The first trailer for The Beach Bum has arrived, and it feels like director Harmony Korine found the dial at the back of Matthew McConaughey‘s beautiful skull and cranked it up to 420.
McConaughey stars as Moondog, the titular beach bum who also happens to be some kind of prodigious literary talent. The clip shows him ambling through life before a sudden legal mishap, evoking The Big Lebowski channeled through Korine’s other beachside fever dream, Spring Breakers.
Keep an eye out for Snoop Dogg, Isla Fisher, Martin Lawrence, Zac Efron, Jimmy goddamn Buffett, and Jonah Hill sporting a beguiling Cajun accent. It’s a lot, but come on, you don’t go into a Korine film expecting subdued palettes and level-headed leading roles.
