The Little Hours Trailer

"The girls can be tough. I'm not going to lie, they can be very tough." Gunpowder & Sky has revealed the first red band trailer for a wacky comedy titled The Little Hours, which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year. Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza and Kate Micucci star as three dirty, horny nuns in this comedy. Everything seems fine at their convent until Father Tommasso brings on new hired hand, a virile young servant forced into hiding by his angry lord. John C. Reilly and Dave Franco also star, along with Nick Offerman, Fred Armisen, Molly Shannon, Jemima Kirke, Paul Reiser, Adam Pally. This looks totally nuts. And I love that quote from Catholic League in the trailer: "It is trash. Pure trash."

Here's the first red band trailer (+ teaser poster) for Jeff Baena's The Little Hours, direct from YouTube:

The Little Hours Poster

Medieval nuns Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza), and Ginevra (Kate Micucci) lead a simple life in their convent. Their days are spent chafing at monastic routine, spying on one another, and berating the estate’s day laborer. After a particularly vicious insult session drives the peasant away, Father Tommasso (John C. Reilly) brings on new hired hand Massetto (Dave Franco), a virile young servant forced into hiding by his angry lord. Introduced to the sisters as a deaf-mute to discourage temptation, Massetto struggles to maintain his cover as the repressed nunnery erupts in a whirlwind of pansexual horniness, substance abuse, and wicked revelry. The Little Hours is both written and directed by American filmmaker Jeff Baena, of the films Life After Beth and Joshy previously. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Gunpowder & Sky releases The Little Hours in theaters starting on June 30th.

    Uh,no...just, hell no.

    This is unfair to Bocaccio, of course, but I will love this trash fest ...
    • Is the source material worth checking out? I'm unfamiliar with it...
      • shiboleth
        Well, it's an Italian and world's classic written by Italian poet and writer Giovanni Boccaccio. It's made of hundreds novellas from that time recounted by three boys and seven women during the time of plague. They left plagued city, where they lived, and each of them had to tell, I think, seven stories. The idea was to spend the time in the place where is no plague and fill it with something sane. Those novellas are written in verse and are, often , very piquant and raunchy ...
    Psyched!! Haha...I am pretty smitten to see these little nerdcore ladies in something together.
  • Trash. I need to rince off my eyes of this dirty synopsis. Franco loves playing in these smelly dungs.
  • Ha hah ha h ah ha hahah haha hah Jesus Christ. Not far off what real nuns got up to, minus the child murder of course.
    • "Not far off what real nuns got up to" Are you being serious with your assessment?
      • Just a jest. I think they were a lot more into being miserable and beating up pregnant teenagers, at least from firsthand family experience. Devoting your body and soul to an imaginary sky wizard can't be good for a persons mind.

    I think this is supposed to be shock value humor, but I'm having trouble believing the target audience has any amount of exposure to nuns in general. I feel like nuns are becoming a comedy concept, not really anything to which anyone can relate. I can't remember the last time I spoke with a 20 year old who knew some one their age who had their knuckles rapt.
  • Transmillion
    Saw this a couple of days ago when the director screened it in town, it was frickin hilarious. It's apparently pretty accurate to the time too (except obviously the dialogue). I say people give it a chance.
    • Well...If you're a Seth Rogen fan, then I can understand why you find this trash hilarious.
  • Terry Craig
    Pretty sure they want to be ironic with the "pure trash" quote, even when they're inadvertently being honest. This is embarrassing on the level of a comedy about a white, rapping grandma or something.
  • There are various reasons people will flock to this and I think Fred Armisen named them all in the trailer....
