Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch in 'Prince Avalanche' -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

There’s nothing like spending a summer painting road lines on a desolate Texas road to really get to know someone. In Prince Avalanche, Alvin (Paul Rudd) and his girlfriend’s brother Lance (Emile Hirsch) do just that. It’s the summer of 1988 and the mismatched pair are on the job out in the middle of nowhere for the duration.

Directed by David Gordon Green, Prince Avalanche premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and was adapted from the 2011 Icelandic film Either Way. Though Green started his career making lyrical odes to the overlooked classes and places with films like George Washington and All the Real Girls, more recently, Green has found success (and failure) with star-studded broad comedies like Pineapple Express and Your Highness. Based on the trailers and early reviews, Prince Avalanche promises both poignancy and comedy and seems to be an amalgam of Green’s diverse tastes.

Click below to take a look at the new poster for the film, which opens in theaters and VOD on August 9.

Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch walk the line in 'Prince Avalanche' trailer -- VIDEO

Prince Avalanche looks like a movie for anyone who has ever wondered who paints the lines on country roads. Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch star as road workers in a desolate area of Texas that leaves them increasingly getting on each other’s nerves. In the trailer, Rudd writes to the unseen Madison about how he doesn’t miss city life and how he is pretty sure there’s something wrong with her brother (Hirsch). Writer/director David Gordon Green directed bro-comedies like Pineapple Express, The Sitter, and Your Highness, but judging from this trailer, Avalanche is going to be quieter, subtler, and more indie, like Green’s All The Real Girls and Snow Angels.

Avalanche premiered at Sundance and was quickly scooped up by Magnolia Pictures. The film also screens this week at the Tribeca Film Festival. It will be released Aug. 9.

Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch talk 'Prince Avalanche' at Sundance: VIDEO

How did Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch enhance their performances in Prince Avalanche, a remake of the Icelandic film Either Way that director David Gordon Green describes as a “deceptively simple” character study centered on the relationship between two men repairing a road in Texas? For Rudd, it involved stifling his “Alpha-male” tendencies — which was hard, given all the steroids on the set. (They’re kidding… we hope.)
