The first trailer has dropped for Dirty Grandpa, an upcoming comedy starring Zac Efron and Robert De Niro.
Efron plays the uptight guy this time around, turning in a different role to the party guy he gave us in last year’s Neighbors. His character here is tricked by his perverted grandfather (De Niro) into hitting up Florida for Spring Break. One can only hope that hilarity ensues.
The first trailer off the lot is a somewhat bland preview of a generic-looking comedy, even if De Niro appears to be having a great time as a man throwing decency to the wind. More trailers are certainly on the way – hopefully of the red band variety, so we’ll keep an eye on this one. Be sure to scroll past the trailer to check out the film’s great poster, which does an amusing little job of ripping off The Graduate.
Dirty Grandpa, also starring Aubrey Plaza, Julianne Hough, Zoey Deutch, and Dermot Mulroney, will be released in the U.S. on January 22.
Dirty Grandpa logline:
