They’ve got the munchies…for adventure! BFFs Harold and
Kumar return April 25 for another dazed and confused romp in
Harold and Kumar
Escape from Guantanamo Bay
this time getting sidetracked during a totally innocent trip to Amsterdam.

Carice von

(Feb. 15),

(Jan. 4), and
Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
(May 22).
