[Trailer] Justin Long Takes The Trip Of A Lifetime In Sci-Fi Comedy 'The Wave'

The Wave Trailer Gille Klabin Justin Long

Gille Klabin's psychedelic sci-fi adventure-comedy The Wave will hit theaters and VOD on January 17th, 2020 courtesy of Epic Pictures, and today we have the film's official trailer to share with you.

Justin Long (Jeepers Creepers, Drag Me To Hell, Tusk) and Donald Faison ("Scrubs", Clueless) lead the unique modern-day parable that follows Frank (Long), an opportunistic insurance lawyer, who thinks he’s in for the time of his life when he goes out on the town to celebrate an upcoming promotion with his co-worker, Jeff (Faison). But their night takes a turn for the bizarre when Frank is dosed with a hallucinogen that completely alters his perception of the world, taking him on a psychedelic quest through board meetings, nightclubs, shootouts, and alternate dimensions. As Frank ping-pongs between reality and fantasy, he finds himself on a mission to find a missing girl, himself… and his wallet.

Personally, I need films like this to offer myself a bit of a break from all of the horror movies I watch. Kind of like a palate cleanser from all the blood and guts that sear my retinas.

The film's cast is rounded out by Tommy Flanagan ("Sons of Anarchy", Sin City), Sheila Vand (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, the upcoming "Snowpiercer" series), Katia Winter (The Catch, "Sleepy Hollow" series) and Ronnie Gene Blevins (Joe, "True Detective").

The Wave is the feature directorial debut from Klabin, and is written and produced by Carl W. Lucas. The film was produced by Robert Dehn and Monte Young, and produced for EchoWolf by Lucas and Joshua Bunting. It was co-produced by Andrew P. Aguilar and Seth Farley, with Jason Bender, Suzanne Niedland and Kevin P. Towler as executive producers, and Brian Ankrum and Nia Kingsley as associate producers.
