I you were given the news that in just three weeks, a plotline straight out of Armageddon and/or Deep Impact was hurtling from deep space on a collision course with Earth, and that all life would be eradicated in just 21 days, what would you do? Loot, cry, watch TV, go back to work, party for three weeks straight? It’s a question that’s humorously answered in the trailer for quirky road movie/ romantic comedy, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, in which Steve Carrell and Keira Knightly go on a road trip to find their respective loved ones before the apocalypse.
Check out the new trailer, as it’s far more charming than any rom-com has a right to be:
Not bad, eh? With names like Carrell, Adam Brody, Rob Corddry, Gillian Jacobs (Community), and Patton Oswalt attached, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World has a killer comedic cast married to what looks to be a rather clever spin on the tired “a meteor is coming to wipe out all life on earth” storyline.
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World was written and directed by Lorene Scafaria (the writer behind Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) and hits theaters on June 22.
What do you think of the trailer?
