Magnolia Pictures has released a new red band trailer for Mark Pellington’s latest film, I Melt With You. It sort of has a 1980s ‘Brat Pack’ vibe to it, but just with more drugs and at least one bona fide former porn star in the form of Sasha Grey.
We’ve not seen the former music video director’s work since 2008’s Henry Poole is Here, with the exception of the Skeet Ulrich starring TV movie Back.
Synopsis: Richard (Thomas Jane), Ron (Jeremy Piven), Jonathan (Rob Lowe) and Tim (Christian McKay) are old college friends that gather annually for a week in Big Sur to celebrate their friendship and catch-up on each other’s lives. They seem like typical men in their forties – all with careers, families, and enormous responsibilities – but like most people there is a lot more beneath the surface. As the week progresses, they go down the rabbit hole of excess as mountains of drugs are consumed to a blaring rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack.
I Melt With You is in limited release in the US from 9 December 2011, following its debut at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. It does not currently have an Australian release date.
