Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.

In the trailer for Neil LaBute’s upcoming Dirty Weekend—which premiered at Tribeca earlier this year—coworkers Les (Matthew Broderick) and Natalie (Alice Eve) get stuck in Albuquerque and are forced to spend some one-on-one time with each other as they await their flight out, which leads to some classic we’re-stuck-in-Albuquerque secret sharing. And because this is a Neil LaBute movie, the secrets Les and Natalie divulge to one another appear to be sexual in nature.

Sex and sexuality have long been the thematic underpinnings of LaBute’s work, which includes In The Company Of Men, Lakeview Terrace, and the Adam Brody-starring DirecTV incest drama Billy And Billie. LaBute previously directed Eve—who also stars in Chris Evans’s directorial debut—in his 2012 film about role-playing fantasies Some Velvet Morning. While the trailer shows more of Les and Natalie just talking about the concept of a “dirty weekend” instead of indulging in adventures, by the end, they end up at a gay bar called Zorro and things start to get interesting.


Dirty Weekend opens in theaters and on VOD on September 4, 2015.
