That’s the supposition Winston Duke’s Will is working on within the Sony Photos Classics movie’s first full trailer, which finds him welcoming unborn souls, or, quite, potential unborn souls, to his lonely little home in the course of existential nowhere. In the event you had been pondering the film by director Edson Oda, which premiered at Sundance this yr, had the texture of Defending Your Life sans the romantic-comedy parts, you’re solely half proper. In keeping with the film’s IMDb description, Will finds himself shaken by the arrival of Zazie Beetz’s Emma, “a candidate who is not like the others, forcing him to turn within and reckon with his own tumultuous past.”
Sure, Will says he’s merely a “cog in a machine” quite than the person in cost, and sure, it appears unlikely they’ll find yourself collectively, however we’re getting sturdy “rom-com starring God” vibes from the trailer, and we don’t hate it. Under no circumstances. With Invoice Skarsgard, Benedict Wong, Tony Hale, David Rysdahl, Arianna Ortiz, Perry Smith, and Geraldine Hughes rounding out the forged, 9 Days is, at the very least on this particular day, scheduled to debut in theaters January 22.
