On today of all days a trailer has been released for the Sundance stoner comedy, High School (emphasis on ‘high’). If you’re wondering what the big deal is about April 20th or 4-20, it’s a drug reference. Yes, we said it. It’s a slang term for marijuana and the fact that a film that centers on the “green stuff” debuted its trailer today is too much of a coincidence. Take a look…

The premise of High School centers on a teenage boy named Henry Burke (Matt Bush). He’s the valedictorian of his class and a part-time druggie. Unfortunately he picked the wrong time to develop a habit because the overbearing principal (Michael Chiklis) has just instated a zero tolerance policy on narcotics enforcing mandatory drug testing.

Failure of the test will result in immediate expulsion, which puts Henry in a bad predicament since his college scholarship is on the line. He along with the neighborhood drug dealer (Adrien Brody) come up with a scheme to get the entire student body high because they can’t expel everyone…can they?

Check out the NSFW trailer below…

Adrien Brody’s reaction at the end of this trailer is hilarious. You can tell he’s going to be a real character in this film. High School marks the directorial debut of John Stalberg.
