Exclusive: Carla Gugino Spells and Sells ‘Trouble’

By  · Published on August 26th, 2009


Earlier in the year Neil and I raved about a movie that hit SxSW like a blonde bombshell and threatened to disrupt civilization as we know it. Then a little while later, I rejoiced that it was getting distribution because I predict more than a few people will really dig just how crazy and wonderful Women in Trouble truly is.

Now, with this teaser advert FSR has managed to procure, I’m reminded yet again that the movie is coming to a theater near you (and me) with all of its foul-mouthed, over-the-top ridiculousness and a whole slew of beautiful women who get into a lot of trouble.

The picture of Carla Gugino in the ad also seems to be staring into my very soul and begging me to propose marriage to her. Or just to go see her movie. Clicking on the image makes it much, much bigger:

Not too shabby. Kind of a cool little advertisement that definitely relies heavily on the beauty of the star to draw you to it. I think a few creative directors will shudder at the thought of three different fonts on a single ad, but I always love seeing the “Freaks and Geeks” font used for other projects.

Hopefully we’ll be hearing more and more about the flick as we get closer to November. A full scale trailer wouldn’t be out of the question, and so far I’ve had trouble putting into words the absurdity and cleavage-levels present in this thing so hopefully we’ll get some moving pictures to tell a few thousand words. But in the mean time, I’ll let Carla Gugino (as Elektra Luxx) explain why hers is the best-selling celebrity vagina on the market:

Written and directed by Sebastian Guiterrez, Women in Trouble features the incredible talent of Carla Gugino, Connie Britton, Adrianne Palicki, Marley Shelton, Cameron Richardson, Emmanuelle Chriqui, and there are even a few men involved (like Josh Brolin and Joseph Gordon-Levitt). It hits theaters in November.

What do you think?
