The first official trailer for Arizona has been released. The story is set in the middle of the 2009 housing crisis in Arizona, where a single mother and struggling realtor’s (Rosemarie DeWitt) is upended when she witnesses a murder. The film also stars Danny McBride (in the lead) and Luke Wilson.
I had not heard of this movie until the first trailer popped up on my page early yesterday. It comes to no surprise as it looks to be an indie film backing with no giant names attached to it, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be any good. Dark comedies are a very hard genre to capture, which is why we see so little of them. But I must say, if Danny McBride is able to stay out of the trend he typically gets in with roles, Arizona has a really good shot at being one of the better dark comedies. I really like the cast, especially DeWitt in the co-lead, but those supporting both McBride and DeWitt are all going to bring something completely different to the story. Crossing my fingers for this one!
