Jack Black Gets Whack-y in Trailer for Linklater's BERNIE
We got a peek at Richard Linklater's Bernie when it premiered at LA Film Fest last summer and filed this review. Millenium is planning their theatrical release of the film April 27th. They'll be taking it out for a stroll with the hometown crowd at SXSW before that and they've just released this trailer to celebrate.
In this dark comedy, director Richard Linklater captures all the hilarity, friendliness, eccentricity and absolute strangeness of small-town Texas life. Jack Black plays Bernie Tiede, Shirley MacLaine plays Mrs. Nugent, and Matthew McConaughey plays the town's blustery real-life District Attorney, Danny Buck Davidson, who was determined to get to the bottom of the crime. Co-written by Linklater and Skip Hollandsworth, BERNIE is a Mandalay Vision and Wind Dancer Films production.
