An incendiary political satire from British cult comedy icon Chris Morris.

Morris (director of Four Lions 2010 and creator of Brass Eye 1997–2001) teams up with Jesse Armstrong (co-writer of Peep Show 2003–15) for this ferocious take-down of American homeland security. Anna Kendrick stars as FBI agent Kendra Glack, who is tasked with bringing in wannabe revolutionary preacher Moses Al Shabaz (newcomer Marchánt Davis) on trumped-up terrorism charges. The only problem: Moses leads an ‘army’ of four in Florida, with no money and a strict aversion to weapons. The Day Shall Come is a pointed and profane black comedy that excoriates political paranoia and incompetence.
