Act your age: teens put the sheen on films about growing up

Like Eighth Grade, Boyhood and the new comedy Good Boys, the most authentic coming-of-age movies feature casts still in the throes of adolescence

Film has a sometimes troubling relationship with authenticity. However, in coming-of-age films, the authenticity of having child actors in the roles gives the films a certain flair that makes them shine. One notable example is the forthcoming Good Boys, a raucous coming-of-age film for tweenage boys. It features three lead actors who are only a few years older than the 12-year-olds they are playing. There is a touching innocence that marks their performance and produces memorable scenes, such as mistaking their parents’ sex toys for nunchucks and indoor swings. In films about the experience of growing up, there is a certain flavour that can be mimicked but not recreated by older actors.

Eighth Grade is another film to be applauded for its awkwardly sweet look at what

Good Boys: Jacob Tremblay's New Movie Is So Nsfw, He Can’t Even Watch the Trailer

Good Boys: Jacob Tremblay's New Movie Is So Nsfw, He Can’t Even Watch the Trailer
What is it like to watch Jacob Tremblay, the adorable little boy who captured all of our hearts in Room, cursing out classmates and spying on his neighbors with a drone? Uh, a little weird, I gotta be honest. But it's also . . . kind of perfect?

In the Nsfw trailer for Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen's Good Boys, Tremblay stars as 12-year-old Max, who is about to attend his first "kissing party." Freaking out since he doesn't know how, he enlists the help of his best friends Thor (Brady Noon) and Lucas (Keith L. Williams). Together, the three sixth-grade "social piranhas" use a high-tech drone that belongs to Max's dad (Will Forte) to spy on a teenage couple (Molly Gordon and Midori Francis) making out next door. Obviously, things don't go according to plan, and the drone is destroyed.

How will Max, Thor, and Lucas replace the drone before Max's dad gets home?

Good Boys Trailer: Superbad Middle Schoolers Go on a Foul-Mouthed Adventure

Good Boys Trailer: Superbad Middle Schoolers Go on a Foul-Mouthed Adventure
We have a brand new trailer for Good Boys. This comedy is produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the duo responsible for such R-rated comedies as Superbad and Sausage Party, amongst others. This time around, they've tapped the young Jacob Tremblay (Room), as well as a couple of other talented young up-and-comers, to get delightfully inappropriate in a new coming-of-age comedy that looks like it has all of the ingredients to become a modern classic. It's also straight-up filthy, but luckily, this new green band trailer is (mostly) safe for work.

The trailer showcases a trio of adolescent boys who are approaching a very important turning point in their lives. They've been invited to a party, at which there will be kissing. As we see, the three of them, rather amusingly, are pretty clueless about the opposite sex. Their journey to learn how to kiss gets them into all sorts of wildly inappropriate hijinks,

New Trailer For Good Boys, The Vulgar Tween Comedy From Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg

We’ve got a new trailer to share with you for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s latest comedy Good Boys. The film is going to be another one of those vulgar comedies that they like to make, except this one deals with three young tween boys about to enter middle school.

The movie stars Jacob Tremblay (Room) who is on a mission to learn how to kiss before they attend a party that they were invited too. Their journey ends up spiraling into “an odyssey of epically bad decisions.” For the most part I’ve enjoyed the films that Rogen and Goldberg have produced, if you do as well, then this is a movie that you might enjoy watching.

The movie did screen at SXSW and apparently audiences loved it. Here’s the movie’s synopsis:

Good Boys is bringing the raunch comedy down to Jacob Tremblay, Brady Noon, and Keith L. Williams‘ level…which is about 4 and a half feet? But size isn’t an indication of humor, because the pint-sized middle schoolers of the SXSW hit have plenty of outrageously inappropriate jokes to share in the official new Good Boys trailer.

Universal has released a second trailer for the comedy Good Boys, the feature directorial debut of writer / producer Gene Stupnitsky (screenwriter on Year One and Bad Teacher).

Just how bad can one day get? You'll have to head to theaters in August to find out. Starring Jacob Tremblay, Brady Noon, and Keith L.

‘Good Boys’ Trailer: 6th Graders Behave Badly In Seth Rogen/Evan Goldberg Coming-Of-Age Tween Comedy

Kids saying bad words is always funny. It’s just one of those things that will never change, no matter what. And in the new film, “Good Boys,” that theory is put to the test, as the comedy features no shortage of children saying and doing horribly inappropriate things.

As seen in the new trailer for the film, “Good Boys” follows the hijinks of three 6th grade boys, as they prepare for their first “kissing party.” If you’ve ever seen a coming-of-age comedy film, then the premise sounds very familiar, as they tend to revolve around kids trying to finally be “cool” and attend some major party.

Jacob Tremblay to voice The Kid in sci-fi reimagining of Chaplin classic

Deadline is reporting that Jacob Tremblay is set to voice the title character in The Kid: An Animated Adventure, a sci-fi reimagining of the 1921 Charlie Chaplin classic.

The film takes place in a futuristic New York City which has been split into two distinct regions following a flooding. Tremblay’s Kid lives with his mother in Uptown, described as “a boring, artless place of overprotective safety”, but after he runs away he finds himself in the mysterious and dangerous Downtown.

Donna Langley, Chairman of Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, was all smiles at her studio’s CinemaCon presentation. She’s coming off an almost $5-billion year worldwide, Oscar wins for “Green Book” ($300 million worldwide) and “BlacKkKlansman,” and the explosive surprise launch of Jordan Peele’s “Us,” which scored the highest-grossing original horror opening ever, and has already collected $180 million in just two weeks.

“Audiences will show up to original movies from brilliant filmmakers as well as franchises,” Langley told the crowd before showing them a promo reel full of testimonials from the likes of Universal players Emma Thompson, Antonio Banderas, Judi Dench, Jordan Peele, Idris Elba, Seth Rogen, Jason Blum, and Tiffany Haddish.

Langley can tap a robust arsenal of product across several labels, including $6-billion animation player Illumination as well as acquisition DreamWorks Animation, horror factory Blumhouse, specialized players Working Title and Focus Features, and of course Steven Spielberg’s Amblin.
