Hulu’s New Comedy Film

A trailer for Hulu’s new original film The Binge imagines a world where all drugs and alcohol are legal for one day only.

Instead of a Purge-Esque society intent on fear and destruction, this project is proposing the fun aspects of changing the rules.

Vince Vaughn is the biggest name in the cast. Vaughn has featured in more dramatic fare during the past few years but now makes a return to what originally made him famous. This time, he’s an uptight principal tasked with warning the kids as he experiences his own mischief during the night.

Here’s the trailer –

Hulu’s synopsis reads –

“In the not so distant future all drinking and drugs have been made completely illegal by the government… except for one night a year. High school seniors, Griffin, Hags and Andrew make a pilgrimage to get to the best party in town where all their dreams will come true… Sure they will have to avoid their crazed principal (Vince Vaughn), violent siblings and the wild animals roaming the streets, but that’s all part of the fun! Their friendship will be tested, love live’s will be rattled and their brains completely scrambled. One thing is for sure, no one’s life is EVER the same after participating in The Binge!”

Skyler Gisondo, Dexter Darden, Eduardo Franco, Grace Van Dien, Tony Cavalero, Zainne Saleh, Marta Piekarz, Esteban Benito, Brittany Garms, Natalie Goldberg, and Affion Crockett join Vaughn in this cast. The Binge is written by Jordan VanDina and will be directed by Jeremy Garelick.

The Binge premieres on Hulu on August 28th.
