There wasn’t a snowball’s chance in hell that the one trailer for the upcoming dark Klown would be the subversive red band one. As expected, Drafthouse Films have now released a theatrical, green band trailer that still packs a punch, opting for a montage-style look at the crazy proceedings of this canoe trip.
One can already see why The Hangover director Todd Phillips and Danny McBride are set to develop a remake for the film, with this dark, raunchy comedy. We checked out the film during Fantastic Fest (review here) and called it hilarious, surprisingly sweet and, of course, heavy on the awkwardness. See the new theatrical trailer for Mikkel Norgaard‘s film starring Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen below via Apple.
In what critics are hailing as “the funniest movie of the year!” (IFC), KLOWN follows two wildly inappropriate friends–played by celebrated international comedians Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen–as they run amok through the Danish countryside, plowing through endless awkward confrontations and unspeakable debaucheries. Hopelessly wrongheaded Frank “kidnaps” the 12-year-old nephew of his pregnant girlfriend in an eager attempt to prove his fatherhood potential, and they join the sex-crazed Casper on his secret adulterous weekend canoe trip. Rampaging through exclusive brothels, hospitalizations, armed robberies and even prison, the three paddle downstream from one chaotic misadventure to the next, all culminating in a surprisingly sentimental portrait of friendship and a final shocking reveal that you’ll never be able to unsee.
