Movies: An American Pickle

"For everyone who has ever wished for a film starring Seth Rogen as two characters--one with a penchant for pickles--the trailer for An American Pickle has easily made their hyper-specific dream come true," IndieWire reported, noting that the project is HBO Max's first original film.

Directed by Brandon Trost (This Is the End, Neighbors, The Interview) and based on Simon Rich's novella "Sell Out" (from his collection Spoiled Brats: Stories), An American Pickle stars Rogen "as both Herschel Greenbaum, a struggling laborer who immigrates to America in 1920, and Ben Greenbaum, Herschel's mild-mannered computer programmer grandson," Indiewire wrote. Sarah Snook (Succession) also stars. An American Pickle will premiere August 6 on HBO Max.
