Heavy Metal Auteur T-Shirts and The Grand trailer

In other Herzog news, the first trailer for Zak Penn's The Grand has finally shown up online. Penn directed Herzog in the absurdly funny Incident at Loch Ness, and this film features Herzog as "the scary German." Evidently, the majority of the film was improvised, with the actors playing an actual poker tournament and letting the script write itself along the way. Sounds like an interesting idea, and I for one cannot resist any film that features both Werner Herzog and Woody Harrelson.
