NEW POSTER AND TRAILER FOR HILARIOUS MEDIEVAL COMEDY "YOUR HIGHNESS" WITH JAMES FRANCO AND NATALIE PORTMAN

The first poster and a new trailer have been released this week for the hilarious comedy adventure YOUR HIGHNESS which comes out next April. Throughout history, tales of chivalry have burnished the legends of brave,
handsome knights who rescue fair damsels, slay dragons and conquer evil. But behind many a hero is a good-for-nothing younger brother trying just to stay out of the way of those dragons, evil and trouble in general. Danny McBride and James Franco team up for this epic comedy adventure set in a fantastical world. As two princes on a daring mission to save their land, they must rescue the heir apparent's fiancée before their kingdom is destroyed.
Thadeous (McBride) has spent his life watching his perfect older brother Fabious (Franco) embark upon valiant journeys and win the hearts of his people. Tired of being passed over for adventure,
adoration and the throne, he's settled for a life of wizard's weed, hard booze and easy maidens. But when Fabious' bride-to-be, Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel), gets kidnapped by the evil wizard Leezar (Justin Theroux), the king gives his deadbeat son an ultimatum: Man up and help rescue her or get cut off.
Half-assedly embarking upon his first quest, Thadeous joins Fabious to trek across the perilous outlands and free the princess. Joined by Isabel (Natalie Portman), an elusive warrior with a
dangerous agenda of her own-the brothers must vanquish horrific creatures and traitorous knights before they can reach Belladonna. If Thadeous can find his inner hero, he can help his brother prevent the destruction of his land. Stay a slacker, and not only does he die a coward, he gets front row seats to the dawn of an all-new Dark Ages. The film, full of all sorts of craziness, also stars Damian Lewis .

  12. You know I'm looking forward to this; epic it shall be. Plus, with added Natalie goodness, it can't do any wrong, hehe.

  13. Haha, can't wait for that film, it looks hilarious. This trailer is much more suitable for everyone as opposed to their other one, but it isn't as funny. I do love the "because I'm rich, I live in a castle and oh ya, I can do magic!"

  18. In a bit of irony, my wife and I were just discussing, not ten minutes ago, how James Franco has become--or has been trying to become--a serious actor who doesn't take on silly roles anymore.

  22. It has been some time since we had a funny medieval. Your Highnesses is just in time.

  23. I love James Franco and Natalie Portman and I love comedies (so I hope it's good!). I caught a glimpse of Monty Python's Eric Idle in the trailer so that should be a portent of funniness. :)

  24. @Avalon
    yep, we need much more medieval things in cinemas!

    @Phylly
    the whole film has a Monty Python vibe if you ask me :)
