Juno Temple seems to be everywhere these days. After a bit-part in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, she’s gone on to feature in an endless list: AFTERNOON DELIGHT, MAGIC MAGIC, LOVELACE, TRUCK STOP, HORNS, MALEFICENT and SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR, amongst others. However, her next finished project to be released will be THE BRASS TEAPOT, a dark comedy focusing on a couple’s fascination with money. Read on for the official synopsis:
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.
Temple co-stars alongside Michael Angarano (ALMOST FAMOUS, HAYWIRE), Alexis Bledel, Alia Shawkat, Ben Rappaport, Jack McBrayer and Matt Walsh. Although featuring a very talented and varied cast, I’m not impressed by the trailer/film. With a few funny moments, I can’t tell if it’s laugh-out-loud hilarious or just chuckle territory.
Directed by Ramaa Mosley, THE BRASS TEAPOT will hit VOD on 28th February and will be released in a limited number of US cinemas on 5th April. We’ll keep you updated as and when a UK release date is announced. In the meantime, check out the trailer (and poster) below.
