‘The Oranges’ Gets a Red Band Trailer
Family dysfunction just got a little weirder in this new red band trailer for ‘The Oranges.’ It’s not too NSFW, but it’s definitely got a little more bite (and a little more pot smoke, cough) than that first trailer.
‘The Oranges’ has a fantastic cast including Hugh Laurie, Catherine Keener, Oliver Platt, Leighton Meester, Adam Brody, Alia Shawkat, and Allison Janney. And if that wasn’t enough to guarantee your ticket, the premise sounds kind of hilarious.
The Ostroff and Walling families have been neighbors and close friends for several years. Their kids have grown up playing in each other’s yards in West Orange, New Jersey — but maybe they’ve gotten a little too close. Nina Ostroff (Meester) comes home for Thanksgiving, and while her mom sets about trying to get her involved with the similarly aged Walling boy (Brody), Nina inadvertently begins a relationship with Mr. Walling (Laurie), causing both families to nearly implode.
This red band trailer definitely plays better than the green band one we ran last month, and gives us a better idea of the sort of comedy involved. And the opening bit between Meester and Shawkat smoking pot and spraying air freshener while bemoaning the lack of air in their hometown is downright funny. Check out the trailer below — ‘The Oranges’ hits theaters October 5.
