This is also a great time to do a deep dive into the career of the talented Miss Johansson, as one of her earliest breakout roles in Terry Zwigoff’s acclaimed 2001 dark comedy Ghost World has been issued on a brand-new Criterion Collection Blu-ray, featuring a sparkling new 4K transfer and new interviews with stars Thora Birch and… Scarlett Johansson!
In Rough Night, five friends from college – played by Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live, Ghostbusters), Jillian Bell (The Night Before, Workaholics), Ilana Glazer (Broad City, The Night Before), and Zoë Kravitz (X-Men: First Class, Mad Max: Fury Road) – reunite when they rent a beach house in Miami for a wild bachelorette weekend that goes completely off the rails. Just when all hope is lost, they realize there’s more to the story than they could’ve ever imagined.
The film also stars Demi Moore (Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle), Colton Haynes (Arrow), Ty Burrell (Modern Family) and Dean Winters (John Wick). Director Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs’ script for the film (originally titled Rock That Body) initially landed on the 2015 Black List of un-produced screenplays.
