Your Highness Trailer

I have to admit, I’m a sucker for eighties fantasy. Classics like Willow and Labyrinth were among the favourites of my childhood (although, I must confess, I have never actually seen all of Legend – Tim Curry gave me nightmares). So I’m actually really looking forward to Your Highness, which looks to be a sort of (vaguely) affectionate spoof of all those classic campy fantasy movies. Seriously, check out the appearance from a very Jim-Hensen-esque puppet at the end of the trailer. It’s written and starring Danny McBride, who you’ll probably be familiar with from great roles in some of the better comedies of the last few years (like Pineapple Express with co-star James Franco and Tropic Thunder). The movie filmed in Northern Ireland, and recently had students from around the US competing to host the world premiere, so it’s one to watch. By the way, check out that supporting cast – Damian Lewis, Charles Dance, Toby Jones and Justin Theroux (alongside leads McBride and Franco, Natalie Portman and Zooey Dreschanel).

  1. I believe this to have potential, but I hope Danny McBride does something different than his normal shtick.

    Hey, would you mind adding my movie blog to your blogs well worth your time?

  2. I prefer the red band trailer released yesterday which should be more appropriately renamed to “Natalie Portman’s butt trailer”

  3. Caught this one before “Paul” and it looks hysterical. I was a big fan of “Pineapple Express” and Green will definitely get my money come release.

  4. Oh god, yes, I’m looking forward to this. Love McBride and I love Franco, and I think they make a great team-up with Green, but I think what’s really got me here is the material and the genre. Vulgar and crude stoner fantasy comedy? Sounds great. The “booby trap” line from the most recent red band trailer slew me, but I think I like Theroux’s introduction in the first one the most.

    Can’t wait for this to hit.

  5. This movie looks hilarious! Check out the 2nd Red Band Trailer! http://bit.ly/hl3BxW

  6. This looks quite decent – like a Princess Bride for our ADD generation. I hope McBride can can and re-use some of his Kenny Powers powers for this one. The 2nd uk trailer in the cinemas has shown a lot of the main gags though…
