We are not quite a full year since Michael Grodner's film The Icarus Line Must Die premiered in Los Angeles at the Non Plussed Fest last July. We premiered the teaser back then and now we have a new trailer to share with you as well as news that The Icarus Line Must Die is returning to L.A. to begin its theatrical run on June 22nd.
