Following some random notes about its production here or there, we suddenly have our first official look at the Halloween-set, teen-oriented comedy Fun Size. The film, a directing debut for TV’s Josh Schwartz, centers on a teenage girl (Victoria Justice) who loses her young brother during Halloween festivities and, not wanting any harm to come his way, enlists friends to help find him.
You can, needless to say, predict what follows from there, but I’d be lying if I said this first preview didn’t make me chuckle once or twice along the way — jokes about a giant chicken sexually assaulting someone’s car being one of the only notable exceptions. The rest gives off a vibe that, though clearly calculated, has me predicting a big hit when the time comes. Its overall quality, however, remains to be seen.
Watch the trailer below (via Movies.com):
Thomas Mann, Chelsea Handler, Thomas McDonell, Thomas Middleditch, and Johnny Knoxville also star in Fun Size, which will open on October 26th.
