Prime Video has released an official redband trailer for Get Duked!, an upcoming dark comedy set in Scotland.
This looks quite enjoyable actually. I had my suspicions (I’m not one for stoner comedies), but I’m digging the horror/murder angle that has been thrown in. Plus I see actor Jonathan Aris is part of the cast and I enjoyed his character in Sherlock and think he should be in more stuff. So I’ll probably give this a watch, but mostly because it will be on Prime Video.
The rest of the cast includes Samuel Bottomley, Rian Gordon, Lewis Gribben, Viraj Juneja, Kate Dickie, Kevin Guthrie, Georgia Glen, Alice Lowe, Brian Pettifer, James Cosmo and Eddie Izzard.
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! begins streaming August 28, 2020 on Prime Video.
