Exclusive: U.S. Poster For '2 Days In New York' Starring Julie Delpy & Chris Rock

It might sound like hyperbole, but it's true: writer, actress and director Julie Delpy deserves to be among the first names that come to mind in the comedy-of-manners canon, among the likes of Woody Allen, Whit Stillman and Noah Baumbach. An unlikely sequel to the already underrated "2 Days In Paris," Delpy's latest, "2 Days In New York," picks up with her hyper-neurotic Marion character who has broken up with Jack (Adam Goldberg from the first film) and now lives in New York with their child and her new American boyfriend Mingus (Chris Rock). But when her eccentric father (played by Albert Delpy, her real-life father), her sister Rose and an ex-boyfriend decide to come visit and stay in the couple's cramped New York apartment, their cultural and language barriers make for a hilarious clash of personalities and personal spaces.

2 Days In New York

It might sound like hyperbole, but it's true: writer, actress and director Julie Delpy deserves to be among the first names that come to mind in the comedy-of-manners canon, among the likes of Woody Allen, Whit Stillman and Noah Baumbach. An unlikely sequel to the already underrated "2 Days In Paris," Delpy's latest, "2 Days In New York," picks up with her hyper-neurotic Marion character who has broken up with Jack (Adam Goldberg from the first film) and now lives in New York with their child and her new American boyfriend Mingus (Chris Rock). But when her eccentric father (played by Albert Delpy, her real-life father), her sister Rose and an ex-boyfriend decide to come visit and stay in the couple's cramped New York apartment, their cultural and language barriers make for a hilarious clash of personalities and personal spaces.

Easily one of the funniest comedies and most enjoyable films this writer has seen this year (truly, the film is hilarious and possesses a Robert Altman-like nimbleness to its ensemble screaming matches), we're happy to present the North American poster for "2 Days In New York." Oh, and there's a righteously good cameo from an actor/musician/director in the film that's worth the price of admission alone. And note: Chris Rock plays an excellent straight man in the picture. We can't say enough good things about the film.

Here's the official synopsis: 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. Directed and cowritten by Delpy, 2 Days in New York is a deliciously witty romp. One of the pleasures of this follow-up film to 2 Days in Paris is the addition of Chris Rock, who—amid the Gallic mayhem—convincingly plays the straight man as Marion’s hipster American boyfriend. With great skill and energy, Delpy heightens cultural differences to comedic extremes but also manages to show that sometimes change is the best solution to a relationship that’s been pushed to its limit.

"2 Days In New York" premieres on VOD July 6th and opens in theaters August 10th.
