Must Watch: John Wells' The Company Men Theatrical Trailer
The Weinstein Company has unveiled the theatrical trailer for The Company Men, the incredibly bleak corporate-downsizing drama written/directed by John Wells. The film stars a bevy of great actors, lead by Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner, Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Cooper, Maria Bello and Rosemarie DeWitt. I saw this at Sundance and really enjoyed it, despite being quite bleak and depressing. Brandon reviewed it and gave it 9 out of 10. This trailer definitely stays away from the bleaker side of things, but it's a fantastic trailer, I love the music and build up. I really hope this gets a few of you to see it. And ohhh Rosemarie DeWitt, love her!

It centers on a year in the life of three men (Affleck, Jones, Cooper) trying to survive a round of corporate downsizing at a major company - and how that affects them, their families, and their local communities.
The Company Men is both written & directed by Emmy-award winning filmmaker John Wells, who's making his feature directorial debut after working on numerous TV shows like "ER" and "The West Wing". This is an original story crafted by Wells. It first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and is being distributed by The Weinstein Company. The Company Men arrives in limited theaters this October 22nd.
