First Trailer for Harold and Kumar 3 Filled with (3-D) Holiday Spirit
08.11.11 by Ryan
It seems like every year that the holiday season begins earlier and earlier. Here it is August and we have our first holiday movie trailer. Of course, it's the trailer for A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas, which isn't going to take anything about the holidays too seriously, even opening in November well before Christmas.
Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn) began their cinematic adventures together in 2004, when their mission was a simple one: Find a White Castle in order to satisfy their munchies. In the 2008 sequel, the duo were mistaken for terrorists and sent to Guantanamo Bay. In the latest installment, the boys are all grown up and have to find a Christmas tree for Harold's father-in-law.
The first trailer for #3 is more concerned with the returning Neil Patrick Harris (who plays the womanizing, drug-abusing, fictionalized version of himself he portrayed in Guantanamo Bay) than revealing the Christmas tree plot point. But, then again, is anyone too worried about the plot of a Harold & Kumar movie?
Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, who wrote both Harold & Kumar movies and directed Guantanamo Bay, return to write A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas. Newcomer Todd Strauss-Schulson directs. Eddie Kaye Thomas and David Krumholtz co-star.
