Rosemarie DeWitt in Official Trailer for Realtor Dark Comedy 'Arizona'
"Say whatever you gotta say to close the deal, don't you?" RLJ Ent. has released the official trailer for an indie dark comedy action film titled Arizona, which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year in the Midnight category. Arizona is directed by filmmaker Jonathan Watson, who has previously worked as an assistant director for Michael Bay, John McTiernan, Frank Darabont, Damien Chazelle, Phil Lord & Chris Miller, and many others. Set in the midst of the 2009 housing crisis, this darkly comedic story follows Cassie Fowler, a single mom and struggling realtor whose life goes off the rails when she witnesses a murder. Rosemarie DeWitt stars, along with Danny McBride, Luke Wilson, Kaitlin Olson, David Alan Grier, and Elizabeth Gillies. This looks like a wild & crazy good time, it's definitely worth a watch.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Jonathan Watson's Arizona, direct from YouTube:
Cassie (Rosemarie DeWitt) is a real estate agent and single mom struggling to keep it all together during the housing crisis of 2009. Her problems go from bad to worse when disgruntled client Sonny (Danny McBride) violently confronts Cassie’s boss and then kidnaps Cassie – making one outrageously bad, and bloody, decision after another. Arizona is directed by American filmmaker Jonathan Watson, making his feature directorial debut after working as an assistant director since 1995. The screenplay is written by Luke Del Tredici. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year in the Midnight category; it also just played at the Fantasia Film Festival this summer. RLJ Entertainment will release Watson's Arizona in select theaters + on VOD starting August 24th later this month. How does that look? Who's interested?

Dark comedies are hard to get right and when they're on, they're great. This looks like it could go either way.

It doesn't really look funny to me. But yes, it's dark, in some grotesque way ...

I will see basically any McBride vehicle. He hasn't starred in anything I haven't thought was great.

I thought Your Highness was pretty not great.

LOL. Pretty not great indeed! But hey (almost) no bats 1000.

Damn, I actually enjoyed that trailer more than I thought I would. Danny McBride is almost always funny and it's always great to see David Alan Greer. The whole thing looks and feel like some kinda spiritual sequel to "Raising Arizona".
