The Full Trailer For Stoner Film The Beach Bum Has Dropped And It Looks Outrageous
| Last updated
There have been plenty of stoner films released over the years: Pineapple Express, Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle, Dazed and Confused, Friday and The Big Lebowski.
Each one has taken audiences on a hilarious, outrageous journey that could never happen in real life. But it looks like we're about to get a film that could beat all these classics.
The Beach Bum stars Matthew McConaughey in the titular role of 'Moondog' - the Beach Bum himself - who IMDB describes as a 'rebellious stoner' who 'lives life by his own rules'.
The trailer gives us a look at a man with enormous riches who pisses it all away on drugs, girls, partying and a very, very lavish lifestyle. Moondog is a poet who gets arrested and tries to churn out a poem to last through the ages. It also shows us beautiful cars, flying a plane while blazed and a parrot that's addiction to cocaine.
The epic movie also stars Snoop Dogg, Isla Fisher, Jonah Hill and Zac Efron. Who else would you want for a stoner flick?
The Beach Bum is the work of Harmony Korine, the man who wrote and directed the 2012 film Spring Breakers, a critically acclaimed flick about four college girls who descend into a world of violence and crime inhabited by an eccentric drug dealer.
And his latest hit looks like it might follow the same pattern of being pretty bonkers but with a deeper message hidden in there somewhere or woven in throughout - the trailer shows us strong characters but also gives us hints of strained and complex relationships between them.
While the teaser for the film gives us expectations that it will be epic, it seems as though the filming process was just as intense.
McConaughey was asked by Jimmy Kimmel what it was like working on The Beach Bum and what his favourite moment was.
The 49-year-old seemed to have quite an instant answer: Getting high with Snoop - or getting 'Snooped', as he called it, because he got tricked into getting stoned.
He explained that prop weed isn't like your usual stuff - for obvious reasons - and that it's usually an actual herb like oregano or something.
He said: "There's a scene where I'm going to Snoop because I've got writers block and Snoop has the magic weed.
"So I went to the prop man to make sure I have the prop weed.
"So it's a six minute scene where we pass back and forth and all of sudden at the end he goes 'Yo Moondog' - that's my character - 'that ain't prop weed, that's Snoop Weed'.
"And I was like 'oh you son of a a gun'."
He added: "The next nine hours were a lot of fun but I don't think we used one word in the English language."
The Beach Bum is due for release on 22 March 2019.
