The film that we called “charming and disarmingly funny” is coming to Australian cinemas on 22 September 2017 from Sony Pictures Releasing. The new trailer (below) for BRIGSBY BEAR is but a mere taste of its awesomeness.
In the film, James (SNL‘s Kyle Mooney) has been living in a bunker with his parents (Mark Hamill and Jane Adams) for 25 years of his life. His only other company are the endless tapes of Brigsby Bear, a children’s TV show with a morality tale in each episode. When he is suddenly forced out of the bunker, he is unable to watch his beloved show anymore. In this confusing time, James must turn back to Brigsby for guidance, even if he has to finish the stories himself.
Directed by Dave McCary, and produced by Andy Samberg, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the film also stars Beck Bennett, Claire Danes, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Greg Kinnear, Kate Lyn Sheil, Ryan Simpkins, Matt Walsh and Michaela Watkins.
“Filled with references and allusions to countless films, along with a pitch-perfect recreation of 1980s television, it’s the kind of film that will leave you with a big sloppy grin on your face, and an overwhelming urge to do something positive.” See our full review for more of those pretty words, and then check out the trailer below.
