The Joneses trailer online
I never really took much notice of The Joneses in production, other than it carried an interesting cast - David Duchovny, Demi Moore, Amber Heard, Lauren Hutton, Gary Cole, and more. Now though I've seen the trailer and read the blurb and I'm thinking that this just might be a winner, particularly as it plays to the strengths of both Duchovny and Moore and sets them up as fake husband and wife.
It's more than that though, it's the whole concept. A family created by an advertising company to head into an affluent neighbourhood and start selling products to the neighbours, a kind of real life social selling.
What took me the most about the trailer for The Joneses though is the dynamic between David Duchovny and Demi Moore, never mind the fact that she is still utterly fabulous and any mortal man would melt at her feet, but then her daughter is played by Amber Heard. Let's not forget the ladies have some excellent eye candy too.
Here's a blurb for the film to fill you in with a little more on the film:
"The Joneses", a social commentary on our consumerist society. Perfect couple Steve and Kate Jones, and their gorgeous teen-aged children Jenn and Mick, are the envy of their posh, suburban neighborhood filled with McMansions and all the trappings of the upper middle class. Kate is the ultimate trend setter - beautiful, sexy, dressed head-to-toe in designer labels. Steve is the admired successful businessman who has it all: a gorgeous wife, big house and an endless supply of high-tech toys. Jenn and Mick rule their new school as they embody all that is hip and trendy - cool clothes, fast cars and the latest gadgets. But as the neighbors try to keep up with the Joneses, none are prepared for the truth about this all- too perfect family.
Of course you can probably see how it's going to run, but I reckon the very premise is enough to take it over most clichés, don't you?
