‘Arizona’ Trailer: Danny McBride wants revenge on his realtors


2018 is shaping up to be a pretty great year for Danny McBride. I mean, dude got to write a Halloween sequel with his bud David Gordon Green, he appeared in Jody Hill’s excellent Netflix film The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter, and now he’s taking on the 2009 housing crisis in Jonathan Watson’s Arizona, which premiered at Sundance earlier this year. The good folks at RLJE Entertainment dropped a trailer for the film today over at Collider, and we’ve got it here as well.

Take a look:


We’re always down for some McBride, given that the man is Kenny Powers through and through, and though we missed this back in Park City, we’re glad that we won’t have to wait too much longer to see it. Real talk, though: We’re kind of interested to see how filmmakers are going to treat that period in history with the benefit of hindsight, and it’s pretty cool to see genre filmmakers attempting to grapple with it.

Here’s a synopsis:

“Cassie (Rosemarie DeWitt, ‘La La Land’) is a real estate agent and single mom struggling to keep it all together during the housing crisis of 2009. Her problems go from bad to worse when disgruntled client Sonny (Danny McBride, ‘Pineapple Express’) violently confronts Cassie’s boss and then kidnaps Cassie – making one outrageously bad, and bloody, decision after another. Things completely spiral out of control in this explosive action comedy, also starring Luke Wilson (‘Idiocracy’), Kaitlin Olson (‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’), David Alan Grier (‘The Carmichael Show’) and Elizabeth Gillies (‘Dynasty’).”


Arizona hits theaters and VOD on August 24.
