Brie Larson’s Unicorn Store Official Trailer and Poster has arrived.
Unicorn Store was my most anticipated film to premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. As a long time fan and supporter of Brie Larson, I was so excited to see what she could do as a filmmaker and Unicorn Store did not disappoint. The film is all about believing in yourself, growing up, and understanding how to love and be loved. These themes while often explored in dark and heavy dramas are explored in this film in such a creative, colorful, and uplifting way.
While Larson didn’t write the film, you can tell that she not only connected with Samantha McIntyre’s script but was inspired by it. Larson’s layered performance and superb direction showcase that she really cared about the project and wanted do celebrate McIntyre’s creative storytelling. Unicorn Store proves that Brie Larson is not only a remarkable talent in front of the camera but behind one as well. It was one of my favorite films to come out of TIFF in 2017 and I’ve been anxiously waiting to see it again.
After almost a year and a half of waiting, I am happy to report that Netflix will be releasing Unicorn Store globally on April 5, 2019. Today, the studio has released the official poster for the film (see above) as well as the official trailer. As someone who has already seen the film, the marketing team responsible for this trailer did a great job capturing the essence of the film. It shows the creative aspects but also the heart of the story. I do wish Netflix would have given this film a limited release because I loved seeing it in the theater with an audience but at least now, more audiences can fall in love with this film like I did back in September of 2017
