The first poster and trailer for Ricki and the Flash, the new film starring Meryl Streep (Mamma Mia), have arrived online and we have them both for you right here…
Meryl Streep takes on a whole new gig – a hard-rocking singer/guitarist – for Oscar®-winning director Jonathan Demme and Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody in Ricki and the Flash. In an original and electrifying film loaded with live musical performances, Streep stars as Ricki Rendazzo, a guitar heroine who made a world of mistakes as she followed her dreams of rock-and-roll stardom. Returning home, Ricki gets a shot at redemption and a chance to make things right as she faces the music with her family. Streep stars opposite her real-life daughter Mamie Gummer; Rick Springfield, portraying a Flash member in love with Ricki; Kevin Kline as Ricki’s ex-husband; and Audra McDonald as Kline’s new wife.
Directed by Oscar winner Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs) and written by fellow Oscar winner Diablo Cody (Juno), Ricki and the Flash also stars Kevin Kline (My Old Lady), Mamie Gummer (Cake), Sebastian Stan (Captain America: Winter Soldier), Rick Springfield (True Detective), Ben Platt (Pitch Perfect) and Audra McDonald (Private Practice).
Ricki and the Flash will open on August 7th.
