The first trailer has been released for Jack Black's upcoming Netflix film The Polka King. I had a chance to see this film at Sundance earlier this year and it was a wildly entertaining dark comedy! Jack Black also delivers one of the best performances of his career.
The movie is actually based on a true story that is just so insane! People can't make this shit up. Black plays a character named Jan Lewan, the beloved "Polka King" who conned an entire town with a Ponzi scheme. I loved this film and I think a lot of you will enjoy the hell out of it! Here's the synopsis:
In The Polka King, Jack Black stars as Jan Lewan, a Polish immigrant who became the “King of Pennsylvania Polka.” A believer in the American Dream, Jan worked hard and dreamed bigger, but with big dreams come big mistakes. Based on a true story, the film, co-written and directed by Maya Forbes and Wally Wolodarsky, mixes comedy and tragedy showing the world’s only known Polka Ponzi scheme.
The Polka King has a fantastic supporting cast that also includes Jenny Slate, Jason Schwartzman, Jacki Weaver, J.B. Smoove and Willie Garson. The movie will be released on Netflix on January 12, 2018. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think!
