Apple has posted the trailer for writer/director Lynn Shelton’s (My Effortless Brilliance) new indie comedy Humpday. Recipient of the “Someone to Watch Award” at the 2009 Independent Spirit Awards, Shelton mines the biggest ironies of the male ego in Humpday, a buddy movie gone wild.
It’s been a decade since Ben (Mark Duplass) and Andrew (Joshua Leonard) were the bad boys of their college campus. Ben has settled down and found a job, wife, and home. Andrew took the alternate route as a vagabond artist, skipping the globe from Chiapas to Cambodia. When Andrew shows up unannounced on Ben’s doorstep, they easily fall back into their old dynamic of macho one-upmanship.
Late into the night at a wild party, the two find themselves locked in a mutual dare: to enter an amateur porn contest together. But what kind of boundary-breaking, envelope pushing porn can two straight dudes make? After the booze and “big talk” run out, only one idea remains—they will have sex together…on camera. It’s not gay; it’s beyond gay. It’s not porn; it’s art. But how exactly will it work? And more importantly, who will tell Anna (Alycia Delmore), Ben’s wife?
Humpday opens in theaters on July 10, 2009.
