One of our very favorite festival hits from last year, Todd Berger‘s side-splitting It’s A Disaster, is due to hit theaters (and VOD for all you shut-ins out there) in the next few weeks, so we’re pleased the production has debuted a new trailer.
Berger’s film centers on the domestic catastrophe that is brunch amongst couple friends. Kidding. Well, sort of. Starring a large ensemble (including Julia Stiles, David Cross, America Ferrera, and many more), It’s A Disaster starts off with a tough enough situation – Stiles’ character is tasked with bringing her new paramour, played by Cross, to meet all of her friends at their traditional Sunday brunch – and then ratchets that up significantly. Oh, how significantly? Apocalyptic significantly. With an apparent worldwide disaster knocking on their front door (along with Berger himself, who makes an amusing cameo), the group must begin to deal with all kinds of fallout (emotional and possibly nuclear). It’s the funniest apocalyptic film you’ll see all year.
After the break, ready your mimosas for the new It’s A Disaster trailer.
It’s A Disaster will be available on VOD on March 5th, with an April 12th theatrical release to follow. [/Film]
