First Trailer for Patton Oswalt's 'Big Fan' Football Indie
The first trailer for the Sundance film Big Fan starring Patton Oswalt and both written and directed by Robert D. Siegel has debuted on Yahoo today. The story follows a hardcore football fan who gets beat up by his favorite player and must deal with the consequences. This actually looks a lot better as a trailer than I remember it being. Siegel's writing may have been fine, but his directing was completely amateur (read my review). I may still give this another shot when it hits theaters to see if Siegel has tweaked it at all since Sundance. Anyway, give it a shot, I expect a few of you may end up liking this indie a lot. Check this out!

Big Fan is both written and directed by first-time filmmaker Robert D. Siegel, who's only previously credits are as screenwriter of The Onion Movie and Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler. This film first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, but it didn't get picked up for distribution until April. First Independent Pictures will be bringing Big Fan to very limited theaters starting on August 28th this fall.
