Exclusive sneak peek of new black comedy 'Dead In A Week (Or Your Money Back)' starring Tom Wilkinson: Watch
Directed by Tom Edmunds, 'Dead In A Week (Or Your Money Back)' stars Tom Wilkinson, Aneurin Barnard and Freya Mavor and hits theaters and VOD November 30
This Friday marks the release of the new black comedy film 'Dead In A Week (Or Your Money Back)'. The grim yet strangely funny film stars Tom Wilkinson, Aneurin Barnard and Freya Mavor along with Marion Bailey and Christopher Eccleston.
The film revolves around depressed and struggling writer William (Barnard), who after several unsuccessful suicide attempts, decides to outsource the task to Leslie (Wilkinson), an ageing hitman on the brink of retirement. But with the contract signed and death assured within a week, or, as the title suggests, a full refund due, William finally gets his big break as he strikes a huge publishing deal and discovers a new reason to live. Unfortunately, as far as Leslie is concerned, the contract is binding.
Written and directed by British filmmaker Tom Edmunds -- making his feature directorial debut after a few short films previously -- 'Dead In A Week' premiered at the Edinburgh and Galway Film Festivals earlier this year.
The film hits select theaters in the U.S. and on VOD starting November 30. But before you check out the film, here is an exclusive sneak peek. The 90-second clip features Wilkinson as Leslie in an awkward interaction with the secretary of his hitman association as he realizes he hasn't been invited to a company conference.
We get a short glimpse of what the rest of the hitmen might be up to as the schedule for the conference lists chuckle-worthy titles like "Making It Look Like Suicide", "A Peek Behind The Iron Curtain' and "Lunch". Check out the exclusive clip below.
