Prepare to feel awkward and watch the cringiness when Eric Andre and Lil Rel Howery star in a new hidden camera prank comedy from Orion Pictures. The movie is called Bad Trip and will be released on October 25th. The last prank comedy that was released was Bad Grandpa, so I’m sure anything can top that one. It was funny but have a feeling Eric Andre will up the ante.
Here’s the press release on the movie:
Bad Trip follows two best friends on a cross-country road trip full of hilarious, inventive pranks, pulling its real-life audience into the mayhem. The film is directed by Kitao Sakurai (Adult Swim’s The Eric Andre Show) and produced by Andre, David Bernad (The Mule, NBC’s Superstore), Ruben Fleischer (Venom, Zombieland) and Tremaine.
“Eric and Rel’s hilarious performances combined with spectacular, groundbreaking pranks will make Bad Trip the defining prank movie for a new generation. We’re incredibly proud to debut the next in line to Borat and Bad Grandpa,” said Bernad, Tremaine and Fleischer in a joint statement.
Next on the Orion Pictures slate is Nicholas McCarthy’s supernatural horror thriller The Prodigy starring Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Taylor Schilling, Jackson Robert Scott, and Colm Feore, opening in theaters on February 8, 2019; and the much-anticipated contemporary reimagining of the iconic horror classic Child’s Play starring Aubrey Plaza, Brian Tyree Henry and Gabriel Bateman on June 21, 2019.
