Official Trailer for 'Marvelous and the Black Hole' with Rhea Perlman
"You reminded me of me when I was your age… I wasted a lot of time being angry." FilmRise has finally unveiled the trailer for this fun coming-of-age indie film called Marvelous and the Black Hole, which originally premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival. It was one of my faves of last year's fest, and it's opening in select theaters this April after more than a year of waiting. A teenage delinquent teams up with a surly children's party magician to navigate her dysfunctional family and inner demons. Miya Cech stars as Sammy, an angsty teen who gets into all kinds of trouble. But that changes when she meets Margot, played tenderly by Rhea Perlman, a magician who teaches her the power of magic. The cast also includes Keith Powell, Leonardo Nam, and Paulina Lule. I wrote a glowing review of this last year – it's a delightful "film filled with charm and confidence and honesty." I recommend catching it when this releases in spring.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Kate Tsang's Marvelous and the Black Hole, from Variety:
The coming-of-age comedy tells the story of Sammy (Miya Cech), a Chinese American teenager who keeps acting out in the wake of family trouble. She meets Margot (Rhea Perlman), a professional magician who’s old enough to be her grandmother, and the odd couple change each other’s lives for the better. Marvelous and the Black Hole is both written and directed by the up-and-coming filmmaker / animation writer / artist Kate Tsang, making her feature directorial debut with this film after also directing a bunch of short films previously, as well as other production work. Produced by Carolyn Mao. This initially premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival last year (read our review). FilmRise will finally debut Tsang's Marvelous and the Black Hole in select US theaters starting on April 22nd, 2022 this spring. Who's interested in seeing this?
