Fresh off of his 78th birthday, screen legend Christopher Walken is still working and has a new movie on the way. “Percy vs Goliath” is a biographical drama that actually came out in Canada late last year. Now, ahead of its upcoming US premiere, the film has dropped a new trailer and Walken fans have something to look forward to. The film is essentially an underdog story – a legal drama with some heart that also stars Christina Ricci, Zach Braff, and Adam Beach.
Walken plays a small town farmer who is taken to court by a large corporation accusing him of using patented seeds. But the truth is he’s been using the same method his family has used for generations – saving and harvesting their own seeds. “I get sued for doing the same thing my family’s been doing for hundreds of years,” he declares. I’m not well versed in this world but I do love a good underdog story and I’ll watch Walken in just about anything. This one has all the ingredients for a good compelling drama.
“Percy vs Goliath” opens April 30th in theaters and on VOD. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
