Despite the fact that I’m not a huge fan of stoner comedies, and also the fact that the first clip we saw from this movie didn’t exactly blow me away, the new red band trailer for David Gordon Green’s Pineapple Express has absolutely sold me.
The movie is about a drug dealer (James Franco) and one of his best customers (Seth Rogen) who accidentally witness a murder and are forced to flee for their lives. It seems like such a generic concept (and it is), but somehow the team of Franco and Rogen appear to make it work. Towards the end of the trailer, things get just as outlandish as Superbad did, but I’m okay with that (it was also written by Rogen and his buddy Evan Goldberg). Pineapple Express hits theatres on August 8th; check out the new trailer below.
