The Kitchen x Mess in a Bottle

WARNER BROS. PICTURES TEAMS UP WITH T-SHIRT BRAND
“MESS IN A BOTTLE” FOR NEW COLLECTION CELEBRATING
THE FILM “THE KITCHEN”


(LOS ANGELES) – July 26, 2019 -- Warner Bros. Pictures has announced a partnership with the popular t-shirt brand Mess in a Bottle to create a special collection of shirts commemorating the August 9th release of the film The Kitchen, starring Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish and Elisabeth Moss.

The bespoke collection features a variety of short-sleeve t-shirts bearing uplifting affirmations inspired by the female-driven mob drama, which centers around three wives of gangsters in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen who continue their husbands’ criminal activities after they’re locked up in prison. Phrases like “Queen, don’t be afraid to rule like a king” and “I want it all” reflect the resilience and determination displayed by the women in The Kitchen.

“Similar to The Kitchen, Mess in a Bottle embraces the strength of women,” shares Kalilah Wright, owner and creative director at Mess in a Bottle, which was founded in 2015 to evoke change, question the status quo and provide a product that allows one to ‘wear their voice.’ “Women figure it out, make it happen and make no excuses. Our brand embodies this and the movie is a direct correlation to the power of women. This collection of shirts reminds us that you can be a mother, business owner and a woman in power.”
The custom collection will debut at a private screening of The Kitchen in Atlanta.

The Kitchen opens nationwide in theaters on August 9th. Watch the trailer here.

ABOUT THE KITCHEN
The gritty, female-driven mob drama The Kitchen, from New Line Cinema and BRON Creative, was written and directed by Andrea Berloff, who was nominated for an Oscar for the original screenplay for "Straight Outta Compton." The Kitchen stars Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy ("Can You Ever Forgive Me?" "Bridesmaids"), Tiffany Haddish ("Girls Trip"), and Elisabeth Moss ("The Handmaid's Tale") as three 1978 Hell's Kitchen housewives whose mobster husbands are sent to prison by the FBI.  Left with little but a sharp ax to grind, the ladies take the Irish mafia's matters into their own hands-proving unexpectedly adept at everything from running the rackets to taking out the competition...literally.
