After Adrien Brody gave one of the most drop-dead serious performances in Detachment this year, he is flipping the switch yet again for the stoner comedy High School. To appease the juvenile subsection of humans that believe today is some sort of holiday, the distributors have launched a new red band trailer from Hulu, following our first trailer just earlier this month.
It’s sometimes nice to see Brody go all out and this doesn’t look to be an exception. The concept of getting an entire school completely baked could be a bit fun. And it’s nice see Adventureland star Matt Bush get a leading role, who is joined by Sean Marquette, Colin Hanks, Adhir Kalyan, Mykelti Williamson and Michael Chiklis in John Stalberg Jr‘s comedy. Check out the trailer below.
The day after soon-to-be valedictorian Henry Burke (Matt Bush) takes a hit of the chronic for the first time, his school principal (Michael Chiklis) institutes a zero tolerance drug policy and administers a mandatory drug test for all students. Henry has two options: fail and lose his college scholarship, or team up with his stoner friend Breaux (Sean Marquette) to beat the system. They steal a high powered ganja from law student-turned-drug-dealer Psycho Ed (Adrien Brody) and spike the school’s bake sale brownies, getting the whole school–faculty included–completely stoned out of their minds. But with the student body getting higher and higher with every brownie, and a pissed-off Psycho Ed on their tails for stealing his stash, they must find a way to keep their half-baked plan from going up in smoke.
High School will have a limited opening on June 1st.
