Watch the trailer for Neil Burger’s The Upside
STX Entertainment dropped the trailer for the heartwarming film The Upside, which shows the unlikely friendship between Park Avenue billionaire Phillip Lacasse (Bryan Cranston) and his felon caretaker (Kevin Hart), who landed the job to help keep him out of prison. You can check out the trailer 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. The film is expected to hit theaters sometime in 2019.
