Here’s a Super Bizarre Trailer for ‘Pottersville’, Where Michael Shannon Gets Mistaken for Bigfoot

Pottersville is a movie that’s been in some form of production well over a year now. It has a terrific cast, lead by none other than the great Michael Shannon. As for the story, well, it takes place in a small New England town where Shannon is mistaken for a bigfoot after drunkenly stumbling around in a gorilla suit.

Yes, of course it is.

See this trailer for your own eyes, and try and make sense of the existence of this movie…

The plot centers on Maynard (Shannon), a beloved local businessman who is mistaken for the legendary Bigfoot during an inebriated romp through town in a makeshift gorilla costume. The sightings set off an international Bigfoot media spectacle and a windfall of tourism dollars for a simple American town hit by hard times.


Frankly, I am stunned that this is a movie at all. Aside from Michael Shannon we have Judy Greer, Ron Perlman, Christina Hendricks, Ian McShane, and Thomas Lennon as some sort of Monster Hunter guy. Amazing.

Anyway, Pottersville is planning on a theatrical release date at some point this year. Let’s go ahead and set the over/under box office take at $100. I’m tempted to take the under.
