Director Scot Armstrong’s action comedy Search Party will finally be making its way into theaters this May. To celebrate that fact, a new red-band trailer and poster have emerged. That’s a good thing, too, since this insane-looking picture features the comedic talents of Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, and Adam Pally in the leads. Couple that fact with a supporting cast that includes Alison Brie, Krysten Ritter, Jason Mantzoukas, J.B. Smoove, and Shannon Woodward, and this is one comedy that should find some traction.
If you’ve been waiting for a follow-up to The Hangover trilogy, it looks like Search Party might be right up your alley. Or if you’re a fan of the folks on HBO’s Silicon Valley, this should be one film you keep an eye on over the next month or so. Look for the action comedy in theaters, and on VOD and digital HD starting May 13, 2016.
Check out the new red-band trailer for Search Party below:
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
Wedding bells threaten to break up three best friends’ long-running bromance, but they aren’t going down without a fight in Search Party, the directing debut of screenwriter Scot Armstrong (The Hangover Part II, Old School).
Convinced that his buddy Nardo (Thomas Middleditch) is making the mistake of a lifetime by marrying Tracy (Shannon Woodward), Jason (T.J. Miller) puts a dramatic end to their wedding. When the furious bride decides to take her Baja honeymoon solo, Nardo follows her-where the lovesick groom is carjacked and left stranded, naked and penniless in a remote part of the Mexican desert. Helpless, Nardo sends out an SOS to Jason and their pal Evan (Adam Pally), an up-and-coming ad exec slated for an important business meeting the next morning. During their ridiculous attempt to rescue Nardo, the trio embarks on a series of increasingly outrageous misadventures involving con artists, drug smugglers and even the Federales in this wild and wacky action comedy.
