Matthew McConaughey's upcoming aptly titled film "Surfer, Dude" has released its new underage-restricted trailer on the Web. It is expected to show in limited theaters on September 5.
The new comedy teaser isn't really kid-friendly, containing some nudity and lots of smoking. But aside from that, the trailer is just like the film's earlier released version in July.
McConaughey plays "soul-surfer" Steve Addington, who returns to his Malibu hometown for the summer only to find that the sea has been devoid of big waves. With the aid of his manager (Woody Harrelson), his mentor (Scott Glen), and his guardian angel (Willie Nelson), he then joins Virtual Reality Video Games and Reality TV to earn some cash.
