The new trailer for "Wicked Little Letters" - which film distributor StudioCanal notes features "scandalously sweary" language - comes after the film had its world premiere at TIFF in September. 

An official synopsis for "Wicked Little Letters" says: "A 1920s English seaside town bears witness to a dark and absurd scandal in this riotous mystery comedy.

"Based on a stranger-than-fiction true story, 'Wicked Little Letters' follows two neighbours: deeply conservative local Edith Swan (Olivia Colman) and rowdy Irish migrant Rose Gooding (Jessie Buckley).

"When Edith and fellow residents begin to receive wicked letters full of unintentionally hilarious profanities, foul-mouthed Rose is charged with the crime. The anonymous letters prompt a national uproar, and a trial ensues.

"However, as the town’s women - led by Police Officer Gladys Moss (Anjana Vasan) - begin to investigate the crime themselves, they suspect that something is amiss, and Rose may not be the culprit after all."

"Wicked Little Letters," directed by Thea Sharrock and written by Jonny Sweet, is due to arrive in UK cinemas on February 23, 2024.

While Co Kerry native Buckley stars in the lead opposite Colman, the "Wicked Little Letters" cast also features Dublin native and IFTA nominee Alisha Weir, who skyrocketed to fame after starring in Netflix's "Matilda the Musical."

Meanwhile, Deadline reports that Sony Pictures Classics has acquired rights to the new film in North America and China, while Sony Pictures’ Stage 6 Films previously acquired additional international rights.

“Wicked Little Letters not only showcases great actors at the peak of their comedic form but also provides the kind of fun, rich entertainment audiences hunger for now more than ever,” Sony Pictures Classics said in a statement.

Studiocanal’s Head of International Sales Chloe Marquet said of the deal: “We are thrilled to partner with SPC on Wicked Little Letters, and closely following the fantastic reception in TIFF.

"We know that SPC is the ideal partner to bring this very special movie to audiences in North America next year.”
