John Connor [Celluloid 02.21.19] comedy drama

Indie distributor Global Digital Releasing has partnered with Pope III Enterprises to release the award-winning con-artist comedy BRUCE!!!!. The film will hit theaters nationwide March 15, 2019.

Bruce!!! centers around Bruce (played by Eden Marryshow “Jessica Jones”), an egocentric, self-professed writer, director, artist and playboy. Bruce damages all of his relationships, romantic or otherwise as he cons his way through his self-obsessed existence with a mixture of swagger and deeply insecure neuroticism.

The film, which was written by Eden Marryshow and Jesse Wakeman, has been the recipient of several awards including the Grand Jury Prize for “Best Director” at the American Black Film Festival (2017) and the HBO Award for “Best Film” and the Audience Award (2018).

Always tight on money, with a self-inflated view of his own genius, Bruce’s free ride comes to an abrupt end after his parents cut him off and his roommate (Jason Tottenham “Quantico”) informs him he’s moving in with his fiancé (Jade Eshete “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency”).

Desperate to keep his apartment and stay afloat financially, Bruce concocts a plan to run an ad for a hot female roommate and charge her 80% of the rent. When Bruce falls for one of the applicants (Mle’ Chester “Vinyl”), he tries to turn his life around, but as the saying goes, karma is a bitch.

Will BRUCE see the error of his ways or remain irredeemably awful

Additional accolades include Urbanworld Film Festival Official Selection (2017), New Voices in Black Cinema at BAM -- Opening Night Film (2018), Color of Conversation Official Selection (2018), Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Festival (Opening Night Film 2018) and the Denton Black Film Festival (Invitational Film Selection 2019).

The film has a stellar cast which includes Cesa Pledger, Gene Pope, Christopher Gabriel Núñez, Jamie Dunn, Brenda Thomas, Ysmael Reyes and Jean Goto.

BRUCE!!!! opens in AMC Theaters across 25 cities on March 15th. Locations available on the film's official website.
