In The Brass Teapot, John (Michael Angarano) and Alice (Juno Temple) are a small town couple in their ‘20s, who are very much in love, but also very broke.  Struggling to make ends meet while their friends enjoy the good life, a mysterious brass teapot in a roadside antique shop is seemingly the answer to all of their problems, when it starts spitting money out of its spout.  But, as its demands for appeasement become darker and darker, its existence is a reminder that you should always be careful what you wish for.

At the film’s press day, actress Juno Temple spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about making a grown-up fairytale, finding the balance between fantasy and realism, how important it is to just go there for emotional scenes, how difficult it was to get through the S&M scene without laughing, and how she likes to be challenged by the characters that she plays.  She also talked about being a part of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, how much fun it was to work with Ray Liotta for the 17 hours that she worked on the film, and how much more aware you are of your own physicality in front of a green screen.  Check out what she had to say after the jump.

At the film’s press day, actor Michael Angarano spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about why this odd little film appealed to him, keeping the relationship very real amidst this fantastical story, how they got to play around a bit with the script, and how much he enjoyed shooting the emotionally abusive moments.  He also talked about what attracted him to the remake of the 1986 film Heat (that starred Burt Reynolds and Peter MacNicol), about a recovering gambling addict who finds work providing protection to his friends, which he’ll be starring in with Jason Statham.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

The first trailer and poster for the dark comedy The Brass Teapot have been released online.  The film stars Juno Temple and Michael Angarano as a young married couple who come into possession of a mysterious teapot that dispenses money whenever the owners hurt themselves.  It’s an interesting premise that plays out in a strange fashion, and I’m not exactly sure of the film’s tone based off of this trailer.  It certainly looks like it has potential, but there’s a grating emo rock song that plays throughout the second half of the trailer that’s more than a little annoying/distracting.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster.  Directed by Ramaa Mosley, the film also stars Alexis Bledel, Billy Magnussen, Alia Shawkat, Bobby Moynihan, Stephen Park, and Debra MonkThe Brass Teapot opens on April 5th.

Two new roles to report for Alia Shawkat tonight.  Shawkat is the latest to join the cast of He Loves Me, following in the talented footsteps of Paul Dano, Annette Bening, Zoe Kazan, Chris Messina, Antonio Banderas, Deborah Ann Woll, Steve Coogan, Toni Trucks, and Elliott Gould.  Dano stars as “a once-great novelist who’s creativity is blocked due to heartache and loneliness.”  He writes about a new character, his dream girl (played by Kazan), to overcome his writer’s block and somehow wills her into existence.  Shawkat will play Mabel, “a cute hipster who has a crush on Dano’s character and is obsessed with one of his literary creations.”  Directed by Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton (Little Miss Sunshine), He Loves Me is currently in production in Los Angeles.
