Seems like someone got a stern talking to because the latest Pottersville trailer looks like a completely different movie.
It’s not everyday that a movie receives two trailers in two days, but Pottersville is not your typical movie. If you recall, yesterday we brought you the somewhat baffling trailer and poster for the film, which tells the story of a small town man (Michael Shannon) being mistaken for Bigfoot. The promotional materials, which were the first to be made available for the feature, did not touch on the plot at all. You can find those materials here.
This morning, without warning, a second trailer for Pottersville appeared online. The new footage looks completely different from that revealed yesterday, and it’s edited in such a way that the clip actually explains what happens in the film. You are also introduced to the star-studded cast, as well as the kind of humor one can expect from the story. You can view that footage at the top of this post.
The official synopsis for Pottersville reads:
Its a long cold winter in Pottersville, and struggling store owner Maynard (Shannon) is hit by hard times. During a late-night drunken wander through town, Maynard is mistaken for the legendary Bigfoot, setting off an international media spectacle and attracting a lot of much needed business for the town. When TVs Monster Hunter, Brock Masterson, (Lennon) turns up and joins the Sheriff (Perlman) in his hunt for the beast, Maynard must maintain the illusion to protect the rebirth of his beloved town.
As we told you yesterday, Pottersville is currently scheduled for a limited theatrical release beginning November 10. It is unclear how the film’s release will continue from that point, but a story by Screenrant back in May claimed that Netflix had bought the distribution rights for the film. If true, it’s likely the title will hit the streaming giant before the end of the year. Follow Substream on Twitter for updates.
