And now the trailer for Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World with Carrell and Knightley

Feb. 9, 2012by:

Well, we brought you the poster earlier today and now we have a trailer for SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley. This must be one of those days as I keep seeing and hearing about projects that are highly intriguing and have been in production for quite a while. With so much stuff out there it's easy to slip by some of it. The film is written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, who wrote the screenplay for NICK AND NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST.

Check out the trailer below:

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say they probably fall in love just in time for the asteroid to hit. Unless Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck are done saying their "I Love You's" and blow that f*cker apart and everyone gets to live happily ever after.

There's a few sells for me on this one; Carrell is a totally likeable actor/comedian and I'm glad to see he isn't embodying Michael Scott in every post-Office (...) role he gets. I'm already in love with Knightley, so there's that. Otherwise, it looks like a really fun exploration of the "last days," and I think we have plenty "Debby Downer" flicks with apocolyptic themes already out there.

Let's call it a "Pre-Apocolyptic" love story, shall we? Anyways, it looks fun and could be a good middle-ground date movie for the summer. A lot less painful than a TWILIGHT film.  Or a root canal.  SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF WORLD arrives June 22nd, 2012, so you have plenty of time to see it before the REAL end of the world in December.

Extra Tidbit: The world is ending tomorrow. You can only watch ONE movie. What's it gonna be?

Looks boring

For a massive-scale plot, this trailer makes the film look like it's done on a shoe-string budget. Maybe it's a bad trailer, but it's hard to really get interested in the scenario at all. And though I love Carell, I'm tired of seeing him as the woebegone simpleton.

Scary thing is if this really happens, only Newt Gingrich's moon base will save us.

2 road trip asteroid movies in the same year?

Crazy coincidence. But, I bet there won't be a giant chick in Steve Carell's movie

This long ass title reminds me

of lyrics from a Chris Cornell song practically of the same name. I actually like Carell better in dramatic over some of his comedy roles...Brick aside, of course.

This looks great. Hell, when the world is ending, I think a lot of those rom-com scenarios immediately become a lot more plausible, just because in a limited frame of time, what else are you gonna do?
I'd have to think of a movie I haven't seen in a long time and still love. Mind you, that's if I run out of other things to do, like saying goodbye to loved ones and enjoying my last sunset or star-gazing. You know, all that stuff I sort of take for granted because the world isn't coming to an

The movie looks good! Plus Keira Knightley is in it!
Extra Tidbit: That's the hardest question ever for a movie fan!

And another thing

This looks like the most interesting take on "The End of the World" I've seen out of Hollywood, ever. Not that it's a comedy, but dealing with how some people throw caution to the wind and others pretend nothing has changed- because in a way it hasn't- or has it? Very interesting concept.

Re: Tidbit

I'm not watching any movies. Any movie I'd watch for nostalgic purposes I have memorized anyway- though for the record they'd be The Red Balloon, original Doctor Dolittle, Mary Poppins, Willy Wonka,The Big Lebowski, West Side Story, the Rock, Point Break and....that's it. I think..Oy. Don't make me choose!!!!

Looks like fun. There seems to be a new trend of "end of the world" movies, but I'm liking the different takes on it.

Love what I'm seeing

Looks sweet, maybe even with some genre shift moments? Plus, Knightley is always a bonus in my book.

As for the Extra Tidbit, "Dr.Strangelove, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb."
