Matthew McConaughey plays an adventurous stoner in the upcoming Harmony Korine comedy film The Beach Bum.
The first teaser trailer for The Beach Bum didn’t reveal much by way of the film’s plot, other than setting the expectation for some stoner shenanigans.
The full trailer below offers more of the same, as we see McConaughey’s character Moondog essentially just getting up to mischief.
Things do appear to get serious for him when he faces court for an unknown crime and is asked to sort his life out.
Director Harmony Korine is known to mix comedy and dark, even disturbing elements in his film with a grounded tone like we saw in his 2012 film Spring Breakers, and The Beach Bum looks to follow suit.
The trailer for the film was pretty funny, so we can expect a fair amount of humour in it to go along with its dramatic undertones.
The film features an all-star cast that also includes Snoop Dogg, Isla Fisher, Zac Efron, Jimmy Buffett, Martin Lawrence and Jonah Hill.
It’s been seven years between movies for Korine, so fans of the director will be eagerly awaiting this one.
It’s due for release across theatres on 22 March 2019.
Check out the new trailer and poster below.
