Red band clip from Kevin Smith’s COP OUT

One of the projects that I have been rather interested in since it’s inception has been Kevin Smith’s new film, COP OUT.

This is Smith's first time as a director and not also the film's writer, and COP OUT stars Tracy Morgan and Bruce Willis, as two cops on the hunt for a rare baseball card which is the only source of funding for Willis’ daughter’s upcoming wedding. 

The first trailer for the film hit a few months ago, to mixed if not all out poor response.  However, with a new red band trailer, and now a new restricted clip from the film, thoughts are slowly changing on the project.  The new clip premiered over at MovieWeb, and personally, this clip is exactly what I had hoped from a Kevin Smith directed project.  It’s quite funny, and while he’s never been one for visual flourishes, his muted directorial style has always seemed to work, as it does here.  The clip does have a few beats that don’t work, but the duo of Morgan and Willis seem to work so perfectly together, that this is now a project that I’m warming up to.

Check out the red band clip after the jump!

Here’s the film’s synopsis:

Two longtime NYPD partners who are on the trail of a stolen, rare, mint-condition baseball card find themselves up against a merciless, memorabilia-obsessed gangster. Jimmy (Bruce Willis) is the veteran detective whose missing collectible is his only hope to pay for his daughter's upcoming wedding, and Paul (Tracy Morgan) is his "partner-against-crime" whose preoccupation with his wife's alleged infidelity makes it hard for him to keep his eye on the ball. Directed by Kevin Smith and also starring Adam Brody, Kevin Pollak, Guillermo Diaz, Seann William Scott, Jason Lee, and Ana de la Reguera, Cop Out is set to make its arresting debut on Friday, February 26th, 2010.
