I have so many questions after watching An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn‘s trailer, not the least of which is what is this film actually about? The one and a half minute trailer’s easily one of the weirdest trailers of the year, and certainly does its job of making the viewer want to know more about this bizarre romantic comedy.
The 2018 comedy’s cast includes Legion co-stars Aubrey Plaza and Jemaine Clement as well as Critics’ Choice Awards winner Emile Hirsch (Milk) and Craig Robinson (Ghosted, The Office). Jim Hosking (The Greasy Strangler) directed from a script he co-wrote with David Wike. The behind the scenes team includes director of photography Nanu Segal, editors Mark Burnett and Nick Emerson, and production designer Jason Kisvarday, with music by Andrew Hung.
Universal Pictures Content Group is releasing the romantic comedy in theaters, on VOD, and Digital HD on October 19, 2018.
The Plot: After getting fired by her scheming husband Shane Danger (Emile Hirsch) from his cappuccino shop, dissatisfied Lulu Danger (Aubrey Plaza) is stunned when a TV commercial for “An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn For One Magical Night Only” reveals a mysterious man from her past (Craig Robinson). When Shane and his bumbling cohorts steal the cashbox from Lulu’s adopted vegan brother Adjay (Sam Dissanayake), specialist Colin (Jemaine Clement) enters the fray to retrieve the stolen funds. But Lulu seizes the opportunity to run off in search of her mystery man—and events only become stranger from there. This is a story of love, theft, athletic swimming, and a magical magical event.
