On behalf of Samuel Goldwyn Films, we are excited to present the brand new trailer for EXPORTING RAYMOND opening in theaters Friday, April 29th. In this real-life comedy of global proportions, Phil Rosenthal, creator and executive producer of the hit TV series “Everybody Loves Raymond,” sets off to Russia on a mission to translate “Raymond” into “Everybody Loves Kostya” in what marks his feature film directorial debut.
Synopsis: EXPORTING RAYMOND tells the hilarious journey of Phil Rosenthal, considered an expert in his country having created one of the most popular television shows of all time, who travels to a foreign land to help people who don’t seem to want his help. When Rosenthal joins forces with Hollywood studio Sony Pictures Television to recreate “Everybody Loves Raymond” for Russian TV audiences as “Everybody Loves Kostya,” he finds himself lost in Moscow, lost in his mission, lost in translation. Rosenthal tries to connect with his Russian colleagues but runs into unique characters and situations that conspire to drive him insane. The movie is a true international adventure, a genuine, “fish out of water” comedy that could only exist in real life.
EXPORTING RAYMOND hits theaters April 29, 2011!
