Featuring Macaulay Culkin, Zoë Kravitz, and more
Indie-folk artist Adam Green has released the full-length trailer for his feature film and soundtrack album. ‘Aladdin’ is the second feature from the musician, artist, filmmaker and Moldy Peaches member.
Featuring Natasha Lyonne, Macaulay Culkin, Alia Shawkat, Zoë Kravitz and more, the official synopsis for the film states:
Set in the modern day world, Adam’s hyper-sensory, poetic and humorously subversive take on the classic Arabian Nights tale stars Adam as Aladdin living with his dysfunctional family in a “regular” American town ruled by a corrupt Sultan with a decadent socialite daughter.
Aside from starring in and writing the production’s entire soundtrack – which he’ll also tour – Green has even made all the props, from tables to the camel.
Speaking to Noisey about the project earlier this year, Green said: “The movie is set entirely inside a papier-mâché world. Filmed in a massive Brooklyn warehouse, we constructed a papier-mâché painted universe where real actors could act as if they were inside a real-life cartoon. The goal was to make a sort of Wizard of Oz out of cardboard. We constructed 500 props and 30 rooms all out of phone books, newspapers, glue, and house-paint. In a way it felt like we were constructing an analogue version of the internet.”
The full film and soundtrack album will be released on May 12th worldwide. You can watch the trailer below.
