Watch This: Adam Scott & Brittany Snow in The Vicious Kind
Another indie film potentially lost in the mix. The first official trailer for The Vicious Kind has debuted over on YouTube (via SlashFilm). This stars a bittersweet Adam Scott (the male nurse from Knocked Up), a super sweet Brittany Snow (the hot blonde girl from Hairspray), and a freakin' sweet J.K. Simmons (who plays J. Jonah Jameson in Spider-Man). You probably haven't ever heard of this, but I suggest checking out the trailer, it doesn't look too bad. It seems kind of like an awkward mix of an indie drama and mumblecore comedy, but that could be a good thing. I think I'll check it out when I get the chance. What about you?

The bitter Caleb Sinclaire (Adam Scott) tries to warn his brother away from the new girlfriend (Brittany Snow) he brings home during Thanksgiving, but ends up becoming infatuated with her in the process.
The Vicious Kind is both written and directed by former Neil LaBute protege, filmmaker Lee Toland Krieger, of only the 2006 film December Ends previously. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year (in 2009). And it also just landed two Independent Spirit Awards nominations for Best Screenplay and Best Lead Actor. The Vicious Kind will be opening in very limited theaters starting on December 11th.

the name Caleb is really rare in movies isn't it? Adam Scott seems to be at his best here.

"It seems kind of like an awkward mix of an indie drama and mumblecore comedy..." Alex, you took the words right out of my mouth. No seriously though, this looks good.

They spelt exclusive wrong at the end of the trailer. Looks good, I'd pay to see it in cinemas.

Nice catch on the spelling error on "exclusive" in there. I wonder how that slipped by. The song is called "Song in? D" by Mock Orange, some good midwest guys.
