What We Do In The Shadows trailer released
Looking like it'll be a massive homegrown hit, here's the first look at new comedy What We Do In The Shadows.
The brand new film from local comedy heavyweights Taikia Waititi and Jemaine Clement comes next month with the release of the trailer of their feature film ‘What We Do In The Shadows’
The soon-to-be cult classic follows a Mockumentry crew as they go inside the lives of four vampires living in a flat in Wellington.
The film is loosely based on a short film the pair created eight years ago. It premiered at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival in January and has since shown to critical acclaim at the Berlin, SXSW and recently the Stany (Kubrick) festival where it picked up the audience award.
Taika Waititi is thrilled to be able to share the trailer with Kiwi fans first.
"We've been working on this film a long time and are excited to finally bring it to New Zealand audiences,” says Waititi. “We made this film for fans of Boy and Flight of the Conchords - we think Kiwis appreciate our style of comedy more than anyone and it's our job to please them. Not physically, that's too hard with our busy schedules and could cause problems in our personal lives. We aim to please them... entertainmentingly. If that's a word. It is now."‘What We Do In The Shadows’ opens with an Auckland premiere on June 6th before being released in mid-June
