Exclusive sneak peak at the trailer for the “Moneyball” sequel

Oct 5, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

Like “The Godfather Part II” and “Empire Strikes Back,” I think this is going to be one of the rare instances in which the sequel is better than the original:

UPDATE: The video — which was made by College Humor — has been taken down from YouTube on copyright grounds. Apologies to the College Humor folks. Here’s their embed:

    You can add Dark Knight to the list of great sequels.

    Great trailer; however, I have seen the movie and in most years it does not have a happy ending.

        Are you really that old? I’m willing to bet you’ve watched it about 40 times and seen 7 happy endings.

        Remember when there was a level playing field. Back then the Yankees deserved their success, Now they just buy it.

        Hold on now guys…I thought last night, the Yankees got a gutsy performance from a hard-fighting over-achiever who threw 5 2/3 innings of 4 hit 1 ER ball against all the odds.

        Wait, you mean it was a guy making $16.5 million a year? Oh snap!!!!!

        I think he means he watched the 2009 version 27 times…

        It was really never a level playing field. Throughout the 20′s, 30′s 40′s, 50′s, and early 60′s up until baseball implimented the draft, the Yankees bought all the top tier talent. They outspent evry team in scouting and development and signed guys like Dimaggio, Mantle Ford, etc. Other teams did not have the resources to send scouts to remote outposts (in those days) like San Francisco and Oklahoma to scout for talent. The Yankees did. I was not around for it, but I have heard that the Yankees minor league teams back in those days would have been amongst the top teams in MLB, given the glut of talent the Yankees accumulated. It was only until the entry draft was implimented that it leveled the playing field and we all saw what happened to the Yankees from the mid 1960′s until the late 70′s (when incidentally, the Yanks got good again with the dawn of free agency, allowing them to once again buy up all the top free agent talent). This is coming from a life long Yankees fan, but the facts are the facts. Yankees have a huge advantage over every team in baseball given their ridiculous resources. Anybody who says differently is ignorant.

    Am I crazy or is the video just not working anymore?

  7. proudlycanadian - Oct 5, 2011 at 9:25 AM

    I see that you have now corrected the spelling.

    Somehow, the above comment ended up in the wrong thread.
