Saban Films has officially set a release date for Pixie in the US — March 5th — in both theaters and On Demand.
From Screen Rant:
The first trailer and poster for the US release of Pixie shows off Alec Baldwin’s comic turn as a deadly Irish gangster priest. The veteran actor, who recently revealed he was thrilled to lose his SNL job playing Donald Trump, is the biggest name in a strong cast for the British crime comedy. Olivia Cooke (Ready Player One, Sound of Metal), Ben Hardy (X-Men: Apocalypse, Bohemian Rhapsody), and Colm Meaney (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) round out the ensemble.
Pixie is directed by Barnaby Thompson, best known as a producer on a number of 1990s comedies, including Wayne’s World (the cast of whom just reunited for an Uber Eats Super Bowl ad), Wayne’s World 2, and Coneheads, from a script by his son, Preston Thompson. Set in Ireland, Pixie is billed as a crime caper, following the titular Pixie (Cooke) on the run with a pair of hapless wannabe criminals (Hardy and Daryl McCormack) after a heist gone wrong. What ensues is an escape across Ireland, with the trio pursued by a number of gangsters, one of whom is a vengeful, deadly priest.
In an exclusive, Screen Rant has the first US trailer and poster for Pixie, showing off Baldwin’s thick Irish accent and menacing turn as Father Hector McGrath. The trailer also shows off the movie’s anarchic approach to comedy, and a number of action set pieces that tease some intense encounters between the clergy and the heroes. The humor is very Irish, with sarcasm and dry wit dominating, making Pixie very much a product of its country of origin. The Pixie trailer also reveals a US release in theaters, digital and on demand on March 5. You can watch the full trailer and see the poster below:
