Brigsby Bear Trailer

"Try to imagine a hero…" Sony Classics has debuted the second trailer for indie film Brigsby Bear, one of the breakout hits of the Sundance Film Festival this year. This full-length trailer gives away most of the film (so watch out), but it's still a great trailer. Brigsby Bear stars Kyle Mooney (from SNL) as a kid who has grown up 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. The full 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 review) and it's an excellent film, most of all because it's a lover letter to the power of storytelling. I hope people take a moment to go see this.

Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Dave McCary's Brigsby Bear, direct from YouTube:

You can still watch the first teaser trailer for Brigsby Bear here, for a different look at the footage.

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!

  • And now I'm bummed, because the first trailer lead me to believe it was going to be a quirky character study in a post-apocalyptic wasteland and instead, it's a bomb shelter kid paint-by-numbers fish out of water story. I was going to rush out to the theater to see this, but now, Netflix it is.
    • Nooooo!! See it in theaters! It's great! Really, it is.
      • Alright, alright Alex, I'll give it the ol' college try. However, if I'm right, I will lord this over you FOR-EV-VER. FOR-EV-VER....

      Bait and switch, a bit. But I would have some faith in AB!

    BRIGSBY BEAR looks like it will be one of the better films of the year. It has been said before but comedic actors are some of the finest actors we have. They can play off humor, which is the hardest of all the skills, so naturally, they can be awesome at dramatic performances.

    Pity, there has to be some media, you tube stuff in there? He has to be famous and well accepted on the end, huh? Pity, I say ...
    • Nah. Don't judge this until you see it... Really wonderful film.
      • shiboleth
        I don't think it's bad, not at all. I just think that it would be better as a character study without dragging him into media. With that, this is also film about film or media industry making beautiful films for all us and we must admire to that, too I see that to be kinda unnecessary. ...

    Kyle Mooney is the shit. He has an odd approach to comedy, but I like it. Been a fan since he was just uploading silly videos with his friends on youtube. Can't wait for this, and I'm glad he got to do it.
