Magnolia Pictures acquired release rights to Julie Delpy's dramedy sequel to the absolutely hilarious 2 Days In Paris, titled 2 Days In New York, which she stars in along with Chris Rock - a film we've covered quite a bit, so I'll just skip to the new stuff... the official trailer and poster have surfaced, and the film now has a release date... or rather dates.

I saw the film earlier this year and enjoyed it, calling it familiar (as in, it's very much like the first one in terms of its style and content), but still very much engaging. It's also brief, which I think is wise for a film of this nature. But I had a good time. I'd watch it again.

If you loved the first film, you'll definitely dig this one as well.

And I should say that Chris Rock definitely holds his own; I think he excels in this kind of seemingly unscripted (although it was mostly scripted) organically-created kind of setting, where he can almost essentially just be as close to a version of his real self as possible.

True to Magnolia's strategy, the film will be released first on VOD (iTunes exclusively) on July 6th, before heading to theaters on August 10th.

The official synopsis reads:

Marion and Mingus live cozily--perhaps too cozily--with their cat and two young children from previous relationships. However, when Marion's jolly father (played by director Delpy's real-life dad), her oversexed sister, and her sister's outrageous boyfriend unceremoniously descend upon them for a visit, it initiates two unforgettable days that will test Marion and Mingus's relationship. With their unwitting racism and sexual frankness, the French triumvirate hilariously has no boundaries or filters... and no person is left unscathed in its wake.

Malinda Williams and Talen Riley co-star.

Immediately below is the first full trailer; underneath you'll find the poster:

    I remember my first time in Europe, I saw some odd couplings. Old white men and younger Black women, old white women with younger black men, a few older black men and younger white women. Gay and straight. I once saw a man dressed as his own couple. Almost nothing phases me anymore.

    I know an intraracial couple can look weird. Im just saying Chris specifically looks weird in this interracial couple to me. Noone else might feel that way. I expect all his romantic interests to be black for some reason.

    But the term, heterosexual (accept in some circles. Lol) is rarely used as a pejorative where as "interracial" has... Of course, I'm not blind to the fact that they look different... it was your comment that "Chris Rock looked odd in that interracial couple" that moved me to respond. Woody Allen and Diane Keaton looked odd together and they were of the same complexion.

    What is sick about pointing out that two individuals are of different races? Calling them interracial is as true as calling them an heterosexual couple. It is a characteristic of their union.

    One can choose to be mired to the malaise of the masses or move onward and upward in thought, word and deed in the time we're given.

    It looks really good... and@Black Police... the term interracial- really? Let's move on.

  • the black police | June 15, 2012 12:46 AM

    But they we cant neglect the fact that they are of different races...

    Ooohhh, right, we are living in that post-racial, or even, raceless utopia. "I dont see color when I see you"

    Black Police, didn't you know? It's nice wise to mention anything about **whispering**--> "interracial relationships". Hush now... can't we all just get along as one big happy family? White folks luv us and we should love them back, right? Look at Chris Rock as just a man, not a black man. That woman... she's just a woman, not a white woman.

  • the black police | June 15, 2012 12:01 AM

    I have nothing against interracial relationships. What are we calling them these days?

  • Laura | June 14, 2012 10:51 PMReply

    Loved the first. Will definitely check out this one. I love the music.

  • Nadine | June 14, 2012 9:53 PMReply

    I don't know why I like it, but I do... I was intrigued re: this movie a number of months ago. Somehow, it looks like a New York I can recognize which I appreciate; also Chris' subdued, but recognizable self make me want to watch (even though he can drive me crazy at times). I'll probably get it On Demand, July 6th.

    I think I like. Chris looks odd in that interracial couple though.
