Warner Bros. has dropped a new trailer for ‘An American Pickle’ starring Seth Rogen ahead of its release this Friday.

Seth Rogen plays Herschel Greenbaum, a struggling labourer who immigrates to America in 1919 with dreams of building a better life for his beloved family. One day, while working at his factory job, he falls into a vat of pickles and is brined for 100 years. The brine preserves him perfectly and when he emerges in present-day Brooklyn, he finds that he hasn’t aged a day. But when he seeks out his family, he is troubled to learn that his only surviving relative is his great-grandson Ben Greenbaum (also played by Seth Rogen), a mild-mannered computer coder whom Herschel can’t even begin to understand.

Directed by Brandon Trost from a script by Simon Rich, the film is produced by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver. Simon Rich executive produced alongside Point Grey’s Alex McAtee and Ted Gidlow.
