Trailer: ‘Detention’ Has Hipsters, Aliens and Dane Cook as a High School Principal

There is a lot going on in the trailer for Joseph Kahn’s Detention. It’s got hipsters. It’s, apparently, got aliens. A high school killing spree. And, most importantly, Dane Cook as a school principle. Obviously, it’s a fairly overstuffed and messy trailer, but everything this trailer hints at could make for pure cinematic gold.

The director of Torque bringing aliens and hipsters together in one movie could be magical. Who doesn’t like seeing hipsters suffer bloody and brutal deaths? In the movies, of course. It’s the joyful type of bloodshed we rarely get to see on the big screen.

The last half of the trailer really picks up and finds a smooth groove. Hopefully the film is as balls to the wall as the trailer is selling it as. In almost 2 weeks time, we’ll get confirmation at its SXSW premiere. There’s promise in this trailer, and I cant wait to see whether or not Kahn managed to deliver a worthy followup to his hilarious motorcycle epic.

Detention currently doesn’t have a distributor, but perhaps we’ll hear some distribution news sometime after its premiere.
