The Good Boys aren’t tall enough for their movie in first poster
Universal has debuted the first poster for the upcoming comedy Good Boys, starring The Predator‘s Jacob Tremblay and poking fun at the protagonists’ young age and the film’s mature content. Check out the full poster in the gallery below!
The producers of Sausage Party, Superbad, and Blockers bring their signature R-rated twist to the classic coming-of-age story in Good Boys. The comedy stars Tremblay (Wonder, Room) as the mischievous leader of a group of 12-year-old boys whose day of skipped school will become an all-day odyssey of awesomely bad decisions, fraught with comedic peril.
The film’s official synopsis reads as follows:
“Just how bad can one day get? The creative minds behind Superbad, Pineapple Express and Sausage Party take on sixth grade hard in the outrageous comedy, Good Boys.
After being invited to his first kissing party, 12-year-old Max (Room’s Tremblay) is panicking because he doesn’t know how to kiss. Eager for some pointers, Max and his best friends Thor (Brady Noon, HBO’s Boardwalk Empire) and Lucas (Keith L. Williams, Fox’s The Last Man On Earth) 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, The Last Man on Earth) 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 (Life of the Party’s Molly Gordon and Ocean’s Eight’s Midori Francis).”
From Point Grey producers Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver, Good Boys is written and directed by Lee Eisenberg & Gene Stupnitsky (The Office, Bad Teacher), who make their feature-film directorial debut with the project. Good Universe’s Nathan Kahane (Juno, Blockers) will executive produce with Josh Fagen and Brady Fujikawa.
Good Boys will make its debut at the South by Southwest film festival on March 11 and is slated to hit theaters wide on August 16.
