Must Watch: Red Band Pineapple Express Trailer
Wasting no time laying the groundwork for what looks to be another raucous year for Judd Apatow, a hilarious red band trailer for the August-slated Pineapple Express just cropped up. Instead of Seth Rogen being paired with the likes of Jonah Hill or Paul Rudd, he plays opposite a seemingly unlikely pick, James Franco. Surprisingly, it looks like it works. Of course, I suppose that shouldn't come as a surprise when you add weed and guns to an Apatow production. We brought you an original 4-minute clip back in December, but this "more representative" clip is a must-watch. (Before it goes away!)
Watch the red band trailer for Pineapple Express:
Thanks to CHUD for originally letting us know this beautiful trailer existed. Hopefully Sony let's you all see it before it gets taken down!
Update: We've put up a bigger, better version of the same trailer for your viewing pleasure. I suggest you watch it again, it's a whole new glorious experience when it's clear!
Pineapple Express is directed by David Gordon Green (of Snow Angels, Undertow, All the Real Girls) and written by the trio of Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Judd Apatow (naturally). Express follows Rogen and Franco as they get stoned, run from cops, crash cars and fire guns. No further explanation needed. The stoner revival begins this summer on August 8th.
