Trailer for YOUR HIGHNESS proves it may be the fantasy/action/comedy that the world has been waiting for
After absolutely stealing the show at this year’s New York Comic-Con, it’s the public’s turn to finally lay eyes on the pure insanity that is the first, extended redband trailer for David Gordon Green’s upcoming film YOUR HIGHNESS.
And oh, how it still rocks.
The film stars Danny McBride, Natalie Portman, Justin Theroux, and James Franco, and follows two brothers who must go on a quest to save a kidnapped princess before an evil wizard can impregnate her with dragon sperm, and thus giving birth to a dragon that will rule the kingdom for eternity. No, I’m not kidding.
The trailer is a showstopper. From the amazing mixture of CG and in camera effects, not only is the trailer absolutely hilarious, but it also happens to hint at some really great performances, particularly Theroux (who says his inspiration was Gary Oldman, which is more and more obvious every time you watch this), and some really thrilling action. However, I have a feeling that this is going to ultimately become a massively quoted blockbuster comedy that will hopefully lead to everyone involved going on to bigger and better things.
Seriously, while the jokes may play the focus of this, everything from the action to the cinematography is top notch. As I said during NYCC, this is truly next level action/comedy filmmaking. I can’t wait for this damn thing.
