The Wackness Red Band Movie Trailer is Not Wack at All

The Wackness

Oh the relief that it brings to finally see a well-cut, red band trailer for the upcoming release The Wackness. As you know, this is one of the films from this year’s Sundance film festival that has had us buzzing all year long, and it will finally hit theaters on July 3rd. Directed by Jonathan Levine (All the Boys Love Mandy Lane), The Wackness stars Josh Peck, Ben Kingsley, Olivia Thirlby and Mary-Kate Olsen in what could be one of the best coming of age flicks in recent history. It tells the story of Luke Shapiro (Peck), a young weed-dealing recent high school graduate who is using his summer of freedom to find out what he wants out of life. And with the help of his therapist/best customer (Kingsley), he may just get the girl of his dreams (Thirlby) and make enough money to get the hell out of his “wack” situation.

As you can see, this trailer is much better than the previously released green band versions, showing off a bit of the film’s edge. Then again, that is my opinion — and I’m the guy who called this film “nothing short of brilliant” in my Sundance review.

What do you think of the red band trailer for The Wackness?
