Cynical Christmas movie, or more than that? We’ll soon find that out, ’cause Phil Morrison‘s dark comedy All Is Bright opens next month. In case you’re not so familiar with the project, the movie stars Paul Giamatti and Paul Rudd as two Christmas tree salesmen who travel to New York to… well, to sell trees, what else? If you want to see what it looks like – head inside to find a brand new trailer, images and poster for the whole thing!
Morrison directed the movie from a script written by Melissa James Gibson, which follows two French Canadians who travel to New York City during the holiday season with a get-rich-quick scheme of selling Christmas trees.
In other words, Giamatti stars as a no-nonsense, recently released ex-con named Dennis, who is trying to get his life and his wife back. Rudd, on the other hand, plays his charming, shallow, former partner-in-crime named Rene, who is now living with Dennis’s estranged wife.
Here’s what it looks like:
And here’s the rest of the story:
Feeling guilty and knowing Dennis needs a job, Rene reluctantly agrees to make Dennis a partner in the scheme. Though the two former friends struggle with each other and an eclectic array of tough New York customers, they discover much about themselves in the process.
Also starring Sally Hawkins, Amy Landecker, Colman Domingo and Peter Hermann, All Is Bright is set to hit theaters on October 4th, 2013.
