The full trailer is here for New Zealand director Taika Waititi’s WW2-era satire “Jojo Rabbit” which Fox Searchlight will grant a limited release opening to on October 18th.
The story revolves around a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis) whose only ally is his imaginary friend Adolf Hitler (Waititi). The kid’s world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic.
Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism. Sam Rockwell, Stephen Merchant, Alfie Allen and Rebel Wilson co-star in the project which premieres at the Toronto Film Festival.
