Exclusive: Jared Hess' Gentlemen Broncos Poster Revealed!

Gentlemen Broncos Poster Revealed

Fox Searchlight has let us exclusively debut the official poster for Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess' next film Gentlemen Broncos today! Yep, that's "Flight of the Conchords" star Jemaine Clement above and you'll also see Michael Angarano below, as he's actually the lead in this. The trailer debuts tomorrow but I've had the chance to see it and I guarantee if you loved Napoleon Dynamite, you'll love this as well. It looks hilarious and completely original thanks to the crazy, brilliant mind of Jared Hess. All those wacky characters seen along the side of the poster will be explained, but until then, I'll let them remain a mystery.

Benjamin, home-schooled by his eccentric mother, is a loveable loner whose passion for writing leads him on an offbeat and hilarious journey as his story gets ripped off by the legendary novelist Ronald Chevalier and then is adapted into a disastrous movie by the small town's most prolific homespun filmmaker.

Gentlemen Broncos is directed by filmmaker Jared Hess, of both Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre previously. The screenplay was co-written by Jared and his wife Jerusha Hess. Fox Searchlight is bringing Gentlemen Broncos to theaters starting on October 30th after its premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin.

    Haha, Sam Rockwell looks like Space Jesus.

    God this has been a long time coming. I remember hearing talk about it's filming a few years ago, and the viral site for it is already a year old (almost to the day. Well planned?) I hope it doesn't disappoint! I absolutely loved Nacho, despite all the backlash.
  • Caitie
    I agree with #4 Nacho was great and Napoleon remains in the ranks has one of the best indie comedies ever. Can't wait I hope this won't be a mistake.
  • Shane
    Okay, I like Jared Hess but brilliant is a little bit much. Napoleon Dynamite was really good, but Nacho Libre was terrible.
  • Bryan
    Sorry, but I find only half of the Conchords act funny. That of course is the half with Jermaine Clement in it. He's just plan funny without trying to be. Which makes me want to see this even more. Cheers!
  • Deni
    I love the viral campaign and the twitter bits from Dr. Chevalier. Hope the movie is even way funnier than those. Also, if you loved Napolean Dynamite, you'll love a movie that it is often compared to - why? I dunno because they're not really anything alike. Jemaine is one of the stars of the cult hit Eagle vs. Shark and it's absolutely BRILLIANT. Then again, I'm biased - Jemaine's magnificent in everything!
  • Sally
    I agree with you, Deni. Jemaine (with no R in it, Bryan) has been brilliant in everything he's done and I hope the same will hold true here. I expect it will. This looks like it's going to be funny- I hope it gets a wide release.
