20th Century Fox has released a new Why Him? trailer, which arrives in both Red and Green Band versions for the upcoming comedy starring James Franco (The Interview, The Night Before), Bryan Cranston (Trumbo, upcoming The Infiltrator) and Zoey Deutch (Beautiful Creatures, Dirty Grandpa).
Over the holidays, Ned (Bryan Cranston), an overprotective but loving dad and his family visit his daughter at Stanford, where he meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend, Laird (James Franco). The straight-laced Ned thinks Laird, who has absolutely no filter, is a wildly inappropriate match for his daughter. The one-sided rivalry—and Ned’s panic level—escalate when he finds himself increasingly out of step in the glamorous high-tech hub, and learns that Laird is about to pop the question.
Directed by John Hamburg (Along Came Polly, I Love You, Man) from a script he co-wrote with Ian Helfer (The Oranges), Why Him? opens in theaters on December 25th.
