Justin Long has returned to the big screen this weekend as he leads the cast in new comedy/romance Comet, which sees him team up with Emmy Rossum.
Comet marks the first time that Long and Rossum have worked together and follows their six year relationship set in a parallel universe.
The movie is in a select number of cinemas this weekend and we have an exclusive clip to share with you to whet your appetite for the movie:
Comet sees Sam Esmail make his feature film directorial debut - making the leap into features after making his first short film back in 2004. Esmail has penned the screenplay as well as being in the director's chair.
A great cast has been assembled for the film as Long and Rossum are joined by Kayla Servi and Eric Winter
Comet explores the six-year relationship between Dell and Kimberly, as it skips around between five pivotal moments. Set in a parallel universe only slightly different from ours, Dell first meets Kimberly while waiting in line to watch a meteor shower at the Hollywood Forever cemetery.
When he spots Kimberly, he is almost hit by a car, flooding his vision with a series of unusual glimpses of their future together. Despite Kimberly being on a date with a much better-looking man, Dell pursues her but she rebukes his advances. As the night goes on, however, Dell playfully convinces Kimberly to
keep talking to him. They gradually become more comfortable with each other as they spend the night together.
Jumping ahead, we find them in a two-year relationship, as they get ready for a friend's wedding in their Parisian hotel room. Kimberly grows annoyed with Dell as he gives unenthusiastic responses to her questions about their future. Unbeknownst to her, Dell is actually looking for the right moment to propose.
Across these five separate sequences, Comet jumps around, back and forth, as it explores the defining moments of Dell and Kimberly's
relationship. Reality starts to come into question as surreal manifestations of love and heartbreak take over, blurring the lines between memories and dreams.
Comet is in select cinemas now and on VoD from July 13.
