‘Big Gold Brick’ Trailer: Mega Fox Scorches In Dark Comedy With Oscar Isaac, Lucy Hale, And Andy Garcia

Much of the buzz surrounding dark comedy Big Gold Brick has centered on Mega Fox and the sizzling black number she wears in the film’s new trailer. Fox has been busier than ever of late, and here she stars alongside one of the best casts she’s seen in a while: Andy Garcia, Lucy Hale, Emory Cohen, and even Oscar Isaac.

Fox plays the unhappy “second wife” to Floyd Deveraux, an enigmatic father-of-two who enlists fledging writer Samuel Liston to write his biography. Hilarity ensues, of course, when the writer’s attempts to do so turn to chaos.

The film was written and directed by Brian Pestos in his directorial debut. This definitely looks weird, with Isaac sporting an eyepatch, some cosmic stuff going on, arson, and more. But there must be something good here to have Isaac on board both in an acting and producing capacity. Kristen Wiig is listed as a producer, as well.

Big Gold Brick opens in theaters and digital on February 25th 2022.

Big Gold Brick recounts the story of fledgling writer Samuel Liston and his experiences with Floyd Deveraux, the enigmatic middle-aged father of two who enlists Samuel to write his biography. But the circumstances that lead up to this arrangement in the first place are quite astonishing—and efforts to write the biography are quickly stymied by ensuing chaos in this darkly comedic, genre-bending film.
