…and just like that, Justin Long seems to be everywhere at the moment. The actor starred in Kevin Smith‘s “Tusk,” he’s got the crime/comedy/thriller “The Lookalike” coming up (trailer and clips here), and “Comet” is coming into orbit. And it’s going to be one you’ll want to track down.
Co-starring Emmy Rossum, and written and directed by Sam Esmail, this fantastical romance follows a six year relationship between Dell (Long) and Kimberly (Rossum), through their various ups and downs. The trick is that “Comet” isn’t structured in a linear fashion and has more than few creative flourishes, but it all works quite well. As Katie Walsh wrote in her review out of the L.A. Film Festival, the movie features “career-best performances from Long and Rossum, and a juicy script that bravely dives into the darkest parts of breaking up and making up.”
“Comet” opens on December 5th. Watch the new trailer below.
