The first trailer for Oscar-winning Juno and Young Adult scribe Diablo Cody’s directorial debut Paradise has landed online. Formerly titled Lamb of God, the film centers on a young woman (Julianne Hough) who loses her faith after a plane crash and decides to go to Las Vegas to experience the wild side of life. Once there, she encounters a couple of unlikely companions—a bartender (Russell Brand) and a card dealer (Octavia Spencer)—who aid her on her “journey of sin.” Though this trailer doesn’t really tease anything too spectacular, Cody appears to have crafted an entertaining and heartfelt little dramedy for her first foray behind the camera.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Nick Offerman and Holly Hunter. Paradise will be available VOD on DirecTV starting August 8th before hitting theaters on October 18th.
