Project X Trailer Project X Trailer & Poster: Superbad On Crack

Hangover director Todd Phillips had an ambitious idea for a film: gather up a group of unknown young actors and stage the most wild, crazy, out-of-control party that has ever been put to film – all for the sake of a movie known only as Project X.

Judging by the mayhem depicted in the Project X trailer we now have to share, Phillips and Co. have accomplished exactly what they set out to do. Party on.

Directed by newcomer Nima Nourizadeh and co-scripted by Scott Pilgrim/21 Jump Street writer Michael Bacall and relative unknown Matt Drake, Project X is bringing some fresh creative talent behind the camera to match its cast of fresh faces. The story (as it is) revolves around high school senior Thomas (Thomas Mann) and his two friends J.B. (Jonathan Daniel Brown) and Costa (Oliver Cooper), as they exploit Thomas’ parent-free home in Pasadena to throw the mother of all birthday parties that will hopefully result in their names being scribed in the hallowed pages of high school legend. But as with any rolling snow ball, the boys’ party gets too big, and  starts speeding downhill too fast for them control.

See what kind of awesome chaos ensues in the Project X trailer:

Sporting taglines like “Best Part Movie Ever!” or “Parents’ Worst Nightmare” or the PR-approved slogan “The Event That Will Turn Losers Into Legends,” Project X is positioning itself to become THE party movie of a new generation. I’m loath to admit it, but in my high school years the big party movie was Can’t Hardly Wait;  it seems (upon initial glance) that this generation is getting the better end of the deal.

As far as Project X‘s qualifications as a good movie? Well, the premise is pretty basic, there isn’t going to be a whole lot of acting talent to speak of, and the story is one we’ve seen over and over agin on film. It pretty much boils down to whether or not the screenwriters and director have concocted a series of entertaining situations like those we saw in the trailer (roof jumps, flamethrowers, taser-based confrontations with neighbors). So far, it looks as though they have – and the R-Rating promises that there is more bad behavior yet to be seen.

Project X will be in theaters on March 2, 2012.

  7. these kids seemingly represent the same ethnic/cultural trope-pool as 95% of most hollywod bro-medys. same formula, same “edgy®” dialogue and situations, as all of last years’ and the year before and the year before that, all the exact same schtick, only now, the cast is 10 years younger. i guess we’re all supposed to go “yay!! vive la difference!!”
