‘Violet & Daisy’ Trailer – Saoirse Ronan & Alexis Bledel Attempt to Kill James Gandolfini

Written by on April 30, 2013 

Nearly two years ago, close to the end of the Toronto International Film Festival, I attended the premiere of the next film from Oscar-winning Precious screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher. Moving from writing to directing, he delivered a film that bears little resemblance to his previous effort, an action comedy about a pair of teen girl assassins (Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel) who are hired to kill a mysterious man (James Gandolfini).

We’ve now got the first trailer for Violet & Daisy, which sells its fun tone. While I found the quirky elements to be a bit overbearing and the overall scope to be noticeably small, the fantastical style is a welcome one and Fletcher certainly improves on his heavy-handiness. Also starring Danny Trejo, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Cody Horn, check out the first full-length trailer below, as well as the new poster, for the film that’s arriving this June.


Violet & Daisy, the whimsical story of a teenager’s surreal and violent journey through New York City, follows Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan (Hanna, Atonement, The Lovely Bones) as Daisy. With her volatile partner-in-crime Violet, played by Alexis Bledel (Sin City, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, The Gilmore Girls), the two young assassins face a series of opponents, including one unusually mysterious man (James Gandolfini), in a life-altering encounter. The film, written and directed by Oscar-winning screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher (Precious), also stars Oscar nominee Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Danny Trejo.

Violet & Daisy hits theaters on June 7th.
