Brie Larson's new Netflix film, Unicorn Store, has a trailer online.
While everyone may still have their eyes on Larson in Captain Marvel, Netflix has acquired the actor's Unicorn Store, which first debuted at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.
The trailer introduces audiences to Kit, a failed artist who is struggling to live in the boring world of adults despite her whimsical, fantastic aspirations. That is until she is introduced to a mysterious store -- aptly named "The Store" -- where a salesman promises to offer her a unicorn.
The film appears to be a fascinating comedy about the difficulties of maturing and growing up. While no actual unicorns appear in the film, it does feature an all-star cast of actors. Most notably, perhaps, to fans of Larson's Carol Danvers, is the presence of Samuel L. Jackson. In a light purple suit.
Of course, it should be noted that this film is not a fantasy or sci-fi epic like Captain Marvel, but a whimsical look at adulthood and maturity. It is also important to note that the film received mixed reviews upon its debut at the Toronto Film Festival. With any luck, this quirky comedy can find its audience.
Unicorn Store is directed by Brie Larson. It stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Joan Cusack, Bradley Whitford, Karan Soni, Mamoudou Athie, Mary Holland and Hamish Linklater. The film is set to debut on Netflix on April 5.
