The first trailer has dropped for the upcoming Amazon Prime exclusive release, Get Duked!. In the new film, three teens in the Scottish equivalent of an outward bound program for at-risk youth wandering the highlands until a group of boomers, led by Eddie Izzard, decide to hunt them for sport.
The first trailer sets up a solid comedy about losers who are in over their head and have to find out what they are really capable of when their lives are on the line. It looks like a lot of fun and it drops on Prime Video August 28.
Dean, Duncan and DJ Beatroot are teenage pals from Glasgow who embark on the character-building camping trip — based on a real-life program — known as the Duke of Edinburgh Award, where foraging, teamwork and orienteering are the order of the day. Eager to cut loose and smoke weed in the Scottish Highlands, the trio finds themselves paired with straight-laced Ian, a fellow camper determined to play by the rules. After veering off-path into remote farmland that’s worlds away from their urban comfort zone, the boys find themselves hunted down by a shadowy force hell-bent on extinguishing their futures. From writer-director Ninian Doff — making his feature debut after a slew of award-winning music videos and short films for artists including Run the Jewels, Miike Snow, Migos, and Mykki Blanco — comes an anarchic satire of generational politics, hip-hop loving farmers and hallucinogenic rabbit droppings that pits the youth of tomorrow against the status quo of yesterday. Get Duked! stars Eddie Izzard, Kate Dickey, Georgie Glen, James Cosmo and a breakout young cast featuring Samuel Bottomley, Viraj Juneja, Rian Gordon, and Lewis Gribben. Only on Prime Video August 28.
