Ok... so we finally get our first real look at the British drama/comedy starring Brit renaissance man Noel Clarke and Thandie Newton, amongst others, by way of a trailer which I embedded below.

Titled Huge, the film premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival last summer, has played a few others since then, and is only now getting a theatrical release... but just in UK theaters, next month - July 8th, specifically! Will it travel west for those of us here in the States? I dunno... Clarke isn't quite a known "name" here in the USA, although Thandie has some reach - much more-so than Clarke. So, who knows. Depends on how well it's received in the UK probably.

So what's Huge about again?

Synopsis:

Warren and Clark meet when Clark heckles Warren on stage in a crowded comedy club. Their improvised banter goes down a storm, and Warren becomes convinced that destiny has spoken: Warren and Clark are meant to be the biggest comedy double act of all time. There's only one slight problem: they are terrible and can't get a gig. As their frustration mounts, and their efforts to get noticed become increasingly desperate, their bosom-buddy friendship begins to curdle into bitter rivalry. In a world that wants to deny their destiny, Warren and Clark must find a way to stick together if they are to have a chance of making it huge.

Noel Clarke plays "Clark." Johnny Harris plays "Warren."

Thandie Newton plays an entertainment agent from the USA.

Check out the trailer below, along with some stills:
