Seth Rogen has co-produced a film that is basically Superbad for 12 year olds and it looks amazing!
I don’t care who knows it, but Superbad is one of my top 5 favourite films. It’s hard to believe that the comedy starring Jonah Hill, Emma Stone, Michael Cera and Christopher Mintz-Plasse was released almost 12 years ago and for me, Superbad came out at the perfect time. A film about shy, awkward teenagers about to start College was released at the time when I was a shy, awkward 16 year old leaving school. So you can probably see why it means so much to me.
The reason why I’m banging on about Superbad so much is because Seth Rogen and his creative partner Evan Goldberg who co-wrote the film have teamed up once again and are producing Good Boys, and judging by the trailer, it basically looks like Superbad… but for 12 year olds.
In the new trailer that just dropped, we see Seth talking to the 3 boys about how they’re no allowed to watch the brand new trailer, because it’s been deemed too rude. Hard to argue with it really because in the trailer, we see Max (Jacob Tremblay), Thor (Brady Noon) and Lucas (Keith L. Williams) spying on girls with drones, stealing beer and throwing around sex toys…thinking they are nunchucks. See what you think though, you check out the hilarious new trailer below:
Good Boys look set to have all the makings of an outrageous hit, as things go terribly wrong for the 3 boys when the drone they’ve stolen from Max’s Dad to spy on the couple next door breaks. The boys then end up on an immense adventure, skipping school, ending up at a frat party and accidentally stealing drugs. Imagine a cross between Superbad and Pee-wee’s Big Adventure and you have Good Boys. I, for one, can’t wait to see what the boys get up to when the film is released in August by Universal. Good Boys also stars Molly Gordon, Lil Rel Howery and Will Forte and was written by Lee Eisenberg & Gene Stupnitsky with Stupnitsky also on directing duties.
