Lana Condor and her Moonshot co-stars and crew celebrated the premiere of their upcoming film this past Wednesday night at E.P. & L.P. in West Hollywood! The film looks like a sweet and fun rom-com with a sci-fi adventure twist, and it’s great to see Condor in more starring roles.
Joining Condor at the premiere were co-stars Cole Sprouse and Mason Gooding, Director Christopher Winterbauer, Executive Producer Mike McGrath, and Producer Sarah Schechter.
Check out images from the premiere event below and be sure to watch Moonshot exclusively on HBOMax on March 31st!
Like many 20-somethings her age, Sophie (Lana Condor) is faced with a world of choices. Sure, there’s the future stuff, the family stuff, the job stuff. But, where she is truly confused is on the big choice, the momentous one, the top-of-list one that stands out—what to do about him!
Her long-term b.f. Calvin (Mason Gooding) has moved with his family and taken a job out of town. As in way out of town. A published scientist, Calvin’s posting was supposed to be temporary and now, that “temporary” is beginning to read more like “permanent.”
Then there’s Walt (Cole Sprouse), who’s also confronted with choices, but mmmmmaybe not so many. He’s pretty content with his going nowhere assistant barista job in a college bookshop and his solitary existence. That is, until he meets Ginny (Emily Rudd), and the closing-time-to-sunrise hours he spends with her convinces him that she’s the one. The time just flies. But sadly, at dawn, so does Ginny, off to where her new life is waiting.
A romantic comedy with a twist, “Moonshot” follows Walt and Sophie as they join forces in order to be reunited with their significant others, embarking upon a lively journey that winds up taking them both wildly and unexpectedly off course.
The film stars Cole Sprouse (“Riverdale,” “Five Feet Apart”), Lana Condor (“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” trilogy, “Alita: Battle Angel”), Mason Gooding (“Scream” “Love, Victor”), Emily Rudd (“Fear Street” trilogy, “Hunters”) and Zach Braff (“Cheaper by the Dozen,” “Garden State”).
Christopher Winterbauer (“Wyrm”) directed from Max Taxe’s screenplay (his feature film screenwriting debut). Greg Berlanti (“Love, Simon,” “Free Guy”), Sarah Schechter (“Riverdale,” “Batwoman”), Jill McElroy (“Mary + Jane”) and Jenna Sarkin (“The Tribes of Palos Verdes”) produced, with Michael Riley McGrath, Richard Brener, Nikki Ramey, Paulina Sussman, Dana Fox and Michelle Morrissey serving as executive producers.
Joining Winterbauer behind the camera are director of photography Brendan Uegama (“Child’s Play,” “Truth Be Told”), production designer Eddie Matazzoni (“Stargirl,” “Lorelei”), editor Harry Jierjian (“Love, Simon,” “Doom Patrol”), composer David Boman (“Wyrm,” “It’s What
She Would Have Wanted”), music supervisor Susan Jacobs (“King Richard,” “Big Little Lies”) and costume designer Stephani Lewis (“Ozark,” “Super Dark Times”).
