Drinking-Buddies-PosterWith Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson, Anna Kendrick, and Ron Livingston leading the cast, Drinking Buddies should definitely be on your must-watch list of movies coming out this year.

The film premiered back in the spring at SXSW to very positive early reviews, making me look forward to it all the more. And now Magnolia have released the first trailer over on Apple, giving us a great first look into the upcoming comedy drama.

Kate (Olivia Wilde) and Luke (Jake Johnson) work together at a craft brewery. They have one of those friendships that feels like it could be something more. But Kate is with Chris (Ron Livingston), and Luke is with Jill (Anna Kendrick). Jill wants to know if Luke is ready to talk about marriage. The answer to that question becomes crystal clear when Luke and Kate unexpectedly find themselves alone for a weekend.

DRINKING BUDDIES is written and directed by Joe Swanberg and stars Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson, Anna Kendrick, and Ron Livingston.

Joe Swanberg (V/H/S, Hannah Takes the Stairs) is behind the camera, directing from his own script.

Drinking Buddies will be released on VOD on July 25th, ahead of its theatrical US release date on August 23rd. In the past few weeks, its UK release date has been confirmed for 8th November, and whilst that’s later than I would have hoped, I’m thrilled to know it’s getting a release on our shores.
