The Wackness Teaser Trailer

The first teaser trailer for the Sundance hit The Wackness has debuted. You definitely need to check this out! This could be the big summer indie success - as long as everyone out there makes it a hit (pun intended)! The Wackness, set in the nostalgic 1990s, is about Luke Shapiro - one of New York City's biggest pot dealers and a loser of a kid who is looking to make something of his summer. The film stars Josh Peck as well as Ben Kingsley, Olivia Thirlby, and even Method Mad. Hopefully that'll be enough of an intro to get you to watch the trailer. You won't be let down - The Wackness is definitely this year's indie gem!

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January and was bought by Sony Pictures Classics. The Wackness hits theaters this summer on July 3rd! The poster for the film is below.

Fresh to def, yo! Maybe I'll watch it. From Nickelodeon to slanging pot, awsome.

Unfortunately, the trailer sucks. I don't think this is going to do anything to get new people to see it, which is a shame because, even though the trailer makes it look like a bore, it's not.

That trailer sucked. It definitely didn't make me want to go see it.

"You won't be let down..." How can you say that about a crappy trailer like this? The movie may be good, but this trailer sucked.

IF I hadn't heard so much buzz about this flick, I'd be avoiding it for sure, that trailer was terrible. Also, its Method Man not Method Mad

i 'll still check it out. i mean the mist did look like it would suck but ended up as probably the best film of 2007. and people know the mist was freaky, dont deny it.

Darrin on Apr 15, 2008


I have to agree. Heard great things about this but the trailler falls flat. Also kind of disappointing that i've only heard about his first film also being great and it was never released that widely.

Heckle on Apr 15, 2008


Heckle - it's not out yet? It comes out July 3rd - it has a chance to still make it wider then...! You guys need to give this a chance! I know the trailer sucks but still spread the word. And hopefully they'll put out a better trailer soon... Apparently this is only just a "teaser trailer"...

I'll check it out but most of Kingsley's latest work is pointless.

Dan on Apr 15, 2008


Really bad trailer. Surprised this was an officially released trailer. No interest at all.

brian on Apr 15, 2008


Unless I read your little short plot summary I wouldn't know anything about this movie. This trailer was very poorly done. Also I am extremely skeptical, if not for the trailer being bad, which may not just be the trailer but may be in fact the movie, but because of Josh Peck. I'm sorry but other than Mean Creek I've never seen him in even a semi-decent role. I like Olivia Thirbley but only seen her in Juno so I'm not sure about her either. It will take some convincing for me to see this movie.

Anthony on Apr 15, 2008


yeah I hope this movie actually says something, because this trailer was mute. And yeah I hope Ben Kingsley isn't wasting he's talents again.

The trailer sucks, Uwe Boll makes better trailers than this, but Alex thinks it is good so I'll go check it out.

About 15 years to late ............

Alex - In your intro you state: "The first teaser trailer for the Sundance hit The Wackness has debuted. You definitely need to check this out!.... Hopefully that'll be enough of an intro to get you to watch the trailer. You won't be let down..." But in the comments section you state: "I know the trailer sucks but still spread the word." So, you admit that you LIE to your readers! Very, very disappointed.

Just saw the movie at the Calgary underground movie festival and I was very Impressed.

Travis on Apr 20, 2008


16 -- That was completely pointless. Alex was referring to how good the movie was, not the trailer. Too bored to do anything other than point out minor problems with sentence clarity? Read the review if you aren't convinced.

Kelley on May 17, 2008


I just watched the movie and I LOVE it...Josh is totally awesome..he's my new heart throb for sure and in the movie you get to see a side of him you would never of thought.. 🙂 Go see this movie for sure!
