Where would one hope to find a unicorn? At the Unicorn Store, of course.
That’s what Brie Larson says in the trailer for her upcoming Netflix film, “Unicorn Store,” which she also directed. And who better to purchase a unicorn from than Larson’s “Captain Marvel” co-star, Samuel L. Jackson, dressed all in pink and with a massive afro?
“You need to love yourself,” Jackson tells Larson’s character, Kit. “Get out there and show us what you can do.”
Larson made her directorial debut on the comedy-fantasy about a lonely 20-something who is kicked out of school and forced to take a boring temp job and move back in with her parents. But her life changes when she discovers a mysterious store that offers to give her childlike heart its greatest desire. In her case, that’s a unicorn.
Samantha McIntyre wrote the screenplay, and “Unicorn Store” also stars Joan Cusack and Bradley Whitford. The film first premiered at Toronto in 2017, and it was acquired recently by Netflix, who will now release it globally on their streaming service on April 5.
