HBO Max has its first exclusive movie coming next month and it’s starring a preserved and present day Seth Rogen and, yes, pickles.
I’m a fan of Rogen’s comedies, so this one could be good, bad, or somewhere in that “forget about it after watching” between. I’m fairly confident during the movie it will make me laugh at least once or twice.
Directed by Brandon Trost (“This is the End,” “Neighbors,” “The Interview”) and based on Simon Rich’s (“Man Seeking Woman,” “Miracle Workers”) 2013 New Yorker novella, “An American Pickle” — HBO Max’s first original film — stars Rogen as both Herschel Greenbaum, a struggling laborer who immigrates to America in 1920, and Ben Greenbaum, Herschel’s mild-mannered computer programmer grandson.‘An American Pickle’ Trailer: 2 Seth Rogens Strive For American Dream | IndieWire
The official trailer recently dropped:
Pickle factory worker, preserved in pickle relatives, computer programmers, yes … it’s got the ingredients for something really stupid or funny, we’ll soon find out which. Are you looking forward to this one? I am.
An American Pickle will be available for streaming on HBO Max exclusively on August 6, 2020.
