Late Night was one of the biggest comedies to come out of Sundance. Mindy Kaling’s smart, fresh writing is definitely on display in this trailer. This looks like The Devil Wears Prada set in the world of late night television and I’m totally here for it. I can’t remember when I’ve been so excited to see an Emma Thompson film. She looks amazing in this. One of the things on my summer movie checklist every year is an indie comedy like Little Miss Sunshine or The Big Sick. I get to check this one off my list early when it comes out on June 6.
On the other side of the spectrum and the other side of summer (August 16) is Good Boys. This is goofy, raunchy, lowbrow comedy about bad behavior. It’s basically the new Superbad and it makes me so happy. I watched this trailer twice in a row when it came out. The movie features Jacob Tremblay from Room and Wonder and Keith L. Williams from the TV show The Last Man on Earth. This will be the perfect film to beat those end of summer blues I always get around mid-to-late August. Please note: this is a red band trailer and it is NSFW.
There should be plenty of laughs this summer. Sundance favorites Brittany Runs a Marathon and dramedy The Farewell starring Awkwafina haven’t released trailers yet but should also be a lot of fun.
