‘An American Pickle’ on HBO Max has released its first trailer for the upcoming comedy that stars Seth Rogen and is set to premiere on the platform on August 6th.
It’s almost time and the excitement can be felt after the release of the trailer, it has set a buzz in the air as one can hardly ever be disappointed with a Seth Rogen film.
For those who still do not know the storyline of ‘An American Pickle’ is about an immigrant worker named Herschel Greenbaum with dreams of building a better life for his family. One day while working at his factory job he ends up falling into a vat of pickles in 1920 which somehow preserves him in the brine for 100 years, he wakes up in 2020 not having aged a single day, but the world around him is completely different.
Herschel Greenbaum finds out that he has one surviving relative who is his great-grandson Ben Greenbaum, who is a mild-mannered computer coder, and they try to get along but seem to just not understand one another. The funny thing about this is that both roles are acted out by Seth Rogen.
