A new trailer has been released for the upcoming film Breaking News In Yuba County, which stars Allison Janney as Sue Buttons, a housewife whose husband has gone missing, as well as Awkwafina, Mila Kunis, Regina Hall, Wanda Sykes, Jimmi Simpson, Juliette Lewis, Matthew Modine, Ellen Barkin, Samira Wiley, Bridget Everett, Clifton Collins, Jr., and Keong Sim.
Here’s the synopsis:
After her husband goes missing, Sue Buttons (Allison Janney), an underappreciated suburban wife, gets a taste of being a local celebrity as she embarks on a city-wide search in Yuba County to find him. In an effort to prolong her newfound fame, she stumbles into hilarious hijinks as her world turns upside down, dodging a wanna-be mobster (Awkwafina), a relentless local policewoman (Regina Hall), her half-sister (Mila Kunis) a local news reporter desperate for a story, and her husband’s dead-beat brother (Jimmi Simpson), who all set out to uncover the truth behind the disappearance. A dark and twisted comedy that explores the outrageous lengths some will go to in order to garner some much-desired attention.
This film is written by Amanda Idoko and directed by Tate Taylor, who previously directed Pretty Ugly People, The Help, Get on Up, The Girl on the Train, and Ma. The film was produced by Jake Gyllenhaal, Tate Taylor, John Norris, Franklin Leonard, and Riva Marker. This looks like a hilarious and ridiculous story with such a great cast. I can’t wait to see it. Check out the trailer below, and watch Breaking News in Yuba County in select theaters and on VOD on February 12th.
