Sandra Oh and Anne Heche get into an epic, life-altering brawl in the trailer for "Catfight," a pitch-black comedy from cult writer-director Onur Tukel (Applesauce, Summer of Blood).
In the film, which could be described as "Trading Places," but with more bare-knuckle brawling than stock trading, former "Grey's Anatomy" star Sandra Oh plays a successful New York elite. Anne Heche is her old rival from college, who's been struggling in the art scene as an avant-garde New York painter.
When the two women happen to bump into each other during a glitzy dinner party, they do what any two old enemies do -- they viciously knock the crap out of each other. And while the incident sparks a life-long grudge, the two women find their lives unexpectedly reversed. Oh's character wakes up from a coma and discovers her life in financial ruins, while Heche's art career has skyrocketed since the fight. So, what's next for these ladies? Round two ... and possibly three.
"Catfight" also stars Alicia Silverstone and Damian Young with appearances by Dylan Baker and Tituss Burgess. The film is hitting theaters and VOD on March 3rd.
Wealthy wine lover Veronica Salt (Sandra Oh) and struggling outsider artist Ashley Chambers (Anne Heche) were close in college, but haven’t seen each other since. When they find themselves attending the same glitzy birthday party, verbal barbs lead to fisticuffs and an all-out brawl that will keep these two locked in combat for years to come. Outrageous, hilarious, and action-packed, writer-director Onur Tukel's (Applesauce, Summer of Blood, Richard's Wedding) CATFIGHT is a jet-black comedy about two bitter rivals whose grudge match spans a lifetime.
