Jerky Steve Carell & Cool Sam Rockwell in 'Way, Way Back' Trailer
After debuting at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the directorial debut from The Descendants writers and comedy actors Jim Rash and Nat Faxon has debuted a trailer. The Way, Way Back has quite an impressive cast including Steve Carell, Toni Collettte, Sam Rockwell, Maya Rudolphs, Allison Janney, Rob Corddry and Amanda Peet. But the film's star is Liam James, as he struggles with adolescence, but stumbles upon the greatest summer of his life while on a trip with his mother (Collette) and prickish potential step-father (Carell). This was a real treat to see at Sundance (read my review here) and it could be the crowd-pleasing indie hit of the year, so don't miss it. Watch the trailer!
Here's the first trailer for Nat Faxon and Jim Rash's The Way, Way Back, originally from Apple:
The Way, Way Back is written and directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (The Descendants). The film follows the coming-of-age story of 14-year-old Duncan's (Liam James) summer vacation with his mother (Toni Collette), her overbearing boyfriend (Steve Carell), and his daughter Steph (Zoe Levin). Having a rough time fitting in, the introverted Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen (Sam Rockwell), manager of the Water Wizz water park. Through his funny, clandestine friendship with Owen, Duncan slowly opens up and begins to find his place in the world. Fox Searchlight releases the film this summer July 5th. Good?
