Without necessarily reflecting on its quality, it sometimes takes a while for a movie to come down the distribution pipeline. Companies need time to put plans for a movie together, come up with marketing strategies and find the right release date, which sometimes means that films end up meeting the general public quite some time after festival audiences catch them. It shouldn’t be taken as a negative — both “Crash” and “The Hurt Locker” won Best Picture at the Oscars over a year after their world premieres at TIFF and Venice respectively — and as such, we have some faith in “Vincent-N-Roxxy.”
It’s exactly a year since the film premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, but it’s finally set to hit theaters in a month or so, and while that delay might give some pause, the film looks pretty decent from the trailer that Vertical Entertainment just premiered. It stars Emile Hirsch and Zoe Kravitz as the title characters, who meet when he saves her from a violent attack, forcing the pair on the run, Bonnie & Clyde-style.
Emory Cohen, Zoey Deutch, Kid Cudi and Jason Mitchell all also star in the film from former producer Gary Michael Schultz (which is scored by Questlove), which is a pretty solid line-up, and reviews from the festival last year were decent, so if you’re in the mood for this sort of thing, it could hit the spot nicely. We might have been more psyched for it before Hirsch choked a woman at the Sundance Film Festival for reportedly refusing his advances, ourselves, but there we go. The film opens on June 2nd: watch the trailer above or below.
