Starring Seth Rogen in the lead role, the trailer of An American Pickle is out now. Though Rogen plays a dual role in the film, it also stars Sarah Snook, of Succession fame, in a key role. The film will premiere on HBO Max.
Here, Seth Rogen plays the role of a European immigrant who has moved to the US for a better life in 1920. Somehow, he meets with an accident and wakes 100 years later. He then proceeds to meet his only surviving descendant, his great-grandson (not surprisingly played by Rogen himself) The premise of the story sounds as awesome as it sounds completely nuts.
Watch the trailer of An American Pickle here:
The film looks great, despite the silly story. Silliness has never stopped a piece of entertainment from being enjoyable (case in point: Thor: Ragnarok), and indeed this Brandon Trost directorial is appearing to embrace its zaniness.
An American Pickle starts streaming on August 6.
