“The way I’ve always been doing things just doesn’t work now.” Relativity Media has debuted a trailer for an indie film titled Violet, which first premiered at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival earlier this year. Violet marks the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Justine Bateman, who has been working in Hollywood and tells many of her own stories in this film. It is a brutal look at life in the industry, and how shitty so many people can be. But it’s also a brutal look at how shitty we can be to ourselves. Olivia Munn stars as Violet, who realizes her entire life is built on fear-based decisions, and must do things differently to become her true self. The film features Justin Theroux as “the voice” inside of her head, telling her how awful she is. There’s also on-screen text for three layers showing how she’s overwhelmed with anxiety all the time. The cast includes Luke Bracey, Dennis Boutsikaris, Erica Ash, and Zach Gordon.
Netflix has released a behind-the-scenes blooper reel for their recently-release rom-com Holidate, led by Emma Roberts and Luke Bracey. We’ve added the screen captures to the gallery and here you can watch the video.
