American Vandal Season 2 Trailer

Okay I have to be honest here I never did watch the first season of American Vandal but I did giggle from this trailer. So I will have to go back and watch Season 1 before checking out Season 2. Yeah, poop is funny.

“Having left its red spray-painted mark on pop culture with a breakout freshman season, American Vandal returns with an explosive new case, a (mostly) new cast and solid new conspiracy theories. Season 2 of the Emmy-nominated and Peabody Award-winning true-crime satire follows documentarians Peter Maldonado and Sam Ecklund as they bring their investigative skills to an elite Catholic school where someone has been taking poop-related pranks to new heights. From co-creators Tony Yacenda and Dan Perrault, and showrunner Dan Lagana, American Vandal’s addictive second season will have everyone speculating: Who is the Turd Burglar?”

Source: Netflix Press Release

American Vandal Season 2 stars Tyler Alvarez (Peter), Griffin Gluck (Sam), Travis Tope (Kevin), Taylor Dearden (Chloe), Melvin Gregg (DeMarcus) and DeRon Horton (Lou). The series is produced for Netflix by CBS Television Studios, Funny Or Die and 3Arts. Executive producers include Tony Yacenda, Daniel Perrault and Dan Lagana, Joe Farrell for Funny Or Die, and Ari Lubet, Josh Lieberman and Michael Rotenberg for 3Arts.

The Trailer Park: The Oath Teaser Trailer

Coming from Topic Studios and Roadside Attractions, The Oath. Written and directed by Ike Barinoltz.

“A controversial White House policy turns family member against family member in THE OATH, a savagely funny dark comedy about surviving life and Thanksgiving in the age of political tribalism. When Chris (Ike Barinholtz), a high-strung 24-hour progressive news junkie, and his more levelheaded wife Kai (Tiffany Haddish) learn that citizens are being asked to sign a loyalty oath to the President, their reaction is disbelief, followed by idealistic refusal. But as the Thanksgiving deadline to sign approaches, the combination of sparring relatives, Chris’s own agitation and the unexpected arrival of two government agents (John Cho and Billy Magnussen) sends an already tense holiday dinner gathering completely off the rails. As timely as it is outrageous, THE OATH is a gleefully wicked reinvention of the traditional holiday comedy for our divisive political
times.”
The idea for the film came to Ike Barinholtz a couple of weeks after the election of Donald Trump. “Right after Trump won, I had Thanksgiving at my house,” say Barinholtz. “And after dinner, my family and I got into an argument about the election. The strange thing was that we were all pretty much aligned politically. So I thought if we’ve getting this angry at each other, I can only imagine what’s happening to other people around the country.”
The Oath comes to theaters October 12, 2018
