Tropic Thunder Preview

    Summer comedy “Tropic Thunder” is another Ben Stiller-led
    parody, this time mocking Hollywood war films. The
    movie-within-a-movie plot sets Stiller as the big name who starred in a recent
    flop, Jack Black as the go-to comedian and Robert Downey Jr. as the actor who
    has his skin darkened to play a black man in the combat flick. But things go
    wrong on location filming and the trio ends up in the middle of a real-life
    battle zone. What promises to be over-the-top hilarity ensues.

    Why is this film a must-see? As if Downey Jr. in blackface
    makeup hadn’t piqued your curiosity enough, there’s also apparently a cameo
    from one fat-and-balding Tom Cruise. August 15.
