While he’s constantly in the public eye and releasing new films every year, it’s been awhile since Seth Rogen has had a bit enough hit to be considered for opening the summer season. His last really big hit was 2014’s Neighbors and before that you might have to go all the way back to 2007’s Knocked Up. He has had some middle of the ground hits along the way as well though. Thanks to some strong test screenings, Rogen’s new comedy Flarsky might just be another of those big hits.
Flarsky was originally set to open in February of next year, but the film has been making the rounds with a few test screenings, and word is the film has the potential to be a huge hit. Not wanting to waste the film with an early opening, Lionsgate has decided to move the film to June 7, 2019, which would make it one of the summer opening films. It might even be good enough to be considered the comedy of the summer. Some audiences have even been comparing the film to Rogen’s biggest hit, Knocked Up.
Flarsky stars Rogen as Fred Flarsky, a journalist who has fallen on hard times. Luckily for him though his luck is about to change, and after accidentally catching the eye of the world’s most powerful woman named Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron), he becomes a big part of her inner circle as she tries to become the first female president of the United States.
