The Wackness Teaser Trailer

This will be the last time I run another trailer for The Wackness until we eventually get a red band version. We've already featured two other trailers previously, both of which really did not do a great job of selling the movie. This new one focuses more on the relationship between Josh Peck and Olivia Thirlby, which is really the root of the whole film anyway, although we don't get any of the great pot smoking moments with Ben Kingsley. I think this one is the best so far, but still not perfect. You just need to continue to trust us when we tell you this is a phenomenal movie that you need to see despite how bad the trailers may look. Either way, check it out and enjoy!

The Wackness is set in New York City in 1994 and centers on Luke Shapiro, a teenaged pot dealer, and his drug-addled psychiatrist Dr. Squires. As always, we suggest you read our 9 out of 10 review from Sundance to get a better idea of just how awesome this movie truly is. Thoughts?

The Wackness is both written and directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Jonathan Levine of All the Boys Love Mandy Lane previously. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January and was bought by Sony Pictures Classics for under $1 million. Go read our 9 out of 10 review of the film to understand why it's so damn good. The Wackness hits theaters this summer on July 3rd - be there or be square! The latest teaser poster is featured below.

That movie's like the life I was living, in & out of New York as a sophomore in h.s. Same year. This guy sure is alot thinner than he is on that show he's on. Nostalgia. How the ghost of you clings... Btw- there's a TON of new Watchmen news on the net. I'm surprised you guys aren't all over this. The Squid is IN.

I don't really get why you need to knock these trailers. They haven't been bad at all.

Its weird seeing Peck on Drake and Josh and now this...

#8 Gordon - Okay, I personally think they're good - but that's because I've seen the movie twice and I'm playing out the full scene each part is from in my mind (so I know it's good). But for people who haven't seen it, I gather the reaction ain't so good... Look at the comments for this first one - people really thought it looked like crap. That is a bad trailer... and this one is only a slight improvement. 🙂

this movie looks dope! have to say I like the other trailers too - Meth's Rasta character looks classic already. can't wait to see this joint.
