Danny McBride is hoping that audiences this weekend will be able to go along with the jokes of his fantasy action movie that is Your Highness.
Danny explained to MTV News that the goal of Your Highness was to make “a legitimate fantasy action movie and then [figure] out how to make it a comedy without blowing the fantasy out of the water and still keeping that.”
“At the end of the day, when you’re involved in a movie like this, you want the audience to let go and be able to follow this,” he explained. “Even in finding a villain like Justin [Theroux] — he destroys that role. He’s awesome at it. For us, even finding humor in a guy who has to fulfill a prophecy and he has all these pressures put on him by his parental figures, we’re just trying to find the humanity and the comedy in all these characters.”
Will you being Your Highness this weekend?
