Brie Larson And Samuel L Jackson Make The Weirdest Post-Marvel Pivot In The 'Unicorn Store' Trailer
Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson's first post-Captain Marvel pairing is a weird one. For her directorial debut, Larson stars the Netflix original movie Unicorn Store as a cripplingly quirky woman named Kit.
Kit's main problem seems to be that she has no idea how to function as an adult (relatable!) and is trapped working as a temp in a bleak office park after failing out of art school (too real!). But her chance at salvation comes in the form of a magenta and turquoise envelope inviting her to "The Store," run by a tinsel-haired Samuel L. Jackson.
In what sounds like an extremely shaky business model, Jackson offers Larson a unicorn, apparently the one thing that she's ever deeply wanted in her whole life, but only on the condition she prove she can care for it. Is it all an elaborate con to get Kit's life on track? Maybe! Is it a weird flex for both Larson and Jackson to make between Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame? Most definitely. Regardless, there's too much fringe in this movie to pass up even if it seems to be reaching terminal levels of twee.
Unicorn Store premieres on Netflix on April 5.
