Red-band trailer for The Kings of Summer with Nick Offerman looks like a great entry in the coming-of-age genre

Every year we get inundated with the latest teen romp comedy that follows a standard formula of outcast kids getting into more trouble then they're ever used to with outrageous results that usually lead to them becoming more popular and solving some sort of familial dilemma. Well, THE KINGS OF SUMMER looks to fit right in line with that paradigm, but not in the way you'd expect. Rather than shuffling the kids off to some wild party to lose their virginity, the stars of Jordan Vogt-Roberts' coming-of-age comedy has the titular "Kings" heading into the wild, where they build their own makeshift house to survive a summer without their parents.

Shit the scene with Nick Offerman and Kumail Nanjiani (Portlandia) looks to be worth a look alone, but you factor in Alison Brie and Mary Lynn Rajskub (24) along with a healthy batch of raunchy humor that I don't have to cringe over with a PG-13 rating and I'm more than game.

Check it out:

Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Hannibal Buress, Megan Mullally, Thomas Middleditch, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kumail Nanjiani, Eugene Cordero, Angela Trimbur, Nick Rutherford, Craig Cackowski, and Tony Hale">The Kings of Summer Red Band Trailer from Nick Offerman

Here's the synopsis:

Premiering to rave reviews at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, THE KINGS OF SUMMER is a unique coming-of-age comedy about three teenagefriends Joe (Nick Robinson), Patrick (Gabriel Basso) and the eccentric and unpredictable Biaggio (Moises Arias) who, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods and living off the land. Free from their parents rules, their idyllic summer quickly becomes a test of friendship as each boy learns to appreciate the fact that family whether it is the one youre born into or the one you create is something you cant run away from.

THE KINGS OF SUMMER heads into the woods on May 31, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: Hit up You Tube for some of Kumail Nanjiani's guest spots on Portlandia. Hilarious stuff.

how cute the puking kid from Super 8 in an R rated comedy, all kidding aside, I actually dug that trailer, kinda got a Stand By Me vibe to it.

Okay, this looks like the Superbad of coming-of-age, rite-of-passage adventure movies now. Which is kind of messed up actually. But, in a good way. And I never tire of hearing Nick Offerman's dead-pan sarcasms. Few so effortlessly tread the line between badass and hilarious the way he can.

Alison, as creepy as this sounds, I love you.

Also, horrible rap music aside, this film looks like it might be pretty good. Alison, call me, definitely.
