Nick Nolte and Robert Redford star in first trailer for A Walk In The Woods

The first trailer has arrived online for A Walk In The Woods, the big screen adaptation of Bill Bryson’s memoir of the same name, in which old pals Robert Redford and Nick Nolte set out to hike the Appalachian Trail.

It’s quite the ordeal our craggy heroes are taking on, and a combination of sharp uphill gradients, aggressively bad weather and hungry bears all make their presence felt along the way. Fortunately the two have each other and their constant bickering to see them through.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

Some of the gags on show here seem a little route-one, but Redford and Nolte make for an agreeable screen duo, and the scenery looks suitably spectacular. There’s even a CGI grizzly or two for good measure…

Directed by Ken Kwapis and co-starring Emma Thompson, Mary Steenburgen and Nick Offerman, A Walk In The Woods will open in the US on 2 September 2015 and the UK on 11 September 2015.
