Trailer for Women in Trouble Sequel, Elektra Luxx
02.01.11 by Ryan
Writer-director Sebastian Gutierrez's 2009 dramedy Women in Trouble perhaps didn't seem like the first installment of a trilogy to the select few that bothered to see it, but that's precisely what it is. The first sequel, Elektra Luxx, again stars Carla Gugino as the title character, a pregnant porn star, as she leaves the adult film industry and ends up in more misadventures.
A new trailer has been released for Elektra Luxx, which will premiere on March 11 at the South by Southwest Film Festival. Timothy Olyphant, Adrianne Palicki, and Emmanuelle Chriqui co-star.
Here's the official synopsis below.
Recently retired from the adult film industry, superstar Elektra Luxx (Carla Gugino) is pregnant with the child of late rock star Nick Chapel. She is trying to make ends meet by teaching a community college sex education class aimed at housewives when a figure from her past, flight attendant Cora (Marley Shelton), approaches her with a proposition. In exchange for the (stolen) lyrics to Nick Chapel's last record, all of which is about Elektra, Cora needs Elektra to seduce her fiancee. Elektra reluctantly agrees to do this favor, setting in motion a series of hilarious events which will see her come face to face with detectives, sex bloggers, emotionally unstable neighbors and the Virgin Mary herself as she wrestles with the prospect of motherhood and tries to become a person of substance.
If Elektra Luxx seems like the movie for you, Gutierrez is planning a third, titled Women in Ecstasy, which will likely find more situations for Gugino to appear in mostly naked.
