After premiering last year at the 2022 Fantasia Film Festival, Relax, I'm from the Future is finally getting a U.S. release date.

The film is centered on Casper, a hapless time traveler who bumps into a cynical opportunist named Holly, who uses his knowledge of the future in a series of get-rich-quick schemes.  However, their actions put them in the crosshairs of a more competent time traveler who isn't opposed to using lethal force.

Rhys Darby (Flight of the Concords, Our Flag Means Death) and Gabrielle Graham (On the Basis of Sex, 21 Thunder) lead the pic, which will hit select North American theaters on September 22, 2023.

The sci-fi comedy is actually inspired by a short film of the same name that premiered a decade earlier at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

Zachary Bennett (The Umbrella Academy,  Jekyll + Hyde) played the lead role in the original short, and returns in a supporting role.  Julian Richings (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Chaos Walking) and Janine Theriault (Bellevue, Degrassi: The Next Generation) also join Bennett in supporting roles.

Luke Higginson wrote and directed the short and also handled the same duties for the full theatrical version.

Higginson previously told Deadline, “[I'm] so excited for audiences across the US to see this film! Rhys Darby is the funniest man on the planet and Gabrielle Graham is gonna be a star. I can’t wait for everyone to meet Casper and Holly.”

Producers Doiron and Van der Woerd added, “The comedic chemistry between Rhys Darby and Gabrielle Graham in Relax is electric. We at Wango are thrilled to be partnering with Blue Fox Entertainment to bring this charming gem of a film to audiences across the US.”

Check out the trailer below and let us know if you'll be checking out Relax, I'm from the Future in theaters.

Relax, I'm from the Future follows Casper, a charming, but embarrassingly underprepared Time Traveler, now trapped in the past. When he befriends Holly, a jaded drifter, she helps him exploit his trivial knowledge of the future for a series of quick payouts, oblivious to the consequences they have set in motion. When Doris, a more competent Time Traveler, tracks them down, Casper and Holly are forced to figure out exactly what they mean to each other and whether the future they’ve threatened is even worth saving. Will they embrace their fate, or do they have the courage to change it?
