Check Out The Trailer For Machine Gun Kelly’s Directorial Debut, ‘Good Mourning’

The first trailer for Machine Gun Kelly’s (aka Colson Baker) directorial debut, ‘Good Mourning’, has been released.

Good Mourning, a stoner comedy in which Baker co-wrote, directed, and stars alongside fellow artist Mod Sun, fiancée Megan Fox and close friend Pete Davidson, was first announced last August and was confirmed last week that it will be out on 20th May.  It’ll be released in theatres and on demand at the same time, however it’s unclear which platform will host the film’s digital release.

Baker plays London Clash, an actor who is going through an existential crisis in the film. Clash’s “world is turned upside down” when he “wakes up to an implied breakup text from the love of his life” on the morning of a vital meeting with the director of a Batman film, according to the logline.

The synopsis for Good Mourning continues: “Compounded by chaotic roommates and wildly unpredictable twists and turns, London’s day keeps going downhill until ultimately, he is forced to choose between pursuing his one true love and landing a life-changing, starring role in a major motion picture.”

In a statement shared with the announcement of the film’s release date, Open Road Films CEO Tom Ortenberg said: “We are looking forward to bringing this wild comedy to audiences in theaters and at home on demand. The film is a reminder of how fun movies can be to make and watch Colson and this incredible cast will bring audiences to their knees in laughter and leave their jaws on the floor.”

The sentiment was shared by Cedar Park Studios’ Added Long, who added: “Our goal at Cedar Park Studios is to provide opportunities to fresh, creative voices in the industry and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with first-time filmmakers Colson and Mod. Bold in their approach, they have assembled a troupe of top-tier talent to join them on this hilarious ride. We’re ecstatic to be a part of their filmmaking debut.”

Baker’s third film in 2022 will be Good Mourning, following a cameo in Jackass Forever and a starring role in the music drama Taurus. He’ll also be working with Pete Davidson for the third time, after cameos in Big Time Adolescence and The King Of Staten Island.

As Machine Gun Kelly, the multi-hyphenate released his sixth album, ‘Mainstream Sellout’, last month. In a four-star review of it, NME’s Ali Shutler said the album is “driven by a relatable sense of angst and its outsider anthems will continue to speak to the millions who see Machine Gun Kelly as the saviour of punk rock”.
