A Walk in the Woods

"We're not even halfway there!" Broad Green Pictures has debuted the trailer (+ poster) for A Walk in the Woods, a comedy starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte as two old friends who catch up for a hike on the Appalachian Trail. Along the way they run into the likes of Kristen Schaal, Emma Thompson, Mary Steenburgen, and Nick Offerman as an REI employee. As much as this story should result in a charming and amusing adventure, it looks way too slapstick goofy – not in a good way – and utterly bland. This also plays like some sort of mainstream comedy, even though it premiered at Sundance; Ethan wrote a dismal review of it. Now I can see why. You may be curious enough to watch the trailer, but go no further than that.

Here's the first official trailer for Ken Kwapis' A Walk in the Woods, direct from Moviefone:

A Walk in the Woods Poster

After spending two decades in England, Bill Bryson (Robert Redford) returns to the U.S., where he decides the best way to connect with his homeland is to hike the Appalachian Trail with one of his oldest friends (Nick Nolte). A Walk in the Woods is directed by Ken Kwapis (of He Said She Said, The Beautician and the Beast, Big Miracle, He's Just Not That Into You previously), from a script written by Bill Holderman, based on Bill Bryson's novel. The film first premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, where Ethan reviewed it quite poorly. Broad Green Pictures will release A Walk in the Woods in US theaters starting September 2nd this fall. A few of you may still be interested. For more info, visit the film's Facebook page.

    I'm sure Bill Bryson (a pudgy little man) is highly amused that Robert Redford is playing him in a movie.
    I bet all the actors had a great time filming this movie. Sometimes that is ok. May check it out.

    That sure looks like some bullshit.
