An upcoming British film that’s definitely worth putting on your radar, here’s the red band (and also the more family friendly) trailer for Get Duked.
A potent mix of black comedy and horror, Get Duked is a film that we think is still under a review embargo, so we’re not allowed to tell you yet just how good it is. It’s from writer and director Ninian Doff, and has been picked up by Amazon for release on its Prime Video platform.
It was originally bubbling around under the name Boyz In The Wood, before a late change of title was decided upon. It’s now called Get Duked, but still stars Samuel Bottomley, Rian Gordon, Lewis Gribben, Viraj Juneja, Kate Dickie, Alice Lowe, James Cosmo and Eddie Izzard.
The film has a confirmed release date on the Amazon service now of August 28th, and both a polite and a red band trailer for the movie have been released. We figured we’d let you decide how impressionable you are.
Here’s the red band promo…
And here’s the nice and polite version…
The synopsis reads as follows…
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.
More on the film as we hear it. Don’t tell anyone we told you, but it’s very much worth adding to your to-watch list…
