MarVista Entertainment’s unveiled a new trailer for the romantic comedy The Year of Spectacular Men. The rom-com’s a real family affair, with actress Lea Thompson making her directorial debut on a film starring her daughters Madelyn Deutch and Zoey Deutch. Madelyn Deutch also wrote the screenplay to the 2018 theatrical release.
In addition to the Deutch siblings and their mom, the cast includes Avan Jogia (Twisted), Cameron Monaghan (Gotham), Melissa Bolona (The Hurricane Heist), Jesse Bradford (Shooter), Brandon T. Jackson (Get a Job), Zach Roerig (The Vampire Diaries), and Nicholas Braun (Whiskey Tango Foxtrot). Zoey Deutch, Howard Deutch, Gordon Gilbertson, and Parkside Pictures’ Dan Roth and Damiano Tucci produced the film.
MarVista Entertainment’s set to open the comedy in theaters on June 15, 2018.
“This has been such a joyous passion project for me and my whole family,” stated Thompson commenting on her debut as a director. “We feel incredibly lucky that our vigor and energy for The Year of Spectacular Men has been so genuinely matched by MarVista. We can’t wait to release our film with a company who truly believes in and sees the value in telling an authentic millennial woman’s story.”
The Plot: Izzy Klein has (barely) graduated from college, broken up (sorta) with her boyfriend, and is stranded in New York City with a bad case of pre-real-world millennial-itis. Unsure of what the next step is, her movie star little sister Sabrina convinces her to move back home to Los Angeles and into her shared apartment with movie star boyfriend Sebastian, where they can keep an eye on rudderless Izzy.
Emotionally unable to deal with the loss of her father, and slightly distracted by her mother Deb’s newfound love affair with loopy yogi Amythyst, Izzy funnels her energy into dating a colorful bouquet of five complicated and spectacular men: Aaron, Ross, Logan, Mikey, and Charlie, over the course of the next year. Coping just barely with the help of her trusty notebook, she falls in and out of some not so romantic romances, and figures out that when it totally feels like the end of your story, it’s often just the beginning.
