Cooper Hoffman plays a young actor making his way into the industry while falling in love, while Bradley Cooper essays a film producer. The trailer has David Bowie’s Life on Mars? on the soundtrack, adding to the nostalgic, feel-good vibe.

The title is inspired from Licorice Pizza, a chain of record stores in Southern California that was known for its licorice, music albums and magazines.

Licorice Pizza is Anderson’s ninth feature, following critically-acclaimed successes such as There Will Be Blood, The Master and Phantom Thread.

The film, which initially had a working title of Soggy Bottom, is set to have a limited release on November 26 and expand nationwide on December 25, according to Variety.
