New trailer for John Krasinski's The Hollars w/ Anna Kendrick & Charlie Day

Y'know, it's hard not to like John Krasinksi. After watching him come into his own as Jim from The Office, Krasinski has been working to forge his own path in Hollywood, even being in contention for Captain America before Chris Evans took the shield. Earlier this year he took a great step forward in Michael Bay's 13 HOURS: THE SECRET SOLDIERS OF BENGHAZI (a highly underrated flick) and now his Sundance feature, THE HOLLARS, is making its way to theaters with a really solid line-up of actors involved, including Anna Kendrick, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Richard Jenkins, Margo Martindale, and Sharlto Copley. That's a great line-up for your first one out the door and today we have our first look at the trailer for the comedy/drama.

Here's the synopsis:

John Hollar, a struggling NYC artist is forced to navigate the small middle-American town he left behind when news of his mother's illness brings him home. Back in the house he grew up in, John is immediately swept up in the problems of his dysfunctional family, high school rival, and an over-eager ex-girlfriend as he faces impending fatherhood with his girlfriend in New York.

It's seems like a lot of filmmakers start off with these smaller, hometown-type flicks to get the ball rolling (much like Zach Braff's GARDEN STATE) and this looks like a pleasant enough pill to swallow. Bumbray saw it at Sundance and seemed to enjoy it (his review HERE), but noted that it may be just a little too heavy on the comedy in many parts, but with some great performances within. The trailer certainly gives that vibe and I'm intrigued to continue watching "the rise of Jim from The Office" both as a filmmaker and an actor. He's definitely got the potential to climb the ladder and deliver some great work with the right material. But, hey, that goes for everyone in the Hollywood trenches. Regardless, this seems like a step in the right direction for him.

THE HOLLARS opens on August 26th, 2016.

Anna Kendrick is in everything

Seems like she has a new movie hitting theatres or VOD every other month.

This looks pretty good. I find indie-comedies can be pretty by the numbers sometimes (in terms of stories anyways). They usually come down to the jokes and actors delivering them. So seeing the cast of this movie and some of the comedy on display, looks like a decent way to spend a few hours.

Good for him. I always like it when actors are able to see success outside roles they've become so defined by.

Also, side note for Paul or the editorial staff: Krasinski's directorial debut was 2009's "Brief Interviews With Hideous Men", which was also at Sundance that year. Haven't seen it personally but it seems like it wasn't received very well at all, so I'm not surprised it's been forgotten/not mentioned.

Thanks for the heads up! I corrected it above and, yeah, for some reason I thought that one was a short, but you're correct.
