Lana Condor and Cole Sprouse star in the upcoming romcom, Moonshot. The film is set for release on HBO Max on March 31.
I’ve been a fan of Condor since seeing her as Jubilee in X-Men: Apocalypse. It was a shame to see Deadly Class canceled after only 10 episodes, but it’s great to see her career continuing to flourish with leading roles in the To All the Boys film series and now Moonshot.
Cole Sprouse has always sprouted up (get it?) on television over the years for me. From seeing him in the Suite Life series (the hotel one and the ship one), as well as playing Jughead on Riverdale, he’s a very likable actor and that charm still shines through in this trailer.
Moonshot also stars Mason Goodman, Emily Rudd, and Zach Braff (Scrubs fans where you at?).
Like many 20-somethings her age, Sophie (Lana Condor) is faced with a world of choices. Sure, there’s the future stuff, the family stuff, the job stuff. But, where she is truly confused is on the big choice, the momentous one, the top-of-list one that stands out—what to do about him!
Her long-term b.f. Calvin (Mason Gooding) has moved with his family and taken a job out of town. As in way out of town. A published scientist, Calvin’s posting was supposed to be temporary and now, that “temporary” is beginning to read more like “permanent.”
Then there’s Walt (Cole Sprouse), who’s also confronted with choices, but mmmmmaybe not so many. He’s pretty content with his going nowhere assistant barista job in a college bookshop and his solitary existence. That is, until he meets Ginny (Emily Rudd), and the closing-time-to-sunrise hours he spends with her convinces him that she’s the one. The time just flies. But sadly, at dawn, so does Ginny, off to where her new life is waiting.
A romantic comedy with a twist, Moonshot follows Walt and Sophie as they join forces in order to be reunited with their significant others, embarking upon a lively journey that winds up taking them both wildly and unexpectedly off course.
