Do you remember Sebastian Gutierrez’s 2009 film Women in Trouble? If not, don’t feel bad because a lot of people don’t. The film had a limited release but a huge cast, which was led by Carla Gugino. She played a legendary porn star named Elektra Luxx, and now almost two years later, she’s back in her own self-titled sequel. Check out the official trailer for the film that’s just been released…
The film features several returning actors from the original, as well as a few new faces including our personal favorite Timothy Olyphant. That man can do no wrong in our eyes! We also love how they’ve expanded Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s part. In the first movie he had more of a cameo than a full supporting role.
Recently retired from the adult film industry, superstar Elektra Luxx (Carla Gugino) is pregnant with the child of late rock star Nick Chapel. She is trying to make ends meet by teaching a community college sex education class aimed at housewives when a figure from her past, flight attendant Cora (Marley Shelton), approaches her with a proposition. In exchange for the (stolen) lyrics to Nick Chapel’s last record, all of which is about Elektra, Cora needs Elektra to seduce her fiancee. Elektra reluctantly agrees to do this favor, setting in motion a series of hilarious events which will see her come face to face with detectives, sex bloggers, emotionally unstable neighbors and the Virgin Mary herself as she wrestles with the prospect of motherhood and tries to become a person of substance.
Elektra Luxx is due out in theaters on March 11.
