A great first trailer for Joe Swanberg’s upcoming romantic comedy Drinking Buddies has been released. The film centers Luke (Jake Johnson) & Kate (Olivia Wilde), two co-workers at a Chicago Brewery who spend their days drinking at flirting. They’re perfect for each other, except that they’re both in relationships. Drinking Buddies premiered to very positive reviews at SXSW, with many critics praising the film’s humour and performances from all four leads. I definitely can’t wait to check this one out. The film will be released on iTunes on July 25th and opens in theaters on August 23rd.
Kate (Olivia Wilde) and Luke (Jake Johnson) work together at a craft brewery. They have one of those friendships that feels like it could be something more. But Kate is with Chris (Ron Livingston), and Luke is with Jill (Anna Kendrick). Jill wants to know if Luke is ready to talk about marriage. The answer to that question becomes crystal clear when Luke and Kate unexpectedly find themselves alone for a weekend. DRINKING BUDDIES is written and directed by Joe Swanberg and stars Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson, Anna Kendrick, and Ron Livingston.
