Patton Oswalt Kidnaps Some Kids In First Red Band Trailer For Nature Calls
Before Patrice O'Neal unexpectedly passed away last November due to complications from a stroke, he had one unreleased film left on his resume. While he was largely known for his stand-up and television work, he had been hired to play a character named Mr. Caldwell in the Todd Rohal comedy Nature Calls. Also starring Patton Oswalt, Johnny Knoxville, Rob Riggle, Darrell Hammond, and Maura Tierney, the scouting comedy premiered at this year's SXSW Film Festival and now is making its way to theaters and VOD courtesy of Magnet Releasing. And in anticipation of its release the first trailer has arrived online - and, naturally, it's a red band one.
The preview first came online via Yahoo! and you can watch it below.
A send up of The Boy Scouts of America, the film stars Oswalt as Randy, a boy scout trooper leader who is disgusted with the way that kids these days don't like to go out into the woods, make campfires or set up camps. Conversely, his brother Kirk (Knoxville) is a dad who doesn't care if his kids want to go outdoors. With Randy unable to take it anymore, he forms a plan to take all of the children at Kirk's son's sleepover and take them for a camping trip in the woods. This, of course, leads Kirk to gather his friends and go hunt his brother down. Rohal last wrote and directed the religious comedy The Catechism Cataclysm, which came out last year and starred Eastbound & Down's Steve Little. Nature Calls will be available on demand starting on October 4th and will be released in theaters on November 9th.
