Babes | Trailer lands for incoming comedy

Promising to do for childbirth what Bridesmaids did for weddings, here’s the trailer for the upcoming comedy Babes.

After proving a hit at the Toronto Film Festival in the autumn of last year, the comedy movie Babes has now secured distribution – in America at least – and is on its way to wider release.

Neon has acquired the film in America, and is demonstrating some confidence in it too by unleashing it in May 2024. There’s zero mention of it on the UK schedules at the moment, and we’re unclear if a British distributor has signed the movie up. We’ll keep you posted on that bit as we hear more.

What we do have is the first trailer for the film though, that Neon has just released. It’s appearing like magic below these very works…

What we also have too is the official synopsis for the film, and that reads as follows…

BABES follows inseparable childhood best friends Eden (Ilana Glazer) and Dawn (Michelle Buteau), having grown up together in NYC, now firmly in different phases of adulthood. When carefree and single Eden decides to have a baby on her own after a one-night stand, their friendship faces its greatest challenge. BABES delves into the complexities of female friendship with a blend of laughter, tears, and labor pains. From co-writers Ilana Glazer and Josh Rabinowitz and directed by Pamela Adlon, BABES is a hilarious and heartfelt comedy about the bonds of friendship and the messy, unpredictable challenges of adulthood and becoming a parent.

The film’s marketing appears to be positioning it as a high summer comedy release, with a poster that plays up the fact that at least one review – Rolling Stone – has brought the film Bridesmaids into the conversation. Wise, too: Bridesmaids was a big hit on release, and has continued to be a big hit since.

More on Babes as we hear it, including any details we gleam as to whether it’ll come to this isle.
