New red-band trailer for Bobcat Goldthwait's God Bless America is supremely dark and funny

Jan. 30, 2012by: George Merchan

So we caught a glimpse of a mostly red poster for Bobcat Goldthwait's GOD BLESS AMERICA not long ago, and now appropriately we're getting a new red-band trailer that happens to showcase a very dark and funny-looking movie. There's really not much for me to add, except that if you've ever wanted to violently massacre all the worst in our popular culture today, then this film will be right up your alley!

Starring Joel Murray and Tara Lynne Barr, GOD BLESS AMERICA will be released through VOD on April 6th and then in limited theatrical release on May 11th.

Synopsis: Loveless, jobless and possibly terminally ill, Frank has had enough of the downward spiral of America. With nothing left to lose, Frank takes his gun and decides to off the stupidest, cruelest and most repellent members of society with an unusual accomplice: 16-year-old Roxy, who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement. From stand-up comedian and director Bobcat Goldthwait comes a scathing and hilarious attack on all that is sacred in the United States of America.

oh wow that was certainly interesting to watch & not to be a sour puss but how would a movie like this even get greenlit considering how sensitive & PC America already is, I get that its satire & comedic but who hasn't wanted to do exactly what the premise of this movie is in real life.

Cant wait!

Been waiting for this since he described it in his interview on the Joblo Movie Podcast...looks very dark but still hilarious!

This is a guy who describes a script he's writing that sounds so outrageous and dark that you go "theres no way he's gonna be able to make that, let alone release it" and he goes and does just that. The guy has a vision and balls.

Just

watched WORLDS GREATEST DAD over the weekend and it was most excellent. I give the award for most hateable character in history to the douche son of Robin Williams.

Also, why do these movies have to have a HIT GIRL clone. I guess to make the premise easier to swallow.

Fuck yeah!

Been eagerly anticipating Bobcat's next film since seeing World's Greatest Dad, which I absolutely LOVED. Already saw the trailer when it premiered on Hulu, but I'll totally watch this again...

Super is to Daredevil as G.B.A. is to The Punisher

I don't want to judge this movie to harshly cause I loved Super and this film looks like a spiritual sequel, but damn, Bobcat . . . you make some dark movies. I worry about the guy.

Not to disagree, but you know he didn't make Super, right? I only ask because you mention Super twice without citing any of Bobcat's other movies (as effed-up as they might be).

this is so messed up...
granted, i thought of killing some of those people myself every once in a while, but still, actually doing it and making a movie about it? do we really need to see this?
i think not

I need to this. It looks hilarious. Like a stepped up version of Falling Down. Oh, and it's not a documentary either.
