Have you ever been in an awkward situation at a party where you just wish the world would end? Well, that's exactly what the story of this new dark comedy, It's a Disaster, explores. David Cross plays a guy with a new girlfriend played by Julia Stiles who takes him to a little party of her long time friends who he's never really met before. In the process of the awkwardness a nearby city is bombed, and the group hunkers down for the end. Things end up getting a little wacky. It look like it will be a fun movie. Here's the official synopsis.
Eight friends meet for their monthly “couples brunch.” But what starts as an impromptu therapy session / airing of domestic grievances takes a sudden, catastrophic turn when the city falls victim to a mysterious attack. Trapped in the house and unsure of their fates, these seemingly normal people become increasingly unhinged to hilarious, surprising, and revealing results.
IT’S A DISASTER is a fast-paced ensemble comedy about the worst brunch ever: the eggs are cold, the tensions are high, and the end is near.
It’s a Disaster hits VOD on March 5th, and will get a limited theatrical release on April 12th.
