As evidence from her work on Saturday Night Live (impersonating Ivanka Trump no less!) and last year’s Hail! Caesar, Scarlett Johanssonhas a natural facility for comedies. Thus, it’s great to see her leading a group of talented young actresses (Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer, Zoë Kravitz, and SNL’s Kate McKinnon) in the raunchy comedy Rough Night.
Soon to be married Jess (Johansson) celebrates with her closest girlfriends for a wild bachelorette weekend in Miami. Their fun times immediately devolve into tragedy after the accidental death of a male stripper.
Though Rough Night‘s main focus is on entertainment, finding comedy amidst an accidental death will be an interesting challenge for the film. The great news is Broad City filmmaker Lucia Aniello is behind the camera, and she also co-wrote the script with Broad City scribe Paul W. Downs (Ilana Glazer is also a writer, producer, and actor on the acclaimed series).
With the level of talent involved, I have high hopes for Rough Night. Check out the recently released green band trailer and tell us what you think!
