"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!

A naive Midwesterner insurance agent travels to a big-city convention in an effort to save his co-workers.
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?

Ok..this is one of these times that i truly believe that all previous comments are totally, utterly and downright phony (not to mention the trailer presentation...). They are more fake than Bush's reasoning about the existence of WMD's in Iraq. Gives you a proper idea to what extent people will go to sell you something. Now..if these comments are indeed true, then i'm afraid they are all in a very bad taste.

Wow Majestic. You can't just say "I won't see this movie.", "Doesn't look good to me." or anything like that? You had to step on everyone's comments and own opinions. I actually thought it was funny and has an interesting cast that made me want to keep a look out for this movie.

Looks hilarious!! It's about time John C. Reilly got back on the comedy horse, cuz Talladega Nights was boring... #14 = Perfect Jerk.

Kinda' feel like I've seen all of the funny parts and, well, they weren't all that funny.

I like this trailer. Gives me good feelings in my body. I know its been said, but the Omar stuff was excellent.
Cracky on Dec 25, 2010
Looks good but that trailer showed the whole movie.

# 1 said it all! I would have had enough with John C. Reilly!

Honestly, this really looks pretty "meh." I only chuckled once, at the Omar reference, because that guy was so good in The Wire as the sleazy corrupt senator. "Sheeeeeeeeeeeeiiiiit"
