I’ve got a fun trailer for a charming-looking film titled Ride the Eagle. The film stars Jake Johnson (New Girl, Jurassic World) who ends up reconnecting with his dead mom through a collection of VHS tapes that she left behind for him. His mom is played by Susan Sarandon, and J.K. Simmons plays her old lover in the story.
In the film, “When Leif’s estranged mother Honey dies, she leaves him a ‘conditional inheritance.’ Before he can move into her picturesque Yosemite cabin, he has to complete her elaborate and sometimes dubious to-do list. Leif and Nora, his canine BFF, step into Honey’s wild world as she tries to make amends from beyond the grave in this hilarious and heartfelt comedy.” D’Arcy Carden (The Good Place) plays Leif’s ex-girlfriend in the movie, “the one who got away.”
Ride the Eagle was directed by Trent O’Donnell, and it arrives on digital and in theaters on July 30, 2021.
