David Gordon Green isn't fucking around. A new trailer for his upcoming medieval stoner comedy "Your Highness" has arrived and while it's just as funny (though not as raunchy) as the red-band spot that hit last month, it definitely gives us a look at more of the whizz-bang digital effects that look very good, especially for a not-so-serious quest picture.

When Prince Fabious's (James Franco) bride is kidnapped by an evil wizard, he sets out on a quest to rescue her... accompanied by his lazy, useless brother Thadeous. Of course this is all set in medieval times, and Thadeous is played by Danny McBride, whose character has to kick a pot habit along the way. And yes, this is the ridiculous/awesome set-up to David Gordon Green's "Your Highness," which possibly looks like it might be the best time you'll have in theaters in 2011. The film also stars Justin Theroux as the wizard, Zooey Deschanel (who worked with Green on "All the Real Girls," as did McBride; it was his first appearance onscreen) as the damsel in distress and Natalie Portman as a fierce warrior queen.

Considering we're huge fans of pretty much everyone involved, it's almost surprising that we've been cautious of the upcoming fantasy-comedy "Your Highness." But with David Gordon Green's previous studio comedy, "Pineapple Express," being far from a home-run, and a near-six month release delay, signs were beginning to stack up that the film could be yet another expensive, indulgent misfire from Universal. However, our man on the floor of New York Comic-Con flipped for the footage shown there, calling it "excellent, funny [and] thrilling," and now the rest of us have been able to catch up with what he was talking about, with the first widely available footage from the film making its way on to the internet, in the form of a red-band trailer on IGN.

'Little Miss Sunshine' Helmers Still On Board Way, way back in 2006, Jim Carrey and Ben Stiller were all set to star in a sci-fi comedy called "Used Guys," to be directed by "Meet the Parents" director Jay Roach. The project was set in a future run by women, where cloned male slaves are traded like cars. The film was only a month away from shooting when Fox canned the project, citing a rising budget of over $100 million (thanks to the futuristic sets), so Carrey and Roach jumped ship, and a few years passed with no apparent movement.
