Comedy comes from tragedy -- and sometimes, from disasters -- and occasionally, from dirty bombs! Watch the trailer for writer-director Todd Berger's off-beat end-of-the-world romp, "It's A Disaster." Julia Stiles, David Cross, America Ferrera, and Erinn Hayes star as a group of brunch-loving suburbanites attending an awkward get-together at a friend's house. After learning that dirty bombs have been ignited in the city, they start to act wildly erratic as the threat of deadly gases becomes increasingly serious. The indie film debuts on VOD on March 5th, or if you prefer, in theaters on April 12th.
Eight friends meet for their monthly "couples brunch." But what starts as an impromptu therapy session / airing of domestic grievances takes a sudden, catastrophic turn when the city falls victim to a mysterious attack. Trapped in the house and unsure of their fates, these seemingly normal people become increasingly unhinged to hilarious, surprising, and revealing results. IT'S A DISASTER is a fast-paced ensemble comedy about the worst brunch ever: the eggs are cold, the tensions are high, and the end is near.
