Following its premiere at SXSW, Universal Pictures released the red band trailer for the Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg-produced comedy Good Boys.

The visuals above feature three 12-year-old friends named Max (Jacob Tremblay), Thor (Brady Noon), and Lucas (Keith L. Williams) going through the woes of teenhood with all the cursing, social awkwardness, and blind innocence attached to it. Eventually, the kids destroy a drone that belongs to Max’s dad (Will Forte) before subsequently getting involved in a slew of misadventures in an attempt to replace it before his father comes home.

The official synopsis reads as follows:

Just how bad can one day get? The creative minds behind Superbad, Pineapple Express and Sausage Party take on sixth grade hard in the outrageous comedy, Good Boys.

After being invited to his first kissing party, 12-year-old Max (Room’s Jacob Tremblay) is panicking because he doesn’t know how to kiss. Eager for some pointers, Max and his best friends Thor (Brady Noon, HBO’s Boardwalk Empire) and Lucas (Keith L. Williams, Fox’s The Last Man On Earth) decide to use Max’s dad’s drone – which Max is forbidden to touch – to spy (they think) on a teenage couple making out next door.

But when things go ridiculously wrong, the drone is destroyed. Desperate to replace it before Max’s dad (Will Forte, The Last Man on Earth) gets home, the boys skip school and set off on an odyssey of epically bad decisions involving some accidentally stolen drugs, frat-house paintball, and running from both the cops and terrifying teenage girls (Life of the Party’s Molly Gordon and Ocean’s Eight’s Midori Francis).

Co-starring Lil Rel Howery and Molly Gordon, catch Good Boys when it drops August 16.
