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 Monk. The Brass Teapot opens on April 5th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Brass Teapot:
John and Alice live in small-town America—20s, married, very much in love, and broke. Once voted “most likely to succeed,” Alice struggles to make ends meet while her friends enjoy the good life. Her husband John, neurotic and riddled with phobias, just wants to get the bills paid. But an accident leads them to a roadside antique shop where Alice is spontaneously drawn to a mysterious brass teapot. It isn’t long before they realize that this is no ordinary teapot and that perhaps they have found the answer to all of their financial woes… THE BRASS TEAPOT is a magical dark comedy that reminds us to be careful what we wish for.
