First Teaser for 'Sharper' Fifth Ave Con Comedy with Julianne Moore
"Let me give you a piece of advice - if you're going to steal, steal a LOT." Apple has revealed the first look teaser trailer for a new con comedy set in New York City called Sharper, marking the feature directorial debut of TV director Benjamin Caron. All of the synopses available so far are vague so far because this one should be a fun one when it opens in February: a con artist takes on Manhattan's billionaires. "Motivations are suspect and expectations are turned upside down when nothing is as it seems." The script for this film was on the "Black List" before being produced by Apple and A24. The ensemble cast features Julianne Moore, Sebastian Stan, Justice Smith, Brianna Middleton, Darren Goldstein, & John Lithgow. There's no real footage in this teaser, just a first look glimpse at the cast's faces flashing before money flying by in the background. Still hope this might be the next great take-down-the-rich movie coming up in 2023.
Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Benjamin Caron's Sharper, direct from Apple TV's YouTube:
