Upcoming Movies – Seeking a Friend for the End of the World
(Opening Date: June 22, 2012)


Having just started to go through the US version of The Office, it is somewhat of a coincidence for me that a trailer for a new Steve Carell movie should pop up today. Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is directed by Lorene Scafaria, whose biggest accomplishment so far is to write the screenplay for Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist. This is her first directing credit. Check out the trailer below.

We all know Steve Carell as a great comedic talent, but he often is better than the actual movie in which he stars (Evan Almighty, Date Night, Get Smart,  etc.) This one is going in a different direction than his usual comedy stylings though. He still playing a nebbishy guy, but the tone here is not buffoonish slapstick. There looks to be some genuine sweetness here. Whether it goes sappy or not, only time will tell, but I am looking forward to this one.

And of course it’s always good to see the under rated Keira Knightley, she always brightens up a movie. Oh, and Patton Oswalt!

Tomatometer Rating Guess: 72%
(Current Tomatoemeter Rating is 54%. Ouch, quite far off that time.)
