Humpday Poster

Humpday was one of a few films coming out of Sundance this year with a lot of early buzz. It's a hilarious "mumblecore" comedy directed by Lynn Shelton starring Mark Duplass and Joshua Leonard (who you'll see below). I gave it a solid 7.5 out of 10 rating at Sundance, but I know I recommended it to a lot of people because it was actually pretty damn good. The official poster for Humpday has debuted in NY Mag's Vulture today and is quite a sight to see. For those who have no clue why they're looking at two half-naked out-of-shape guys standing in front of a pretty pink background, just read on for more details about this.

We don't have a trailer for this yet, but I expect we'll see one soon, so stay tuned for that as well!

Humpday Poster

Humpday tells the story of two straight college friends who reunite after years apart, fall back into their old habit of competing in increasingly outrageous dares in order to one-up each other, and, at the end of a wild night out, challenge themselves to have sex together in a gay porno for an art film contest.

Humpday is both written and directed by filmmaker Lynn Shelton, of We Go Way Back and My Effortless Brilliance previously. Because this was highly improvised, there are no other writers credited. This film first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where it sold to Magnolia Pictures for somewhere under $1 million. Humpday will now arrive in very limited theaters starting on July 10th this summer.

#2 - Kinky: Slang Showing or appealing to bizarre or deviant tastes, especially of a sexual or erotic nature. Well it's got two half naked guys about to have gay sex... Kinky? #4 - Read up on that here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mumblecore

Mumblecore is a recent film movement with super low budgets and heavy improvisation with non-actors. "The Guatemalan Handshake" is an example. I haven't seen many (if any) mumblecore films that I personally like (mainly because I don't identify with them), so I doubt I'll enjoy this, but we'll see.

if "two half naked guys about to have gay sex" is a show of "bizarre or deviant" for you, then yes... it's kinky o_O

Poor Joshua. Since The Blair Witch Project he gets a lot of work, just no GOOD work (Partygoer #1 in The Death And Life Of Bobby Z; Bellhop in Prom Night; Pothead in Dead In Love). Hopefully this can be a breakout role for him.
