Trailer for Jack Black and James Marsden’s THE D TRAIN
Jack Black and James Marsden’s upcoming comedy The D Train was actually one of the more entertaining movies that I saw at Sundance this year. The first trailer has been released for the film, which tells the story of a loser named Dan Landsman (Black), who thinks he can be accepted by the “cool” club if he can convince the most popular guy from high school to come to their high school class reunion. In the process of accomplishing this feat, comedic and surprising insanity ensues.
All his life, Dan Landsman (Jack Black) has never been the cool guy. That’s about to change – if he can convince Oliver Lawless (Marsden), the most popular guy from his high school who’s now the face of a national Banana Boat ad campaign, to show up with him to their class reunion. A man on a mission, Dan travels from Pittsburgh to LA and spins a web of lies to recruit Lawless. But he gets more than he bargains for as the unpredictable Lawless proceeds to take over his home, career, and entire life. Showcasing Jack Black and James Marden’s most outrageous performances to date, THE D TRAIN serves up the question: how far would you go to be popular? Co-starring Kathryn Hahn and Jeffrey Tambor.
It was really a great dark comedy that I think many of you would enjoy. You can read our full review for it here. The movie is set to be released on May 8th, 2015
