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.
The film is out in cinema’s August 7th.
