It’s an unlikely friendship in new The Upside TV spot
STX Entertainment has released a new TV spot for director Neil Burger’s forthcoming film The Upside, starring Bryan Cranston as Phillip Lacasse, a Park Avenue billionaire, and Kevin Hart as Dell Scott, a felon who will become Phillip’s caretaker. The heartwarming film will center on the unlikely friendship that the two will form throughout their time together. It is scheduled to hit theaters this Friday, January 11. You can check out the spot in the post below!
Based on a true story, Phillip and Dell form an unlikely bond, bridging their differences and gaining invaluable wisdom in the process, giving each man a renewed sense of passion for all of life’s possibilities. Nicole Kidman (Lion, The Beguiled) also stars along with Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife) and Aja Naomi King (How to Get Away with Murder). Neil Burger (Divergent) directed the film, while Jason Blumenthal (Southpaw), Todd Black (Fences), and Harvey Weinstein produced the project that filmed in Philadelphia back in March.
Written by Jon Hartmere, the English-language remake reinvents the 2011 French classic, The Intouchables, that took the world by storm and went on to gross over $400 million worldwide – making it the second-highest grossing non-English language film of all time. The Upside is produced by Escape Artists. Jason Blumenthal, Todd Black, and Steve Tisch are set to co-produce.
