Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck's 'It's Kind of a Funny Story' Trailer
Focus Features has debuted the official trailer (on Yahoo) for It's Kind of a Funny Story, starring Keir Gilchrist and Zach Galifianakis, directed by Half Nelson's Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. Although I was at first thrown off from the first look photos by the fact that this is not actually a comedy, as expected, it still looks pretty damn good. Boden and Fleck are great filmmakers and I love seeing them approach a story like this that looks like it ends up having quite a bit of heart and charm to it in the end. This also features great appearances by Emma Roberts, Aasif Mandvi, Viola Davis and even Jeremy Davies. Watch below and enjoy!
