CINCINNATI — Two new trailers for "Goat," the James Franco-produced movie starring Nick Jonas that filmed in Cincinnati and Hamilton in 2015, have been released.  

Entertainment Weekly released an exclusive clip Friday for the movie, which tells the story of a college student who is hazed as part of a fraternity initiation. The film is scheduled for limited release Sept. 23.

Entertainment website premiered a much darker red band trailer of the film on Tuesday. (Warning: The video contains nudity and adult language.)

MTV released the first full-length trailer for "Goat" in July. The movie is an adaptation of Brad Land's 2004 memoir of the same name.

Franco filmed another movie,"The Long Home," which he directs and stars in with Northern Kentucky native Josh Hutcherson, at the same time as "Goat" last year. That movie is scheduled to hit theaters in 2017.

The director, actor and producer is shooting two more movies with his Rabbit Bandini production company, primarily in Hamilton, this year. The first movie, "Blood Heist," began filming in the region Aug. 31. Details of Franco's fourth movie to be shot in the region have not been released.

"Goat" is scheduled to open in New York, Los Angeles and other select cities on Sept. 23. It also will be available through on-demand and digital services the same day. It is unclear whether the movie will be released to local theaters at that time.

The movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
