It’s time to get dirty and medieval with the newest trailer for the David Gordon Green comedy, Your Highness. The director reunites with his Pineapple Express co-stars James Franco and Danny McBride, who are joined by Natalie Portman and Zooey Deschanel. That’s not a bad group of people to headline a film. Over at IGN, they’ve just released the red band trailer and yes, it’s pretty vulgar. Take a look…
Thadeous (McBride) has spent his life watching his perfect older brother Fabious (Franco) embark upon valiant journeys and win the hearts of his people. Tired of being passed over for adventure, adoration and the throne, he’s settled for a life of wizard’s weed, hard booze and easy maidens. But when Fabious’ bride-to-be, Belladonna (Deschanel), gets kidnapped by the evil wizard Leezar (Justin Theroux), the king gives his deadbeat son an ultimatum: Man up and help rescue her or get cut off.
Half-assedly embarking upon his first quest, Thadeous joins Fabious to trek across the perilous outlands and free the princess. Joined by Isabel (Natalie Portman)—an elusive warrior with a dangerous agenda of her own—the brothers must vanquish horrific creatures and traitorous knights before they can reach Belladonna.
It looks like people were just as foul mouthed back then as they are today. This is an extremely long trailer clocking in at 3 and a half minutes. We hope they didn’t reveal all of the good stuff with it. We’re personal fans of “Suck the venom! Suck the venom!” and we also like, “Handle your shit man.” If there’s more where that came from this should be pretty hilarious.
Your Highness hits theaters on April 8, 2011.
