Watch: Johnny Knoxville and Rob Riggle Chase Unruly Children Through the Woods in the Trailer for 'Nature Calls' (VIDEO)

Patton Oswalt and Johnny Knoxville in "Nature Calls."
If the trailer's any indication, "Nature Calls," due out in early November, will offer a tale of wayward boy scouts considerably less sedate than Wes Anderson's stylized summer idyll, "Moonrise Kingdom."

With bawdy favorites Rob Riggle and Johnny Knoxville front and center as two of the scouts' would-be wranglers, "Nature Calls" looks like an R-rated hybrid of Judd Apatow's "Heavy Weights" and William Golding's "Lord of the Flies." "Children don't live in the woods, they die," observes the incongruosly named Gentry (Riggle) near the end of the trailer.

Though the film appears rife with nudity, violence and profanity, "Nature Calls" deals in material somewhat safer for satire than director Todd Rohal's last movie, "The Catechism Cataclysm," which bore the tag line, "God will fuck you up."
