Late Night (2019, W: Kaling / D: Ganatra) S: Emma Thompson, Mindy Kaling



Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is a pioneer and legendary host on the late-night talk-show circuit. When she’s accused of being a “woman who hates women,” she puts affirmative action on the to-do list, and—presto!—Molly (Mindy Kaling) is hired as the one woman in Katherine’s all-male writers’ room. But Molly might be too little too late, as the formidable Katherine also faces the reality of low ratings and a network that wants to replace her. Molly, wanting to prove she’s not simply a diversity hire who’s disrupting the comfort of the brotherhood, is determined to help Katherine by revitalizing her show and career—and possibly effect even bigger change at the same time. LATE NIGHT is in theaters June 7th.

Seems a bit steep, frankly.

Yes, somewhat. I think this is the highest they've gone. For comparison, they spent $12mil on The Big Sick.

I guess they're hoping for similar returns by capitalizing on that one? I'm just not getting the same level of funny in that trailer, though. Feels kinda tame.

Feels like a season 1 recap to a 10 episode tv series.

That's exactly what crossed my mind. Feels more like a TV series.

I can't look at Mindy Kaling since she fucked with her mouth. She looks beyond stupid.

A woman talk-show host? A bit unbelievable that she could lift that heavy microphone.
