Olivia-Wilde-and-Sam-Rockwell-in-Better-Living-Through-ChemistryBetter Living Through Chemistry is a movie I’ve been looking forward to for a long time.

The script made it onto the Black List a few years back, and has been on its path to distribution for a good few years now. The finishing line is very much now in sight, and along with the announcement that Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired the US theatrical rights, so too arrives the first image of leading duo Sam Rockwell and Olivia Wilde from the film.

A straight-laced pharmacist’s uneventful life spirals out of control when he stars an affair with a trophy wife customer who takes him on a joyride involving sex, drugs and possibly murder.

Rockwell of course stars as that straight-laced pharmacist, with Wilde taking the female lead that leads his life on a downward spiral. Starring alongside them will be the ever-brilliant Michelle Monaghan, Ray Liotta, Jane Fonda, Ben Schwartz, Norbert Leo Butz, and Ken Howard.

Geoff Moore and David Posamentier make their feature debuts as both writers and directors, and I for one see this as one of the year’s most hugely promising films.

Samuel Goldwyn Films will be distributing the film in US cinemas in the spring, with Universal taking the home entertainment rights, as well as Universal’s international arms distributing on all platforms in the UK, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, South America, and a handful of Eastern European and Asian territories.

Better Living Through Chemistry is set to be released in the US on March 14th. No word yet on a UK release date, but we’ll hope it won’t be far behind.
