Move over everything else coming out in 2013, the first trailer for the ridiculous movie The Brass Teapot just charmed the pants off of us. The film, which was lensed by music director Ramaa Mosley, was discovered after the director started googling "best short story," and came across Tim Macy's teapot tale. The story centers around the little known story about the Brass Teapot. According to religious folk lore, the brass teapot is made in part from the blood money paid in silver to Judas for the treason of Jesus, thus giving it magical powers. Specifically, the power to spew out money every time the Brass Teapot's owner injure themselves.


The short became a comic which then became this movie, and here is the very first trailer starring Juno Temple and Michael Angarano. Enjoy — we certainly did.

Here's the official synopsis:

Based on the comic book, THE BRASS TEAPOT is a feature film about John and Alice who live in small town America - 20s, married, very much in love, and broke. Once voted "Most Likely to Succeed," Alice struggles to make ends meet while her friends enjoy the good life. Her husband John, neurotic and riddled with phobias, just wants to get the bills paid. But an accident leads them to a roadside antique shop where Alice is spontaneously drawn to a mysterious brass teapot. It isn't long before they realize that this is no ordinary teapot and that perhaps they have found the answer to all of their financial woes… THE BRASS TEAPOT is a magical comedy that reminds us to be careful what we wish for.

the most annoying potato

Hey, um, I'm not a native speaker and all, so I might just be confused.

But that apostrophe in "When life loses it's magic"... isn't it wrong? Because I don't think an "is" would make any sense whatsoever in there. Or maybe my English is complete rubbish. Who knows?

Unless they mean "It is magic when life loses". Which doesn't seem to fit in with anything.
