When a young boy runs away from a residential nursing home to fulfil his dream of becoming a professional wrestler, what could go wrong?
The Peanut Buttler Falcon is like a Mark Twain story set in the modern day. This is Shia LeBoeuf's first film for two years, his last being Borg vs McEnroe.
He is joined by Dakota Johnson, who stared in all the 50 Shades movies and John Hawkes. Making his feature-length movie debut is Zack Gottsagen.
The trailer starts off with clips of Tyler (Shia LeBoeuf) and Zak (Zack Gottsagen). They are exploring, shooting, swimming and even get baptised.
We then see why they are together. Zak aspires to be a wrestler and wants to go an join The Salt Water Redneck wrestling school. Unfortunately for Zak, he lives in a residential nursing home due to his Down Syndrome. The only way to make this happen is to escape the nursing home…
Zak escapes the home by bending the bars in the night and running away. It is now Eleanor's (Dakota Johnson) task to bring him back.
Whilst trying to find his way he meets Tyler and explains his plan of joining wrestling school. Tyler is on the run and agrees to help Zak get to the school.
The two of them go on to form a formidable friendship until Eleanor finds them. Unwilling to join them on their adventure, Eleanor finds herself stranded after Zak throws her car keys into the sea.
Now the three-man team work on getting Zak to the school and helping him become The Peanut Butter Falcon!
The trailer has a real feel-good aspect to it. It looks like it's going to be a fun film with lots of laughs and maybe tears along the way.
