A24 Debut First Trailer for Comic-Centric Cannes Hit ‘FUNNY PAGES’

A24 has just debuted the first official trailer for Owen Kline’s absurdly comedic directorial debut, Funny Pages set in and around the world of comics.

Written and Directed by Kline, and starring Daniel Zolghadri (Low Tide, “Tales From the Loop”), Matthew Maher (Gone Baby Gone, “Outer Range”), Miles Emanuel (Calidris), Maria Dizzia (Martha Marcy May Marlene, “13 Reasons Why”), and Josh Pais (Joker, Motherless Brooklyn), Funny Pages tells the bitingly funny coming-of-age story of a teenage cartoonist (Zolghadri) who rejects the comforts of his suburban life and leaves home, finding an unwilling teacher and unwitting friend in Wallace (Maher), a former low-level comic artist.

Speaking with VERVETIMES about his directorial debut, Kline said, “I wanted to be a cartoonist when I was younger so it was just fabric I was familiar with. I realized very quickly that having a few characters that were cartoonists was a fun thing to zero in on in terms of character detail. And I’d get to cast cartoonists of different styles for the characters to match their ideals. One very hopeful and un-self-aware character draws a crude Barks-inspired funny animal minicomic.”

We’ll leave you with the official trailer for the Cannes hit which releases in select theaters and On Demand this coming August 26, 2022.
