Watch: First Wild Trailer for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Indie 'Hesher'
We didn't expect to hear anything about this for a while, but it looks like this is hitting theaters in April, so here's a (likely unofficial) trailer from YouTube (via The Playlist) to introduce you to it. Hesher is the first feature from Spencer Susser, director of that zombie short I Love Sarah Jane, and it has an impressive cast: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Natalie Portman, Rainn Wilson and Devin Brochu, also from I Love Sarah Jane. But… it's not that good. I saw it at Sundance and didn't care for it at all, in fact, it's a film that I suggest staying away from, despite how badass/crazy it may look here. Check it out, but that's my warning.
Watch the first (unofficial) trailer for Spencer Susser's Hesher:
Hesher is a loner. He hates the world and everyone in it. He has long hair and tattoos. He's malnourished and smokes lots of cigarettes. He likes fire and blowing things up. He lives in his van… until he meets TJ.
Hesher is written & directed by Australian up-and-coming filmmaker Spencer Susser, who made his feature debut with this film after the award-winning short I Love Sarah Jane and other music videos prior. Animal Kingdom writer/director David Michôd also worked on the script, from a story by Brian Charles Frank. This premiered at Sundance last year and was picked up by Wrekin Hill Entertainment for distribution. Hesher will finally be arriving in very limited theaters starting April 15th.
