Focus World released a new trailer for “Mr. Right,” a new film starring Anna Kendrick, Sam Rockwell and Tim Roth. The film is expected to hit theaters and VOD starting in April, but you can get your first look at the action-comedy thanks to Yahoo TV.
The film was written by Max Landis and directed by Paco Cabezas, and features Kendrick in a different role than she has played in the past. The studio describes her character stating that she is, “Hyperactive at the best of times, Martha (Anna Kendrick; Pitch Perfect) has gone full-on manic since her latest breakup. She babbles, parties like a monster, cooks everything in sight – and is looking to do something terrible.”
That’s when Kendrick’s character meets meets Francis (Sam Rockwell; The Way Way Back). To anyone else, Francis’s approach would come across as creepy, but Martha can’t help but be intrigued. They seem a perfect match. The studio went on to describe the characters stating, “She’s bananas, he’s bananas… except he’s a deadly sort of bananas. He’s a professional assassin.”
Francis is a hitman with a cause: he unexpectedly kills the people ordering the hits. Just as Martha begins to realize her new beau wasn’t joking when he said he had to step out for a moment to shoot someone, things start heating up for Francis.
His services are solicited by a dubious client who’s being sought by an equally dubious FBI agent (Tim Roth; Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs). As the bodies pile up, Martha needs to decide whether to flee or join in the mayhem.
