Fun trailer for the fantastic action comedy THELMA – You will love this movie!

Magnolia has released a full trailer for the upcoming action comedyThelmathat audiences will freaking love!

I saw the film at Sundance earlier this year and it was my favorite film at the film festival. This is a film worth watching and takes the audience on a delightful, fun and entertaining adventure.

The story presents us with an unlikely action hero, a wonderfully played older woman named Thelma Post June Squibb.

In the film, “Thelma Post is a feisty 93-year-old grandmother who is scammed by a phone scammer pretending to be her grandson and sets off on a treacherous quest across Los Angeles, accompanied by an old friend and his motorized scooter, to reclaim what was taken from her.”

This is Squibb’s first leading film role in her 70-year career. In it, she “portrays the strong-willed Thelma with grit and determination, proving that she is more than capable of taking care of business, despite what her daughter Gail, son-in-law Alan or nephew Danny might believe.”

Squibb also performed most of her own stunts in the film!

The film was written and directed by Josh Margolin and he is also the protagonist Parker Posey as Thelma’s daughter, Clark Gregg as his son-in-law, and Fred Hechinger like his nephew.

Thelma is inspired by the director’s grandmother who almost fell victim to a phone scam similar to the one the film is about. So, the movie is what she imagined her grandmother would have made if she had actually been scammed.

Thelma will be released in theaters on June 21st. You can read my review of the film here.
