“Late Night” Gets Final Trailer Ahead of National Expansion

After an impressive premiere at Sundance last January, the Mindy Kaling penned Late Night is finally making its presence known - and we couldn’t be more on board.

To celebrate the film’s national expansion this Friday distributor Amazon Studios has released a final trailer (complete with audience reactions) for our viewing pleasure.  And while it still doesn’t grasp the near perfection that the film emulates, we’ll take anything we can get at this point.

Late Night centers around legendary talk-show host Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson).  Though a pioneer in the field she has seen a steady decline in viewers, prompting her to make a “diversity hire” to shake things up in her writers’ room.  Enter Molly Patel (Kaling), a chemical plant efficiency expert and life long fan of Katherine’s who will fight the grain to get her idol back in the network’s good graces.

Late Night is currently playing in select markets and will open nationally June 14.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
