BRIGSBY BEAR is one of the most honest, sincere, non-cynical & infectiously cool movies you’ll see in a long time. Co-written and starring Saturday Night Live’s Kyle Mooney and directed by SNL’s Dave McCary (who met in 4th Grade and have been working together ever since – co-writer Kevin Costello came much later…in the 7th Grade). Dave and Kyle went on to co-found the Good Neighbor Comedy sketch group (which included Beck Bennett & Nick Rutherford – both in Brigsby), and now are both on SNL (as well as Beck). Produced by 3311 Productions, YL Pictures, Lord Miller and The Lonely Island, BRIGSBY BEAR will open in the US on July 28.
Starring Kyle Mooney, Claire Danes, Mark Hamill, Greg Kinnear, Andy Samberg,
Matt Walsh, Michaela Watkins, Jane Adams, Beck Bennett,
Alexa Demie, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Kate Lyn Sheil & Ryan Simpkins.
“BRIGSBY BEAR is a film about friendship, family and nostalgia,” Kyle Mooney.
It is also about a man-sized teddy bear who repeatedly saves the galaxy with his twin-sister sidekicks. And, super heroes, goodness, fantasy, pop-culture, imagination, dreams, fandom, creativity….
