(Black PR Wire) LOS ANGELES -- 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 New Line Cinema 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 women in New York City's Hell's Kitchen who take business into their own hands when their gangster husbands are sent to 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.


"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 this collection of shirts reminds us that you can be a mother, business owner and a woman in power."


The custom collection debuted at a private Atlanta screening of The Kitchen, hosted by Kandi Burruss earlier this week. Preview the collection here.


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



Mess in a Bottle is an independently owned apparel company run by accomplished designer and trained architect, Kalilah Wright. The concept is based on a form of communication dating as far back as 310 B.C. when messages were placed in bottles and released into a large body of water. Mess in a Bottle is the 21st-century form of communication-spreading emotional, thought-provoking and expressive MESSages all over the world.



The gritty, female-driven mob drama The Kitchen, written and directed by Oscar nominee Andrea Berloff (screenplay, Straight Outta Compton) follows 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.


The film stars Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss, Domhnall Gleeson, James Badge Dale, Brian d'Arcy James, with Margo Martindale, Common and Bill Camp. Written and directed by Andrea Berloff, based on the comic book series created for DC Vertigo by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle, it was produced by Michael De Luca and Marcus Viscidi. Executive producers were Richard Brener, Michael Disco, Dave Neustadter, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth, Elishia Holmes and Adam Schlagman. Maryse Alberti was director of photography; Shane Valentino, production designer; Christopher Tellefsen, editor; Sarah Edwards, costume designer; and Bryce Dessner, composer.
