Staff Reporter | On 04, Aug 2020
Amazon is going camping this August with new comedy Get Duked! – and a trailer gives us a look at the dark and daft thriller.
Dean, Duncan and DJ Beatroot are teenage pals from Glasgow who embark on the Duke of Edinburgh Award, where foraging, teamwork and orienteering are the order of the day. Eager to cut loose and smoke weed in the Scottish Highlands, the trio finds themselves paired with straight-laced Ian, a fellow camper determined to play by the rules. After veering off-path into remote farmland that’s worlds away from their urban comfort zone, the boys find themselves hunted down by a shadowy force hell-bent on extinguishing their futures.
From writer-director Ninian Doff — making his feature debut after music videos and short films for artists including Run the Jewels, Miike Snow, Migos, and Mykki Blanco — comes an anarchic satire of generational politics, hip-hop loving farmers and hallucinogenic rabbit droppings that pits the youth of tomorrow against the status quo of yesterday.
Get Duked! stars Eddie Izzard, Kate Dickey, Georgie Glen, James Cosmo and a breakout young cast, including Samuel Bottomley, Viraj Juneja, Rian Gordon, and Lewis Gribben. The film arrives on Amazon Prime Video on 28th August. Here’s the trailer:
