TRAILER: Peter Coonan and Killian Scott Reunite for "Get Up and Go"

It's just like Fran and Tommy made up and became besties. 

Love/Hate stars Killian Scott and Fran Cooney have reunited on screen for highly-anticipated feature film Get Up & Go, due to arrive in Irish cinemas on Friday May 1st.

This trailer, which features music from the Irish group Villagers along with Light Heat and Grant Hart, is the first official glimpse of the Dublin-set film.

The setting and the cast may have commonalities with acclaimed-drama Love/Hate, but the tone is a major departure. Instead of gritty gangland violence, Scott and Coonan are flexing their acting muscle in a "hipster comedy".

The film chronicles an action-packed 24 hours in the lives of frustrated Dublin dreamers Alexander (Coonan) and Coilin (Scott). At the wrong end of their twenties and with their long-cherished hopes of artistic greatness disappearing in the rear view mirror, the lifelong friends attempt to  get their lives back on track while dealing with dwindling bank balances, irate girlfriends, and their worst enemies - each other.
