Magnolia Pictures has just released the first trailer for David Gordon Green’s upcoming Prince Avalanche, which stars Paul Rudd, as the quiet and meditative Alvin, and Emile Hirsch, and the strange and perhaps mentally unstable, Lance. The two spend a summer together repainting highway traffic lines, and bond with each other in the great outdoors.

The trailer definitely gives us a sense of how quirky this movie is likely to be, and the tone kind of reminds me of a Wes Anderson film. But don’t take my word for it; take a look at the trailer for yourself! Prince Avalanche is coming out in theaters and VOD on August 9th.

A more detailed description of the movie:

An odd couple of sorts, meditative and stern Alvin and his girlfriend’s brother, Lance, dopey and insecure, leave the city behind to spend the summer in solitude repainting traffic lines down the center of a country highway ravaged by wildfire. As they sink into their job in the remarkable landscape, they learn more than they want to about each other and their own limitations. An unlikely friendship develops through humor and nasty exchanges, leading to surprising affection. Adapted from Icelandic film Either Way, Prince Avalanche is driven by wonderful performances by Paul Rudd, Emile Hirsch, and Lance LeGault. Writer/director David Gordon Green gets back to his independent roots with this character study, which shows his knack for realistically capturing people and finding meaning in their lives and dreams. With a soundtrack by Explosions in the Sky and David Wingo and gorgeous cinematography by Tim Orr, Prince Avalanche bucks convention by exploring male bonding in a refreshingly genuine way.
