The Grand Trailer

If you love cards or gambling, then there are at least two movies right down your alley that arriving this year both in late March. The first is 21, about blackjack card counting, and the second is The Grand, a poker comedy from screenwriter Zak Penn. The film is an improvisational ensemble comedy using a handful of actors playing characters competing in an actual poker tournament that took place in Las Vegas last year. It stars one hell of an awesome cast, including David Cross, Shannon Elizabeth, Mike Epps, Judy Greer, Woody Harrelson, Cheryl Hines, and even frickin' Werner Herzog as the creepy German guy! I know I'm there opening day for this - it looks hilarious! Hopefully this won't be even as remotely bad as Lucky You, last year's awful poker movie.

The Grand is directed and co-written by screenwriter Zak Penn, known for his screenplays for Behind Enemy Lines, X-Men 2, and X-Men 3, among a few others. The film is currently set for limited release on March 21 after it debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival last year. The poster for The Grand is featured below.

  • Enola
    Looks great :-) Werner Herzog has the best voice ever...
  • Ah Richard Kind .... Superbly irritating. Ok, ok, I do enjoy Stargate Atlantis. Don't think I'd pay 8 Euros to see this at the cinema, but I'd rent the DVD.
