Anna Kendrick & Sam Rockwell

Focus Features has released the first trailer for the hitman comedy Mr. Right, starring Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick.

Written by Max Landis and directed by Paco Cabezas, the film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last fall. Also starring Tim Roth, James Ransone, Anson Mount, Michael Eklund, and The RZA, Mr. Right opens in theaters and on VOD and Digital HD on April 8.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

I think Rockwell deserves a bigger spotlight. The whole cast looks great, though.

Hyperactive at the best of times, Martha (Kendrick) has gone full-on manic since her latest breakup. She babbles, she parties like a monster, she cooks everything in sight — and then she meets Francis (Rockwell), who asks her out within seconds of meeting her. He should be creepy, but he’s charming. (Martha’s roommate calls him “Sexy Rain Man.”) They seem a perfect match: she’s bananas, he’s bananas. Except he’s a deadly sort of bananas.

Francis is a hitman with a difference: he kills the people who hire him to kill people. Just as Martha begins to realize her new beau wasn’t joking when he said he had to step out for a moment to shoot someone, things start heating up for Francis. His services are solicited by a dubious client who’s being sought by an equally dubious FBI agent (Tim Roth). As the bodies pile up, Martha needs to decide whether to flee or join in the mayhem.
