We’ve talked about Humpday a couple of times already — a great mumblecore flick starring Mark Duplass and Joshua Leonard, from the Queen of mumblecore, Lynn Shelton. (I don’t know why they call it mumblecore — I mean, I understand the origin, but really, it’s kind of a stupid label, and only serves to alienate people who think that mumblecore sounds too hipster for them. But it makes people like me feel good because we get to impress you with our knowledge of hipster terminology, when in fact we’re just tools with access to Wikipedia, all of which is to say: Mumblecore films are just really low budget movies about relationships.). Humpday has a bizarre premise that you won’t believe will work, but in the context of the movie, it does. It works really well. You still won’t believe me, but whatever. I will lord my knowledge of mumblecore over you like the douchester I am.
So, the premise: Two incredibly straight men decide, more or less on a hyper-masculine triple-dog dare, to make a gay porn together because it’s the sort of thing that straight men don’t do.
Seriously. It’s a good movie. And there’s a brand new trailer out. I’d love to embed it here, but the studio thinks it’s a good idea to limit the audience for their marketing by giving Apple the exclusive rights to the trailer. So head on over to Apple (their trailers are much better in quality, anyway) and check out the trailer and come back and tell me how full of shit I am.
