Brigsby Bear Trailer

"May our minds be stronger tomorrow." Sony Classics has revealed the first trailer for indie film Brigsby Bear, one of the breakout hits of the Sundance Film Festival this year. The film stars Kyle Mooney (from SNL) as a kid who has grown up locked in an underground bunker, watching one and only one TV show over-and-over - called Brigsby Bear. One day everything stops, and he has to deal with the real world. That's all I'll say, because this film is best experienced without knowing much more than that. The cast includes Mark Hamill, Greg Kinnear, Claire Danes, Ryan Simpkins, Andy Samberg, Michaela Watkins, Jane Adams, and Chance Crimin. The film played at Sundance and Cannes (read my glowing review) and it's a special film, for many reasons, but most of all it's a lover letter to the power of storytelling. Enjoy.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Dave McCary's Brigsby Bear, originally from Mashable:

Brigsby Bear Adventures is a children's TV show produced for an audience of one: James (Kyle Mooney). When the show abruptly ends, James's life changes forever, and he sets out to finish the story himself. Brigsby Bear is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Dave McCary, making his feature directorial debut after working as a director/writer for SNL and directing many comedic short films as well. The screenplay is co-written by Kyle Mooney and Kevin Costello. The film first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year (read our review), and it also played at the Cannes Film Festival in the Critics' Week sidebar. Sony Pictures Classics will open Brigsby Bear in select theaters starting July 28th this summer. Watch this film!
