Anchor Bay will be putting it into American homes and cinemas in the coming weeks. And ahead of its release, the first trailer has launched over on Yahoo Movies, along with the first poster on Next Movie, giving us a great look at the upcoming film.
Paul & Paul are the stars of this holiday season in “All Is Bright,” the new dark comedy from director Phil Morrison (“Junebug”) about two disgruntled French Canadian ne’er-do-wells who travel to New York City with a get-rich-quick scheme of selling Christmas trees. It’s a different kind of holiday comedy, one with as much coal in its stocking as there are cookies on its plate (and don’t forget one for Rudolph!).
Paul Rudd and Paul Giamatti take the lead in the comedy, with Sally Hawkins, Amy Landecker, Colman Domingo, Peter Hermann, Halley Feiffer, and Morgan Spector completing the cast.
Morrison (Junebug) is making his third feature behind the camera with the film, directing from a script penned by Melissa James Gibson (The Americans).
Sidney Kimmel (Moneyball, The Place Beyond the Pines) is throwing his weight behind the film as a producer, with Giamatti himself serving as executive producer alongside his wife, Emily Giamatti, who’s producing the movie.
All Is Bright is set to be released in the US on VOD on September 10th and in cinemas on October 4th. No word yet on a UK release date, but given the brilliant cast and the solid early reviews, here’s to hoping it will arrive on our shores later this year or early next.
