The film is set to premiere on October 29
Writer and producer Justine Bateman dropped the first trailer for his directorial debut "Violet" -- featuring Olivia Munn as an anxious and increasingly self-critical Hollywood executive.
“What would you do if you weren’t afraid? Justine Bateman’s intriguing and immersive debut film follows Violet Calder (Olivia Munn) as she realizes that she can no longer ignore the daily barrage of self-criticisms (voiced by Justin Theroux) that clouds her life. These self-criticisms cause her to make fear-based decisions and hold her back from the kind of professional, personal, and romantic life she knows she wants. Unsure how to live a life free from that self-doubt, like her childhood friend Red (Luke Bracey), Violet realizes she has no choice but to travel the road that is more frightening to her than the fear that holds her back: Doing everything differently," reads the official synopsis.
Critics are already singing praises of lead actor Olivia Munn, calling it one of the best roles of her career.
"Violet” received its world premiere in March 2021. It will open in theatres on October 29.
