Magnet Releasing has released the official trailer and poster for Quentin Dupieux’s latest feature film SMOKING CAUSES COUGHING. Described as a wildly inventive new comedy, SMOKING CAUSES COUGHING follows the misadventures of a team of five superheroes known as the Tobacco Force – Benzene (Gilles Lellouche), Nicotine (Anaïs Demoustier), Methanol (Vincent Lacoste), Mercury (Jean-Pascal Zadi), and Ammonia (Oulaya Amamra). After a devastating battle against a diabolical giant turtle, the Tobacco Force is sent on a mandatory week-long retreat to strengthen their decaying group cohesion. Their sojourn goes wonderfully well until Lézardin, Emperor of Evil, decides to annihilate planet Earth.
Although the film is an action-comedy, nearing satirical identity, fans of franchises like Super Sentai, Power Rangers, or the anime series Love After World Domination would find themself keen on wanting to watch Depieux’s latest outing. Based on what we see in the trailer, we’re sure that everyone watching will leave the theaters loving the Tobacco Force and all of the film’s addictive hijinx.
SMOKING CAUSES COUGHING stars Gilles Lellouche, Anaïs Demoustier, Vincent Lacoste, Jean-Pascal Zadi, and Oulaya Amamra; and will release in theaters and on digital on March 31st. For a full list of 2023 film releases click here.
