Entertainment Trailer Starring Gregg Turkington


These days Gregg Turkington is probably best known as the co-host of the tongue-in-cheek movie review show On Cinema with Tim Heidecker, but for years now he has been making a name for himself as his alter-ego, “anti-comedian” Neil Hamburger. Now at long last Neil Hamburger is starring in his very own movie, Entertainment, which also finds Turkington reteaming with The Comedy director Rick Alverson. The first trailer has arrived online this week and it definitely looks pretty strange and surreal with half of the film apparently taking place in a metaphorical desert. It’s a story about the darker side of show business and it features a supporting cast that includes John C. Reilly, Michael Cera and Tye Sheridan. Entertainment hits select theatres and VOD on Nov. 13th; check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

    Wow… this looks like it could be awesome. I’m not a big fan of Turkington’s Neil Hamburger persona, but from the trailer it seems like it’s going to be about a strange guy (more akin to his On Cinema persona perhaps) who for some reason likes to go out and perform as Neil Hamburger… and that could be interesting.
