Must watch red-band trailer for Jerrod Carmichael’s bold directorial debut On The Count of Three

Firstly, as they say, here’s a Trigger Warning because On The Count of Three is going all in with the subject matter of mental health and suicide. If you’re in the States and you or a loved one is suffering, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK or the Crisis Text Line (Text TALK to 741741) to talk to someone who can help. If you’re in the UK, that’s 0800 689 5652 or Text SHOUT to 85258 to text with a trained Crisis Volunteer.

I feel oddly lucky we’re in an era where these things are more openly discussed, and while there’s still much that isn’t, trust me, in the last 10 years we’ve moved forward a lot. It was only into my late twenties/early thirties that even talking about mental health became more normal, before that there was a lot of holding it in, and just wondering what’s wrong with yourself but these days? We’re talking and I like the look of this one.

Written by Ari Katcher and Ryan Welch, On The Count of Three is Jerrod Carmichael‘s directorial debut, in which he also stars, and it’s described a darkly comic feature about two best friends, Val (Carmichael) and Kevin (Christopher Abbott), on the last day of their lives – yup. Backed by the legendary team of Annapurna Pictures and Orion Pictures, the film also stars Tiffany Haddish (who’s superb right now in the likes of The Afterparty, Here Today and The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent), plus JB Smoove and Henry Winkler – Check out the trailer:

On The Count of Three comes to select cinemas and Digital from 13 May
