While the summer movie season is of course great for the big blockbusters like “Iron Man 3”, “Star Trek Into Darkness” and “Man of Steel”, it’s also a great time for indie films. “Moonrise Kingdom” last year made a big splash. Aug. 9 will see the release of “Prince Avalanche” starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch.

I’m having trouble loading the trailer, but you can check it out here.

The film looks really funny and engaging and is one to keep on your radar screen. The only worrisome factor is director David Gordon Green’s most recent films include “Your Highness”, “The Sitter” and “Pineapple Express”. Hopefully this winds up better than those films did.
