Everyone’s saying that Samara Weaving, is making a star turn in Ready or Not! HolaHollywood.com by Dulce Osuna, was there to witness it all. Check out, our Live coverage of “Ready or Not” Premiere that took place at the ArcLight Culver City on Monday night
In the original gory new horror-comedy film Ready or Not, Samara Weaving’s character is marrying into the extremely wealthy Le Domas family, an old-money brood that reigns over a board-game empire from their sprawling, gated estate. The charming bride-to-be also has a unique reason for wanting to get married so badly: Childhood instability has left her in search of a real family. What sets her apart more than anything, however, is that she is not afraid to get her wedding gown a little dirty.
“Are you ready for this?” the groom asks his bride. “Oh fuck no,” she tells him. Truer words were ne’er spoken
As wonderful as Henry Czerny, Andie MacDowell, Adam Brody and the rest of Ready or Not’s ensemble are, Weaving is the glue that holds this film together. It should come as no surprise to anyone who’s seen her work already, but Samara Weaving is unbelievable. There’s no other actor working today who captures the severity of life-or-death situations with a hilarious aspect. She’s funny without ever sacrificing the immediacy and reality of the horror. Every reaction she has in Ready or Not is priceless and revealing. She’s a bonafide horror superstar and this is her breakout, no doubt about it
Directors shared that they pitch the film coincidentally the day after Trump’s election in 2016, directing duo Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett said they were more inspired than ever to create an amusing movie that also featured subtle political undertones.
The dark humor of Ready or Not, is in theaters Aug. 23
