Duck Butter Trailer

"You can't play it safe in love…" The Orchard + Netflix have debuted the first official trailer for an indie drama titled Duck Butter, premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival coming up. If you really want to know what the title means, look it up on Urban Dictionary and you'll understand. The concept of the film involves two women who meet at a concert, played by Alia Shawkat and Laia Costa (from Newness), who decide to spend 24 hours together. They try to fast-forward through a relationship, hoping to find a new way to create intimacy and explore romance. The cast includes Mae Whitman, Hong Chau, Kumail Nanjiani, Mark Duplass, and Kate Berlant. This was also produced by the Duplass Brothers, and has that quirky indie charm that they're best at nurturing. Seems like it might be emotional yet enjoyable. Get a first look.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Miguel Arteta's Duck Butter, direct from YouTube:
