Focus Features has debuted the Kajillionaire trailer and poster, which give you a first look at Miranda July’s new film opening in theaters on September 18, 2020.
Kajillionaire premiered to rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival. The film was written and directed by July, who won multiple awards at the Cannes Film Festival for Me and You and Everyone We Know (buy The Criterion Collection at Amazon) including the Critics Week Grand Prize, the Prix Regards Jeune and the Camera d’Or.
In the profoundly moving and wildly original comedy, con-artists Theresa (Debra Winger) and Robert (Richard Jenkins) have spent 26 years training their only daughter, Old Dolio (Evan Rachel Wood), to swindle, scam, and steal at every opportunity.
During a desperate, hastily conceived heist, they charm a stranger (Gina Rodriguez) into joining their next scam, only to have their entire world turned upside down.
Kajillionaire stars Golden Globe-nominated Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld), Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin), Academy Award-nominated Richard Jenkins (The Shape of Water), and Academy Award-nominated Debra Winger (The Lovers, Terms of Endearment).
The producers are Plan B Entertainment’s Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner, and Youree Henley. Plan B Entertainment’s Brad Pitt, Annapurna’s Megan Ellison, and Jillian Longnecker executive produced.
“In talking to Peter, Jason and Robert, it was obvious that their vision for Kajillionaire’s release came from a really strong gut response to the movie; I’m so excited to collaborate with them,” said Miranda July when Focus acquired the movie.
Focus chairman Peter Kujawski added: “As cinema goers are ever more hungry for truly original experiences, it’s hard to imagine a more unique voice than Miranda’s. Her heightened worlds are full of humor, heartbreak and humanity, and Kajillionaire doses those out in abundance. We couldn’t be more excited to be working with her, along with our good friends at Plan B and Youree to share this experience with audiences everywhere.”
