Must Watch: Official Trailer for Greg Mottola's Adventureland
Miramax has unveiled the trailer for Greg Mottola's Adventureland, a coming-of-age comedy about a recent college grad who takes a nowhere job at a local amusement park. The film is actually based on the real life experiences of director Greg Mottola, who got his big break last year directing Superbad. I've been looking forward to Adventureland for a while and I must say the trailer delivers. It looks exactly like the kind of wonderful coming-of-age comedy I need to warm my spirits given I've been let down by so many comedies recently. Plus I'm a big fan of Jesse Eisenberg and he looks great as this lead in this, too.

Adventureland is both written and directed by filmmaker Greg Mottola, of The Daytrippers and Superbad previously. The story is based on Mottola's own experience working at the Adventureland Amusement Park in Long Island. Miramax is debuting Adventureland in theaters everywhere on April 3rd this year.
