Sean Baker’s RED ROCKET Gets a Trailer

A24 has released the trailer for Sean Baker’s upcoming dramedy Red Rocket, starring Simon Rex as an adult film actor who moves back to his hometown in Texas and tries to get his life together. As a rabid fan of all things Sean Baker this is one of my most anticipated films of the year and I absolutely can’t wait until it hits theaters this December.

Red Rocket is co-written by Baker and Chris Bergoch and also stars Suzanna Son, Bree Elrod, Brenda Deiss, Ethan Darbone, Brittney Rodriguez, and Judy Hill.


The audacious new film from writer-director Sean Baker (The Florida Project, Tangerine), starring Simon Rex in a magnetic, live-wire performance, Red Rocket is a darkly funny and humane portrait of a uniquely American hustler and a hometown that barely tolerates him.
