If Zac Efron’s hoping for a comeback at the box office after the disastrous We Are Your Friends, Dirty Grandpa doesn’t look like the right vehicle to bring in big bucks at the box office. The first trailer finds Efron’s character reluctantly hitting the road with his grandpa (played by Robert De Niro) for a rowdy spring break that seems to involve a shirtless competition between the two. Directed by Dan Mazer, the cast also includes Julianne Hough, Zoey Deutch, Aubrey Plaza, Dermot Mulroney, Danny Glover, and Adam Pally.
Dirty Grandpa will be released in theaters on January 22, 2016.
Jason Kelly (Efron) is one week away from marrying his boss’s uber-controlling daughter, putting him on the fast track for a partnership at the law firm. However, when the straight-laced Jason is tricked into driving his foul-mouthed grandfather, Dick (De Niro), to Daytona for spring break, his pending nuptials are suddenly in jeopardy. Between riotous frat parties, bar fights, and an epic night of karaoke, Dick is on a quest to live his life to the fullest and bring Jason along for the ride. Ultimately, on the wildest journey of their lives, “dirty” Grandpa and his uptight grandson discover they can learn from one another and form the bond they never had.
