While technically speaking, David Gordon Green's indie "Prince Avalanche" is a remake of the Icelandic film "Either Way," to box it into that category alone is to miss the point. Shot pretty much in secret last year, and unveiled to great acclaim at Sundance, the filmmaker's latest is yet another sharp turn in a career that remains both exciting and unpredictable. And for those of you who couldn't make it to park city, the first trailer has arrived.

While technically speaking, David Gordon Green's indie "Prince Avalanche" is a remake of the Icelandic film "Either Way," to box it into that category alone is to miss the point. Shot pretty much in secret last year, and unveiled to great acclaim at Sundance, the filmmaker's latest is yet another sharp turn in a career that remains both exciting and unpredictable. And for those of you who couldn't make it to park city, the first trailer has arrived.

Starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, the film follows Alvin and Lance, dopey and insecure city workers spending the summer in solitude repainting traffic lines down the center of a country highway ravaged by wildfire. And that's about it plot-wise, more or less, as the movie tracks these two characters, their abrasively friendly relationship and more. Basically, for those looking for the Green of yesteryear, we wrote in our review from Sundance that instead it's "far from a retreat to the safe comfort of his generally more beloved indie films [but] an exciting step forward, a progressive blend of his career thus far." Which sounds perfect.

Powered by a soundtrack from Explosions in the Sky and David Wingo, the film hits VOD and theaters on August 9th. Watch below.
