." Only this time children are around when Stiller makes an inevitable blunder.
Conspicuously absent this time around is director Jay Roach and Dustin Hoffman, who played Stiller's father in Meet the Fockers. Roach decided to direct the upcoming Dinner For Schmucks instead (Schmucks is scoring in the low middle on our projected Best Summer Comedies list, so the wisdom of that move is yet to be determined), while Hoffman probably didn't want to give up his Lakers tickets during a championship season. Picking up the helming duties for Roach is Paul Weitz, who has filled the remainder of his cast with Jessica Alba, Harvey Keitel, and Laura Dern.
Considering Little Fockers is opening so close to Christmas, Universal clearly has a lot of faith in the franchise. Watch the trailer below and let us know if that trust is misplaced.
