Samuel Goldwyn Films and Destination Films have just released the official poster art and trailer for their upcoming film ELEKTRA LUXX. The film is a new comedy from writer/director Sebastian Gutierrez. Carla Gugino stars as Elektra Luxx, a woman attempting to transition from adult film star to functioning adult. Try as she might to reinvent her life, her colorful and questionable past constantly gets in the way. Check out the trailer and artwork below!
ELEKTRA LUXX features an amazing supporting cast, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception, (500) Days of Summer), Emmanuelle Chriqui (“Entourage”), Adrianne Palicki (“Friday Night Lights”), Timothy Olyphant (“Justified”), Justin Kirk (“Weeds”), Vincent Kartheiser (“Mad Men”), Marley Shelton (Grindhouse, the upcoming Scream 4), Malin Akerman (Happythankyoumoreplease, Watchmen), and features original music by Robyn Hitchcock. The film premiered at SXSW last year where it received rave reviews. Moviefone’s Cinematical called it “a fantastic movie with an off-the-wall sensibility and great performances.”
Synopsis: Recently retired from the adult film industry, superstar Elektra Luxx (Carla Gugino) is pregnant with the child of late rock star Nick Chapel. She is trying to make ends meet by teaching a community college sex education class aimed at housewives when a figure from her past, flight attendant Cora (Marley Shelton), approaches her with a proposition. In exchange for the (stolen) lyrics to Nick Chapel’s last record, all of which is about Elektra, Cora needs Elektra to seduce her fiancée. Elektra reluctantly agrees to do this favor, setting in motion a series of hilarious events which will see her come face to face with detectives, sex bloggers, emotionally unstable neighbors and the Virgin Mary herself as she wrestles with the prospect of motherhood and tries to become a person of substance.
