Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson clearly had a great time producing Captain Marvel and they are back in the Unicorn Store for a completely different film. Not only does Larson play stars in comedy, she also staged and produced them. In the Netflix movie, on April 5 of the same day Shazam! it comes to the theaters – a woman named Kit receives a mysterious invitation that would fulfill her childhood dreams. Samuel L. Jackson's character, The Salesman, invites her to The Store where "what you need" is sold. For Kit this is a unicorn. Watch the Trailer:
Unicorn Store has a kind of Willy Wonka / Stephen King's Needful Things vibe, at least from the trailer. There are also Joan Cusack, Bradley Whitford, Karan Soni, Mamoudou Athie, Mary Holland and Hamish Linklater.
Unicorn Store marks the debut of Brie Larson. The comedy was shot in late 2016 before Captain Marvel and screened at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2017. It's likely to receive a prominent release on Netflix now. A dollar movie with both Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson.
Brie Larson became world famous as Captain Marvel, who is about to head the MCU, but she got the role of her best Oscar-actor for Room . And some of us have loved her since she played Toni Collette's troubled teenager in the Showtime series United States of Tara . This Unicorn Store role as a whimsical, immature, lost soul seems to be a stark contrast to Larson's serious strength as Carol Danvers in the hit Marvel movie. It will be refreshing to see her in a comedy in the middle of her successive MCU films.
Of course, the fans already enjoy making jokes about how this movie looks like Captain Marvel on drugs, and Thanos must have really messed up with reality to Carol Danvers and Nick Fury in this unicorn movie. There are also many geese jokes wondering where the Flemish Cat might be in this movie. Because it is not a real teammup without the real hero.
Unicorn Store written by Samantha McIntyre, currently has a rating of 68% on Rotten Tomatoes, but that's only from 19 reviews. Fans can judge the film for themselves when the stream airs on April 5th. Additional films will be directed to Netflix in April. Do not forget all the incredible movies that will hit theaters in April, such as another one with Brie Larson (Avengers) : Endgame .
