A new official trailer for “Pixie,” a brand new British comedy-drama, has arrived starring Olivia Cooke along with an ensemble cast which includes the likes of East Enders’ Ben Hardy, Peaky Blinder’s Daryl McCormack, Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Colm Meaney, and legendary Alec Baldwin. The last we saw Olivia Cooke was in the critically acclaimed “Sound Of Metal,” starring alongside Riz Ahmed, which won several accolades, including being named one of the ten best films of 2020 by the American Film Institute and by the National Board of Review. After the emotional rollercoaster ride of “Sound Of Metal,” “Pixie” will be a complete comedic turn for the actor who is also bringing the veteran Alec Baldwin into the frame.
In Pixie, Cooke will be seen playing the role of a young woman who keeps a lot of ties with the criminal words to avenge the death of her mother, and to do so; she plans a full-fledged heist that goes all the way around when criminals played by Ben Hardy and Daryl McCormack get involved in along with a religion-influenced gang led by Alec Baldwin as an Irish priest. Directed by Barnaby Thompson, here we are breaking down the trailer for “Pixie” and everything you need to know.
Pixie – Official Trailer
The new official trailer for “Pixie” starts with Olivia Cooke’s Pixie O’Brien starring off at her mother’s grave and determining to take revenge for whomsoever did this to her mother. The next moment we see the trailer introducing us to Ben Hardy’s duo as Frank and Daryl McCormack as Harland, two criminals who have a body in their car deck and looking to skip town. Pixie asks them to join her on a mission to execute a heist, and soon they are chased by Pixie’s step-father’s enemies, basically an Irish Priest, in context a deadly gangster Irish priest father Hector McGrath played by Alec Baldwin himself with his religion-influenced gang.
In the rest of the trailer, we see many funny set action sequences induced by funny liners from the actors that complete the comedy-drama genre altogether fit-in with a little action it. We also see a little romancing between Pixie and Frank, which might be one of the minor plots and the movie, but there are some issues between the duo on whether they will benefit by teaming up with her. Anyway, the new trailer overall focuses on a light-hearted vibe with actually funny action sequences here and there and sums up to be a good lazy watch for the audience.
