Goat Trailer

"Pledges gotta go through hell, otherwise what's the point?" Paramount has debuted a trailer for the indie drama Goat, directed by Andrew Neel, about the hell young pledges must go through to join a fraternity in college. Ben Schnetzer stars as one of the new recruits at a fraternity called "Phi Sigma Mu"; this also stars Nick Jonas, James Franco, Danny Flaherty, Virginia Gardner, Austin Lyon. The film played at Sundance but received mostly mediocre reviews. It looks like the kind of bros-on-bros, overly-masculine, totally-messed-up film I love to hate. Not for me, I'll be staying away. But anyone else intrigued, take a look.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Andrew Neel's Goat, direct from MTV's YouTube:

Reeling from a terrifying assault, a 19 year-old boy enrolls into college with his brother and pledges the same fraternity. What happens there, in the name of "brotherhood" tests the boy and his loyalty to his brother in brutal ways. Goat is directed by American filmmaker Andrew Neel, of the film King Kelly and the documentaries New World Order and Darkon previously. The screenplay is written by Andrew Neel, Mike Roberts, David Gordon Green; based on the memoir by Brad Land. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Paramount Pictures will open Goat in select theaters starting September 23rd.

    "Pledging" or whatever is some of the weirdest BS in American culture.

      Well said, David, because it certainly is. I know. I went thru a hell week for Sigma Chi. What can I say? I'd never do anything like that again. It wasn't violent or extreme. Just silly, immature, macho kind of stuff. It gets way out of hand these days though.

    I have no interest in anything Jonas!

    This is like chick's flick with James Franco being the leading chick, right?

    I know a few frats from Iowa that were like this. They were the ones that ended up banned for drugging students.
