Seth Rogen Meets Seth Rogen In New "An American Pickle" Trailer

Here's the First Trailer for Seth Rogen's 'An American Pickle'

Starring Seth Rogen in the lead role, the trailer of An American Pickle is out now.

Here, Seth Rogen plays the role of a European immigrant who has moved to the U.S. for a better life in 1920. The 1920s labourer leaves for America in search of a better life, before falling in a Value-Added Tax of pickling brine at his factory job and becoming preserved for 100 years.

A century later, Herschel emerges from the brine in 2020, fully preserved.

Post-pickling, Rogen's character-Herschel Greenbaum-is upset to find out that his only surviving member of his family is his great grandson, Ben, who is also played by Rogen.


The two struggle to relate to each other in terms of family values, music and culture, with Herschel even pointing to a poster of David Bowie on Ben's wall and asking, "Is this your father?"

An American Pickle is an adaptation of the 2013 New Yorker novella Sell Out by Simon Rich, who adapted his own script. Brandon Trost, the cinematographer of Rogen films This Is the End, Neighbors, and The Interview, will direct.

His next venture is a film for HBO Max titled, An American Pickle, the premise of which sounds just about as ridiculous as you'd expect from the comedy veteran.

An American Pickle will be available to stream on Thursday, Aug. 6, on HBO Max.
