Led by Michael Angarano (Red State) and Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises), we got our first look at the film last summer, just ahead of its debut in Toronto.
“John and Alice live in small-town America—20s, married, very much in love, and broke. Once voted “most likely to succeed,” Alice struggles to make ends meet while her friends enjoy the good life. Her husband John, neurotic and riddled with phobias, just wants to get the bills paid. But an accident leads them to a roadside antique shop where Alice is spontaneously drawn to a mysterious brass teapot. It isn’t long before they realize that this is no ordinary teapot and that perhaps they have found the answer to all of their financial woes… THE BRASS TEAPOT is a magical dark comedy that reminds us to be careful what we wish for.”
Starring alongside Angarano and Temple are the brilliant Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development), Alexis Bledel (Sin City), Jack McBrayer (30 Rock), Ben Rappaport (Outsourced), and Matt Walsh (Ted).
Mosley is directing from a script penned by Tim Macy, who wrote the original story upon which the film is based, after the pair turned it into a short film back in 2007.
The Brass Teapot will be released through VOD on 28th February, and will then get a limited US release on 5th April. No word yet on when we can look forward to it here in the UK, but after this great first trailer, I’m hoping it will be crossing the Atlantic shortly after. For now, here’s the first trailer, followed by the first poster, which you can click to enlarge.
