'Prince Avalanche' Trailer: Paul Rudd, Emile Hirsch Get Testy in the Texas Heat (Video)
The film, which premiered at Sundance this year, will be released in theaters and on demand Aug. 9.
The first official trailer for David Gordon Green's indie comedy surfaced on Monday and showcases more antics and banter from the films mismatched protagonists.
While Magnolia Pictures previously released a short teaser for the film, the new trailer gives viewers a deeper look at the story.
Adapted from the 2011 Icelandic film Either Way by Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurosson, Prince Avalanche is an atypical buddy comedy that follows the exploits two highway road workers, Alvin (Paul Rudd) and Lance (Emile Hirsch), who spend their summer in solitude, repainting the traffic lines on a Texan backcountry road that was ravaged by a 1988 wildfire.
The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, where it was acquired by Magnolia, and also screened at SXSW and the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival -- where Green was awarded the Silver Bear for best director.
The Hollywood Reporter’s David Rooney, in his Sundance film review, praised Green’s minimalist film: “Perhaps Green’s chief accomplishment in this odd little gem of a movie is that he coaxes that mutual compassion out of the characters without having to put it into words.”
Prince Avalanche opens in theaters and on demand on August 9.
