The Day Shall Come is an upcoming 2019 British-American satirical black comedy thriller film, written by Chris Morris and Jesse Armstrong and directed by Morris. The film stars Marchánt Davis, Anna Kendrick, Danielle Brooks and Denis O’Hare. The Day Shall Come exploits the farce at the heart of real life FBI sting operations.
It had its world premiere at South by Southwest March 11, 2019. It is scheduled to be released in the United States on 27th September 2019, by IFC Films, and in the United Kingdom on 11th October 2019.
Moses (Marchant Davis), the impoverished leader of a small Hebrew Israelite commune in Miami, is offered cash to save his family from eviction. He has no idea his sponsor works for FBI agent Kendra Glack (Anna Kendrick), who plans to turn him into a criminal by fuelling his madcap revolutionary dreams, just to look good in front of her boss.
The Golden Glove also release on 27th September 2019.
His follow-up has been shrouded in secrecy, filmed almost two years ago and now finally being unveiled at this year’s SXSW festival, a tantalisingly unknown quantity suddenly thrust into the spotlight. The past decade has offered plentiful options for Morris, territory so comically obscene that it’s almost beyond satire. It proved a struggle last year for Sacha Baron Cohen, whose much-heralded comeback show Who is America? tackled such idiocy head-on and felt tame in comparison, trying to shock us into submission without realising that we’ve now become virtually unshockable.
Kendra thinks she’s found the perfect target in Moses Al Shabaz (Marchánt Davis), a black militant extremist and twisted conspiracy theorist who broadcasts his confounding messianic proclamation on Facebook Live. Moses, who runs a broken-down mission called The Star of Six Farm, pledges his allegiance to a confusing blend of religious and cultural reference points that includes Jesus, Mohammed, and General Toussaint Louverture.
