Amazon Studios revealed the official red-band trailer yesterday for their upcoming satirical film, GET DUKED!. Make sure you check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!
Dean, Duncan, and DJ Beatroot are teenage pals from Glasgow who embark on the character-building camping trip — based on a real-life program — known as the Duke of Edinburgh Award, where foraging, teamwork and orienteering are the order of the day. Eager to cut loose and smoke weed in the Scottish Highlands, the trio finds themselves paired with straight-laced Ian, a fellow camper determined to play by the rules. After veering off-path into remote farmland that’s worlds away from their urban comfort zone, the boys find themselves hunted down by a shadowy force hell-bent on extinguishing their futures.
From writer-director Ninian Doff — making his feature debut after a slew of award-winning music videos and short films for artists including Run the Jewels, Miike Snow, Migos, and Mykki Blanco — comes an anarchic satire of generational politics, hip-hop loving farmers and hallucinogenic rabbit droppings that pits the youth of tomorrow against the status quo of yesterday.
GET DUKED! stars Eddie Izzard (“Hannibal”, Abominable), Kate Dickie (The Witch, “Game of Thrones”), Georgie Glen (“Damned”, Shakespeare in Love), James Cosmo (“Game of Thrones”, Highlander), and a breakout young cast featuring Samuel Bottomley (“Ladhood”, The Last Right), Viraj Juneja (Boyz in the Wood, “Vera”), Rian Gordon (Boyz in the Wood, Come Out of the Woods, and Lewis Gribben (T2 Trainspotting, “Deadwater Fell”).
The film is directed and written by Ninian Doff. The film is produced by Matthew Plouffe, Tobey Maguire, Brian Coffey, and Laura Tunstall.
It is executive produced by Thomas Benski, Davud Karbassioun, Marisa Clifford, Tim Headington, Lia Buman, Richard Weinberg, and Eddie Izzard.
