Oscars Trailer: Billy Crystal is ‘Off the Grid’

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has just released a trailer for the 84th Academy Awards. 

The spot, co-produced by Funny or Die, features William Fichtner, Josh Duhamel, Megan Fox, Vinnie Jones and a Fu-Manchu-ed Robin Williams, all in search of the one they call, ‘The Host’ (Billy Crystal). 

Academy Chief Marketing Officer Christina Kounelias said in a press release that “we wanted to try something a little bit different this year instead of a traditional, clip-based piece. The trailer has a fun twist that conveys how excited everyone is to have Billy back.”

The Academy Awards will air on Sunday, February 26, at the Kodak Theatre on ABC.
