Another Funny UK Trailer for Ski Vacation Comedy Remake 'Downhill'
"Pete ran! Pete left us…" Searchlight Pictures has debuted a new official UK trailer for the film Downhill, an English-language remake of the beloved dark comedy Force Majeure made by Ruben Östlund. This just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and it's actually a worthwhile remake. Don't write it off. Set at a ski resort in the Alps (filmed in Austria), the movie is about a family that narrowly escapes an avalanche. Everything is then thrown into disarray as they are forced to reevaluate their lives and how they feel about each other. It's directed by Nat Faxon & Jim Rash (of The Way Way Back) and it stars Will Ferrell & Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Also featuring Zach Woods, Zoë Chao, Miranda Otto, and Kristofer Hivju. This is a better trailer than the first one, and I'm happy to report this remake turned out pretty damn good.
