Watch Adam Green’s “Never Lift a Finger” and Trailer for “Aladdin,” Starring Macaulay Culkin, Natasha Lyonne, Zoë Kravitz, Alia Shawkat, Francesco Clemente, and Matt Hitt

Adam Green is best known as one half of anti-folk duo The Moldy Peaches but typecast him as just a singer is premature, Green is an artist. Besides being a singer and a filmmaker, he’s an artist that creates vibrant and animated paintings as well as collages and papier-mâché sculptures. Which is the inspiration for the psychedelic and humorously subversive modern take on Aladdin. The trailer for his upcoming film stars Adam Green as Aladdin living with his dysfunctional family in a “regular” American town ruled by a corrupt Sultan with a decadent socialite daughter and manages to remix the classic tale of Arabian Nights that also stars Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) and Macaulay Culkin who Green previously worked with on The Wrong Ferarri, a feature film shot entirely on an iPhone. Aladdin also stars Natasha Lyonne, Zoë Kravitz, Francesco Clemente, and Matt Hitt.

 

Speaking to Noisey about the project earlier this year, Green said:

“The movie is set entirely inside a papier-mâché world. Filmed in a massive Brooklyn warehouse, we constructed a papier-mâché painted universe where real actors could act as if they were inside a real-life cartoon. The goal was to make a sort of Wizard of Oz out of cardboard. We constructed 500 props and 30 rooms all out of phone books, newspapers, glue, and house-paint. In a way it felt like we were constructing an analogue version of the internet.”

Most important thing to know about me is that I'm a melomaniac and shameless fangirl. I am addicted to concerts, they are my sanctuary and safe haven. When I'm on the front row on the barricade of a concert... I feel that I am truly home. I'm also a proud and happy vinyl crate-digger. Whether it's searching for vinyl at flea markets, garage sales, vintage shops... I am a sucker for the crackling of a good record when the needle drops on a turntable. I am a true Cancer with Moon in Cancer and ascending in Pisces. Also, loves dogs (especially my son Elvis) and quality food porn pictures. Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook: @youthquakermimi
