Seth Rogen performs a 1920s immigrant who, after a century-long slumber in a vat of pickle brine, awakens and meets his great-grandson (additionally performed by Rogen) within the first trailer for An American Pickle.
Within the trailer for the HBO Max movie, Rogen performs Herschel Greenbaum, who emigrates to America along with his spouse with the hope of pursuing the American Dream.
“One day, while working at his factory job, he falls into a vat of pickles and is brined for 100 years. The brine preserves him perfectly and when he emerges in present-day Brooklyn, he finds that he hasn’t aged a day,” HBO Max stated of the movie.
“But when he seeks out his family, he is troubled to learn that his only surviving relative is his great-grandson, Ben Greenbaum (also played by Rogen), a mild-mannered computer coder whom Herschel can’t even begin to understand.”
As Ben’s dad and mom have additionally died, the 2 Greenbaums join over their shared grief, with Herschel motivated by his century-old promise to carry fortune to the Greenbaum identify.
An American Pickle, primarily based on a New Yorker novella by Simon Wealthy and directed by Brandon Trost, premieres on HBO Max on August sixth.
