"I'm gonna fight for her, Mitch. I'm not going anywhere…" Gravitas Ventures has unveiled the trailer for a spunky indie dramedy titled Braking for Whales, which marks the directorial debut of filmmaker Sean McEwen. The film is headed to VOD coming up this spring, for those interested in watching this one. Tom Felton and Tammin Sursok star in this as Brandon and Star, estranged brother and sister. The two are brought together after their mother's recent death and end up on a road trip trying to fulfill her absurd final request to dispose of her ashes in the body of a whale. The full cast includes Wendi McLendon-Covey, David Koechner, Austin Swift, and Carrie Clifford. Looks like a solid road trip comedy meets siblings emotional bonding story. There's a few unexpected wacky moments in this trailer that make it worth a look.
