“Cruelty. Brutality. Fraternity.” This is the tagline for Andrew Neel’s Goat, a film focusing on the initiation process to enter a fraternity (aka hazing) and the strength and limits of loyalty. Led by pop-star-turned-actor Nick Jonas and Ben Schnetzer with a cameo by producer James Franco, the film has received its first trailer ahead of a fall release. With a script co-written by David Gordon Green, the preview is all fun and games until the horrors of abusive frat life take shape.

We said in our review from Sundance this year: “Telling us little new about the horrors of hazing that Todd Phillips’ documentary Frat House didn’t already do at Sundance nearly two decades ago, Goat is a compelling watch, but in the end, its themes are a bit muddled, and certainly not unique.”

Check out the trailer and poster below for the film also starring Gus Halper, Danny Flaherty, Jake Picking, and Virginia Gardner.
