First Look: Judd Apatow's Pineapple Express - Stoners Unite!
He brought about the revolution of sex comedies, now he's going to bring back stoner comedies. Judd Apatow's next big hit is Pineapple Express directed by David Gordon Green arriving next summer. Thanks to JoBlo we've got a 4-minute clip that must be seen. There's just something really funny about Harry Osborn from Spider-Man acting like a huge stoner and marijuana dealer. He does a great job, but I'm not sold on Seth Rogen. Rogen just isn't pulling this scene off, I'm not at all impressed. But what I am impressed at is the cross-joint!
Watch this clip, then we'll explain the plot after.
Here's how it's described: A stoner (Seth Rogen) and his dealer (James Franco) are forced to go on the run from the police after the pothead witnesses a cop commit a murder. It's apparently half action, with lots of guns, and half comedy. I just imagine a combination of Half Baked and Hot Fuzz with Apatow's brilliance injected. Thanks again to JoBlo, as this is there exclusive.
Pineapple Express is directed by David Gordon Green (Snow Angels, Undertow, All the Real Girls) and written by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Judd Apatow. The film arrives in theaters next summer on August 8th, 2008.
