New Trailer For 'Hunt For The Wilderpeople' Is Delightfully Hilarious & Clever

By Matt O.

Writer-Director Taika Waititi who is currently working on Marvel's epic Thor: Ragnarok, set to be released next year. The up-and-coming director of What We Do In the Shadows next film to be seen on the big-screen will be the heartfelt/clever/silly looking coming of age comedy Hunt for the Wilderpeople. The second official trailer has been released and it looks even better than the first. The film stars newcomer Julian Dennison as Ricky Baker (a real bad egg) who is sent to live with his Unle Hec played by the great Sam Neill (Jurassic Park). 

Check out the unique looking film below in the latest trailer, after you do, let us know what you think and sound off in the comments below with your thoughts.

Here's the official synopsis:

"Raised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family. Equal parts road comedy and rousing adventure story, director Taika Waititi (WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, upcoming THOR: RAGNORAK) masterfully weaves lively humor with emotionally honest performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison. A hilarious, touching crowd-pleaser, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE reminds us about the journey that growing up is (at any age) and those who help us along the way."

Hunt for the Wilderpeople is set to hit theaters on June 24th.
