Ahead of a series of limited theatrical engagements across the US that kicks off this month, Cinedigm debuted the official trailer for Country Gold, Mickey Reece’s country music comedy.
An official selection of Austin’s Fantastic Fest, the Fantasia International Film Festival, and the Glasgow Film Festival, Country Gold will be released digitally April 4 on Fandor in North America.
A theatrical roadshow for Country Gold kicks off March 16 with a series of screenings at select Alamo Drafthouses, presented by Fantastic Fest, and additional theaters across the nation. Reece will be in attendance at select engagements in New York, LA, and Austin.
Set In 1994, the trailer introduces up-and-coming country music star Troyal Brux (portrayed by Reece himself, in wardrobe indebted to the style of Garth Brooks), as he joins Country legend George Jones (Ben Hall, in a wildly hailed performance) for a wild bender in Nashville – the night before George plans to get cryogenically frozen.
Based out of Oklahoma, Reece is the prolific filmmaker behind the cult indies Climate of the Hunter and Agnes. Country Gold harkens back to an earlier Reece opus, the award-winning Mickey Reece’s Alien, which reimagined the early days of Elvis and Pricilla Presley’s marriage, and similarly satirized a music legend at an existential crossroads.
