Anna Kendrick Calls Her Film 'The Day Shall Come' a 'Dark Satire'

Anna Kendrick paid a visit to Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday (September 25), and dished about tackling the criminal justice system through satire in her new film, The Day Shall Come!

“It’s hard to describe. It’s a dark satire about the criminal justice system and it really devolves into like a farce of full Shakespearean comedy of errors where everybody is misunderstanding everybody,” the 34-year-old actress explained to host Seth.

The movie follows an FBI agent who is trying to capture a small-time Miami street preacher funded by a Middle Eastern terrorist organization. There’s a twist though as the organization is actually the U.S. government conducting a scheme “entrap Moses and make his arrest the latest national security win.”

“It’s so funny but not because we take it lightly, but because [director] Chris Morris is so good at using satire to talk about these subjects,” Anna concluded. “British comedy legend.”

That same day, Anna Kendrick joined her pregnant co-star Danielle Brooks at the BUILD Series to continue to promote The Day Shall Come – Watch the trailer here!
