Indie Trailer Sunday: Matthew Broderick in Wonderful World
I don't know how Matthew Broderick lost all of his star power, but he's showing up in a lot of new indies recently. I still love the guy, but it's a little odd seeing him in so many of these. Apple recently debuted the trailer for Joshua Goldin's Wonderful World starring Matthew Broderick, Jodelle Ferland, and Michael K. Williams. It looks like a combination of The Visitor and Brothers, where an apathetic guy gets a taste of culture from a new housemate and starts to fall in love with her, too. It doesn't look bad, but it doesn't look that great either. I may check it out, because I like Broderick, but I'm not sure. What do you guys think?

Wonderful World is both written and directed by screenwriter-turned-director Joshua Goldin, who co-wrote the Darkman and Out on a Limb scripts previously. This first premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year and has played at a few other film festivals. It was shot in 2007 in Shreveport, Louisiana. Magnolia Pictures is bringing Wonderful World to limited theaters starting on January 8th, 2010 in a few months.
