"Laurels. Super awesome." Here comes our first look at the next potential indie comedy breakout hit? Fox Searchlight has debuted the official trailer on Apple for Miguel Arteta's Cedar Rapids - an indie comedy starring Ed Helms as a hometown insurance agent who's never left the town he grew up in until he finally went on a trip to the biggest city he's ever been to - Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Ohhh yes this looks oh so fun. It's premiering at Sundance in January and I can't wait to see it. The supporting cast includes John C. Reilly, Sigourney Weaver, Alia Shawkat, Anne Heche, Rob Corddry, Thomas Lennon and others. Watch it below!

Cedar Rapids is directed by Puerto Rican filmmaker Miguel Arteta, of indie flicks Chuck & Buck, The Good Girl and Youth in Revolt previously. The screenplay was written by newcomer Phil Johnston, of A Thousand Words, Flightless Birds and Ghosts/Aliens previously. Fox Searchlight produced and is distributing the film, which will be premiering at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival in January. Cedar Rapids will then hit limited theaters starting on February 11th, 2011 after the fest. I definitely can't wait to see this! What about you?
