The Other Guys trailer

Check it out: the trailer for The Other Guys, one of the films that shot in downtown Albany last year, is now online:

You can see bits of Albany here and there -- if you look closely and don't blink. A few examples (with matching spectator video) are after the jump.

It looks like a lot of the footage from Albany was used for green screening with the stars. The Rock and Samuel L. Jackson show up in some shots with Albany scenery, but apparently they were never here to film.

The Other Guys is scheduled for release in theaters on August 6.

(Thanks, Justin!)
