Less than a month after joining forces in “Captain Marvel,” Brie Larson and repeat Stern Show guest Samuel L. Jackson are teaming up again. This time, instead of defending the Earth from intergalactic marauders, the duo takes on something even more fantastical: unicorns.
Netflix has released the trailer for “Unicorn Store,” a comedy starring Larson as an eccentric, unicorn-obsessed painter who washes out of art school and moves back home with her parents. Her luck improves, however, after receiving a mysterious invitation to the titular unicorn store run by a colorfully dressed salesman (Jackson) who it seems might actually be in the business of selling unicorns. But first she’ll need to prove she can handle the responsibility.
“You have come to the store and I am the Salesman,” Jackson tells her in the clip. “Behold, we sell what you need. … If I have one brought here, I have to know if you’re for real.”
Serving as Larson’s directorial debut, “Unicorn Store” marks the third time the Oscar-winning actress has starred alongside Jackson, following both “Captain Marvel” and “Kong: Skull Island.” The film, which premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, co-stars Joan Cusack (“Shameless”), Bradley Whitford (“Get Out”), and Karan Soni (“Deadpool”).
“Unicorn Store” arrives April 5 on Netflix.
