The ‘Hesher’ Trailer Burns When You Urinate

Single tear at the dinner table. Flaming front flip into the pool. Donuts in the parking lot. Walking away from an explosion without looking back.

A lot of people have already had the chance to see Hesher, but I haven’t, and just from the trailer, it looks like a version of Garden State that grew a pair, set fire to The Shins’ “Chutes too Narrow,” and learned to blast Metallica while stripping down to its tightie-whities.

More words would only sully it. Check out the trailer for yourself:

There’s nothing wrong with a little “Battery” in the afternoon. If you needed to play the trailer twice because you were too busy headbanging the first time through, that’s perfectly understandable.

I have no idea whether the film will be a hardcore version of Garden State, but the coming of age sentiment seems to be there, Hesher seems like a Tyler Durden-esque figure, and there’s even nerdy Natalie Portman to help the comparison along.

Spencer Susser is a talented director (who we’ve featured on our Short Film of the Day spot), and this looks like a movie that grabs you by the nether regions and the heart strings all at the same time.

What say you?
