In just a few short weeks, HBO’s critically-acclaimed comedy series Silicon Valley will return for Season 3, but fans will also get to see two of the show’s leading men on the big screen this summer. Focus Features has debuted a new red band trailer for the outrageous comedy Search Party, arriving in theaters, Digital HD and VOD on May 13. Silicon Valley stars Thomas Middleditch and T.J. Miller reunite for this comedy, starring alongside Adam Pally, which shows that you should think twice before visiting Mexico.
Wedding bells threaten to break up three best friends’ long-running bromance, but they aren’t going down without a fight in Search Party, the directing debut of screenwriter Scot Armstrong (The Hangover Part II, Old School). Convinced that his buddy Nardo (Thomas Middleditch) is making the mistake of a lifetime by marrying Tracy (Shannon Woodward), Jason (T.J. Miller) puts a dramatic end to their wedding. When the furious bride decides to take her Baja honeymoon solo, Nardo follows her-where the lovesick groom is carjacked and left stranded, naked and penniless in a remote part of the Mexican desert.
Helpless, Nardo sends out an SOS to Jason and their pal Evan (Adam Pally), an up-and-coming ad exec slated for an important business meeting the next morning. During their ridiculous attempt to rescue Nardo, the trio embarks on a series of increasingly outrageous misadventures involving con artists, drug smugglers and even the Federales in this wild and wacky action comedy. The talented supporting cast is rounded out by Alison Brie, Krysten Ritter, Jason Mantzoukas, Lance Reddick, J.B. Smoove, Rosa Salazar, Horatio Sanz, Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci.
Scot Armstrong directs from a script he co-wrote with Mike Gagerman and Andrew Waller (American Pie Presents Beta House). Scot Armstrong‘s other writing credits include Road Trip, Starsky & Hutch, School for Scoundrels, The Heartbreak Kid and Semi-Pro. He also served as an executive producer on USA Network’s Playing House, and he created the upcoming Showtime series Dice, debuting on April 10.
