Level 33 Entertainment will bring audiences a new wild romantic comedy next month.

Just in time for the annual wedding season, Level 33 Productions will release the new independent rom-com, The Wedding Video May 9th. The movie will make its American debut at The Crest Theatre in Los Angeles, California. The comedy was written by Tim Firth (Confessions of a Shopaholic, Calendar Girls) and directed by Nigel Cole (Calendar Girls). Cole will hold a special Q&A session before the movie runs. It stars Lucy Punch (Bad Teacher, Dinner for Schmucks, Into The Woods), Robert Webb (Peep Show), Rufus Hound (Celebrity Juice), Angus Barnett (Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy), and Miriam Margolyes (The Guilt Trip, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Romeo + Juliet).

The Wedding Video is a farce about every couple’s big day. Raif (Rufus Hound) is asked by his brother Tim (Robert Webb) to document the days leading up to Tim’s wedding. Raif agrees and decides to make a true documentary, leaving out nothing. He is going to give the video to Tim and his bride-to-be (Lucy Punch) as a gift. But things don’t exactly go as planned as the big day nears. Miriam Margolyes co-stars as Patricia. She is joined by fellow co-stars Harriet Walter (A Royal Affair, Young Victoria) as Alex and Angus Barnett as Reverend Dobbs.

Andreas Olavarria, president of Level 33 Entertainment, discussed his pleasure at having the movie finally make its U.S. premiere in a recent interview. “We’re excited to have the opportunity to finally bring THE WEDDING VIDEO across the pond, so that audiences all over the United States can enjoy this truly hilarious and entertaining film,” he said. Since its debut in the UK, The Wedding Video grossed the equivalent of $1.7 million USD.
