Judging from this first red band trailer for Mikkel Nøgaard‘s Klown, I can already tell what attracted The Hangover director Todd Phillips and Danny McBride to develop a remake for the film. Very much NSFW, this trailer is more of a single scene and if you also have dark comedy sensibilities, this is a riot. We saw the film, which has a TV series as well, during Fantastic Fest (review here) and called it hilarious, surprisingly sweet and heavy on awkward comedy. Witness the awkwardness below as we look forward to a release this summer.
KLOWN follows two friends, Frank and Casper, as they embark on a canoe trip that thinly veils their true intentions of a weekend of debauchery. When Frank discovers his girlfriend is pregnant and having doubts about his ability to be a father, Frank “kidnaps” her 12-year-old nephew and brings him along for the ride. Despite their new impressionable travel companion, Frank and Casper make no changes to their original raunchy itinerary. What follows is a hilarious series of misadventures.
Klown hits limited theaters and VOD on July 27th.
