Those with their ear to the ground likely already know the name of director Álex de la Iglesia. He's the helmer behind the somewhat insane "The Last Circus," which made some big waves on the festival circuit in 2010, and his follow-up is no less unique. "As Luck Would Have It" features Salma Hayek in a co-starring role in a tale that uses an extraordinary situation to explore the current state of the news and entertainment media.

As Luck Would Have It, Salma Hayek

Those with their ear to the ground likely already know the name of director Álex de la Iglesia. He's the helmer behind the somewhat insane "The Last Circus," which made some big waves on the festival circuit in 2010, and his follow-up is no less unique. "As Luck Would Have It" features Salma Hayek in a co-starring role in a tale that uses an extraordinary situation to explore the current state of the news and entertainment media.

Spanish comic actor José Mota co-stars as Roberto, a family man struggling to make ends meet for his family. However, a freak accident ironically gives him the chance of a lifetime, with the incident sparking a major media firestorm that's so big he lands an agent to help navigate his way through the hype and attention. But at what cost will this fame bring? In this exclusive clip from the movie, we find out exactly what predicament Roberto finds himself, and his wife Luisa (played by Hayek) has a perfectly natural response to this discovery.

"Mordantly funny and sharp as a razor," is what we said about the movie in our review from the Tribeca Film Festival last year, and if you the like the taste you get below, you don't have to wait long to see the whole thing. "As Luck Would Have It" opens in select theaters and on Cable VOD/Digital outlets – including SundanceNow – starting today, Friday, Feb 1st.
