Sony’s TriStar Pictures has revealed a new international trailer for the upcoming comedy-drama Ricki and the Flash, which you can check out below!
Directed by the Academy Award winning Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia) and scripted by fellow Oscar winner Diablo Cody (Young Adult, Juno), Ricki and the Flash sees three time Oscar winner Meryl Streep taking on a whole new gig as a hard-rocking singer/guitarist. The original film, loaded with live musical performances, stars Streep as Ricki Rendazzo, a guitar heroine who made a world of mistakes as she followed her dreams of rock-and-roll stardom. Returning home, Ricki gets a shot at redemption and a chance to make things right as she faces the music with her family.
Streep stars opposite her real-life daughter, Mamie Gummer, as well as Rick Springfield, who portrays a Flash member in love with Ricki, Kevin Kline, who stars as Ricki’s ex-husband, and Audra McDonald, who plays Kline’s new wife.
Ricki and the Flash is produced by Cody, Marc Platt, Mason Novick and Gary Goetzman and executive produced by Ron Bozman, Adam Siegel, Lorene Scafaria and Ben Waisbren, and opens everywhere August 7.
