In the comedy Future ’38, an American agent travels from the ’30s to 2018 to hamstring Hitler and discovers a strange world of connected computers and other futuristic phenomena. He also falls for a woman 80 years his junior.
“The film is a valentine to the classic screwball comedies of the 1930s and ’40s,” says writer-director Jamie Greenberg in his director’s statement. “It imagines a world that’s a magical hybrid of 1938 and the present: a vintage film transposed to our modern world.”
Future ’38 stars Betty Gilpin, Nick Westrate, Robert John Burke, Ethan Phillips, Sophie von Haselberg, Ilana Becker, Sean Young, and Neil deGrasse Tyson.
The film will be premiere theatrically in New York Dec. 1 followed by a digital release in early 2018.
