Sony has released the first trailer for RICKI AND THE FLASH, the upcoming dramedy from THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS and RACHEL GETTING MARRIED director Jonathan Demme. Meryl Streep stars as the titular Ricki, a wannabe rock star trying to reconnect with her now adult children (Streep's real-life daughter Mamie Gummer and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER's Sebastian Stan) after abandoning them to pursue her dream. Diablo Cody (JUNO, YOUNG ADULT) penned the script, and the film also features the talents of Kevin Kline and Rick Springfield. Yes, that Rick Springfield.

"I was never a traditional mom."

RICKI AND THE FLASH looks predictable and clichéd as hell, but with Academy Award winning talent in front of and behind the camera, I'm hopeful that the film will be less generic than the trailer makes it out to be. Plus, is it me or is Meryl Streep's Ricki kind of hot?

RICKI AND THE FLASH will take the stage on August 7, 2015.

She looks like a rock musician, but only plays country? Shows how ignorant I am. Still, I'm sure Meryl Streep is gonna be nominated again. It's almost a rule now, no matter how good/bad the movie and her performance is.

I initially read, the upcoming dramedy of THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, and thought that might actually be worth watching as long as they incorporated The Greenskeeper's Lotion song somewhere.
