The DO-DECA PENTATHLON Trailer

Hulk takes a look at the first trailer for SXSW hit THE DO-DECA PENTATHLON. 

LOOKS LIKE IT'S SXSW TRAILER DAY!

BEHOLD THE FIRST LOOK AT THE DUPLASS BROTHERS' THE DO-DECA PENTATHLON. HULK SAW THE FILM AT SOUTH BY AND LOVED IT. DON'T LET THE TRAILER FOOL YOU THOUGH, AS FROM THIS LOOK IT SEEMS TO BE A LITANY OF SHOTS OF MIDDLE AGED MEN AND THEIR FEEBLE ATTEMPTS AT ATHLETICISM. IN TRUTH, THE FILM EASILY THE MOST WELL-OBSERVED AND EMPATHETIC OFFERING THE DUPLASS BROTHERS HAVE EVER GIVEN US. FOR PROOF CHECK OUT APRIL'S REVIEW RIGHT HERE.

THE FILM HAS HAD A BIT OF AN ODD HISTORY THOUGH. THEY SHOT IT ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO AND THEN THE BROTHERS' DEAL TO MAKE CYRUS AND JEFF, WHO LIVES AT HOME CAME TO FRUITION AND THIS MOVIE HAD TO BE PUT ON THE BACK-BURNER. BUT ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL AND THEIR HIGHER PROFILE AT THE MOMENT CAN ONLY BE A GOOD THING FOR THIS GREAT LITTLE MOVIE.
