First Trailer for ‘Red Rocket’ Teases Sean Baker’s New Movie

The first trailer for Sean Baker’s Red Rocket is finally here! In his latest film since 2017’s The Florida Project and with a script written by Baker and Chris Bergoch, the film stars Simon Rex, Suzanna Son, Brenda Deiss, Bree Elrod, Ethan Darbone, Brittney Rodriguez, and Judy Hill. In our New York Film Festival review, editor-in-chief Joey Magidson called the film the best of the festival and “one of the crowning achievements of 2021.” You can read his review by clicking this link. Here’s the official plot synopsis from A24:

“The audacious new film from writer-director Sean Baker (The Florida Project, Tangerine), starring Simon Rex in a magnetic, live-wire performance, Red Rocket is a darkly funny and humane portrait of a uniquely American hustler and a hometown that barely tolerates him.”

You can watch the film’s trailer below and see the film exclusively in theatres on December 3rd:
