HBO Max has announced today (via USA Today) that the first trailer for Brandon Trost’s An American Pickle, starring Seth Rogen, is set to arrive this Friday, July 3. This follows the streaming service picking up the film from Sony Pictures, which was due to be released in cinemas later this year. We’ll be sure to have the first look here as soon as it lands.

Herschel Greenbaum, a struggling laborer, immigrates to America in 1920 with dreams of building a better life for his beloved family. One day, while working at his factory job, he falls into a vat of pickles and is brined for 100 years. The brine preserves him perfectly and when he emerges in present day Brooklyn, he finds that he hasn’t aged a day. But when he seeks out his family, he is troubled to learn that his only surviving relative is his great grandson, Ben Greenbaum, a mild-mannered computer coder whom Herschel can’t even begin to understand.

Starring Seth Rogen,Sarah Snook and Jorma Taccone, the film is released August 6 on HBO Max in the US, with a UK release date via Sky to be confirmed.
