‘Prince Avalanche’ Trailer: Paul Rudd Thinks Emile Hirsch Is Learning Disabled
David Gordon Green‘s latest quirk-fest, ‘Prince Avalanche,’ stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch and made its debut a couple of months ago at the Sundance Film Festival, to very positive reviews (read our own right here). We’ve got a little while to go before it opens for all to see, but in the meantime the first trailer and poster have been made available.
‘Prince Avalanche’ — a remake of a 2011 Icelandic film — looks more like it comes from the David Gordon Green who brought us low-key films like ‘George Washington’ and ‘All the Real Girls’ than the one who directed ‘Your Highness’ and ‘The Sitter.’ However, the good-natured comedic leanings of the director are certainly on display in this story of two men who are forced to work alongside each other despite obvious differences of personality and priorities.
Here’s the official description:
An odd couple of sorts, meditative and stern Alvin and his girlfriend’s brother, Lance, dopey and insecure, leave the city behind to spend the summer in solitude repainting traffic lines down the center of a country highway ravaged by wildfire. As they sink into their job in the remarkable landscape, they learn more than they want to about each other and their own limitations.
‘Prince Avalanche’ opens on August 9, and you can check out the trailer below via The Film Stage.
