I know what you’re thinking: “That’s not what the regulation Sex Scouts uniform looks like! Couldn’t this production have done any research?!” And you’d be right, but you’d be missing the point.
In Elektra Luxx, Carla Gugino reprises her role as the titular porn star who has given up the business for baby. And, yes, it’s hers.
The funny, sexy, strange, soap-y comedy was written and directed by Sebastian Gutierrez as the meat of a Women in Trouble and Women in Ecstasy trilogy. It’s got the same heart, ovaries and potty mouth as the first, and it now has more Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a sex blogger.
Check out the surprisingly not-red-band trailer for yourself:
This may seem odd, but the trailer feels more mainstream than it could have been. It feels like a standard sex comedy done with a little flair and maturity. Not much more maturity, but a bit more than horny college kids trying to see breasts for the first time.
The ensemble cast is huge: Gugino and Gordon-Levitt are joined by Adrianne Palicki, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Malin Ackerman, Justin Kirk, Timothy Olyphant, Marley Shelton, Alicia Silverstone, and Julianne Moore.
