Eastbound and Down is a favorite around Everything Action HQ and now Danny McBride is starring in Your Highness, an R rated medieval fantasy/comedy from David Gordon Green, director of Pineapple Express. McBride plays Thadeous, a lazy prince who’s braver/more successful brother Fabious (James Franco) is marrying a beautiful princess (Zooey Deschanel) but she’s kidnapped by an evil wizard on their wedding day so the two brothers must set out to rescue her. They get help from a warrior princess played by Natalie Portman and have to deal with all sorts of mythological creatures. The action seems pretty good and the jokes are pretty great as well so I’m excited. If you wished that The Princess Bride had more pot and sex jokes then you should definitely check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
