gentlemen broncis posterI'm sure some of you have already heard of Ronald Chevalier, the fictional science fiction author at the center of Gentlemen Broncos, the new flick from Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess. For those yet to meet this enigmatic master of the written word, we offer you the first official trailer for the film, plus a series of funny viral shorts starring Flight of the Conchords' Jemaine Clemente as Chevalier.

The film stars Michael Angarano as Benjamin, a sci-fi geek and fledgling writer who joins an absurd writing camp led by Chevalier. After noticing Benjamin's talent, Chevalier steals the boy's latest work and turns it into a best seller set for a film adaptation. The film also brings the writer's strange sci-fi stories to life with bizarre fantasy sequences starring the great Sam Rockwell, who describes his character as "Captain Kangaroo in drag."
