The 'Good Boys' trailer goes Red Band

Even the stars of “Good Boys” aren’t allowed to watch the new Red Band trailer, as producer Seth Rogen explains in the below movie trailer, which instantly evokes a “Superbad” sensibility as a trio of young talent take on sixth grade hard.

After being invited to his first kissing party, 12-year-old Max (Jacob Tremblay) is panicking because he doesn’t know how to kiss. Eager for some pointers, Max and his best friends Thor (Brady Noon) and Lucas (Keith L. Williams) decide to use Max’s dad’s drone – which Max is forbidden to touch – to spy (they think) on a teenage couple making out next door.

But when things go ridiculously wrong, the drone is destroyed. Desperate to replace it before Max’s dad (Will Forte) gets home, the boys skip school and set off on an odyssey of epically bad decisions involving some accidentally stolen drugs, frat-house paintball, and running from both the cops and terrifying teenage girls (Molly Gordon and Midori Francis).

From Point Grey producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the writers of Superbad, Pineapple Express and Sausage Party, and James Weaver (“Neighbors”), Good Boys, from Universal Pictures and Good Universe, is written by the team of Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (“The Office,” “Bad Teacher”). Eisenberg also produces and Stupnitsky directs.

Look for “Good Boys” to hit the big screen August 16.
