The Kings of Summer Trailer: Ron Swanson, Dad

A few weeks ago, a teaser for The Kings of Summer hit. It didn't feature any of the indie's heavy hitters, but it did make Jordan Vogt-Roberts's film look like something worth scribbling on the calendar. Now a full-on trailer's here, featuring Nick Offerman as a fully bearded dad, Megan Mullally as a goofy mom, and Alison Brie and Mary Lynn Rajskub, too. The story centers on three teenagers (Hannah Montana's Moisés Arias, The Big C's Gabriel Basso, and Melissa & Joey's Nick Robinson) sneaking into the woods to build a house, boil their own water, play real life Fruit Ninja with some watermelon, and generally try channeling Stand by Me.
