Ahead of its release next month, a new poster and trailer have arrived online for the upcoming comedy Late Night which stars Emma Thompson as Katherine Newbury, a talk show host who finds her job at risk when she’s accused of being ‘a woman who hates women’ and so hires Molly (Mindy Kaling) to join her male dominated writers room in an effort save her career.
Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is a pioneer and legendary host on the late-night talk-show circuit. When she’s accused of being a “woman who hates women,” she puts affirmative action on the to-do list, and—presto!—Molly (Mindy Kaling) is hired as the one woman in Katherine’s all-male writers’ room. But Molly might be too little too late, as the formidable Katherine also faces the reality of low ratings and a network that wants to replace her. Molly, wanting to prove she’s not simply a diversity hire who’s disrupting the comfort of the brotherhood, is determined to help Katherine by revitalizing her show and career—and possibly effect even bigger change at the same time.
UPDATE: And here’s a UK poster and trailer…
Late Night is set to arrive in theatres on June 7th and features a cast that also includes John Lithgow, Hugh Dancy, Reid Scott, Paul Walter Hauser, Amy Ryan, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Denis O’Hare, and Ike Barinholtz.
