Trailer for DETENTION Starring Josh Hutcherson and Dane Cook

     March 2, 2011


A trailer has gone online for Joseph Kahn’s bizarre-looking new film Detention.  While the trailer cracks a joke at the expense of Kahn’s previous film, Torque, it’s an odd mish-mash that recalls gooey high-school comedies, Scream, and The Breakfast Club.  I don’t know what to make of this movie and that’s exciting.  The film will be making its premiere at this year’s SXSW Film Festival and I’ll be interested to hear the response.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  Detention stars Josh Hutcherson, Dane Cook, Shanley Caswell, Spencer Locke, Aaron David Johnson, Walter Perez, Erica Shaffer, Parker Bagley, and Alison Woods.

Trailer via MTV.

Here’s the official synopsis for Detention:

Detention is a teen horror-comedy where the local students of Grizzly Lake must survive their final year of high school. Standing in their way is a slasher movie killer who has seemingly come to life. It becomes a race against time to stop the killer and save the world – if only they can get out of detention. The Detention cuts through prom. Most of them don’t have dates anyway.

    Dane Cook sucks monkey balls. Seriously… Lady Gaga? C’mon. The Heath thing was chuckle worthy though.
