"Well the thing is, you're just in the middle of the beginning right now." Roadside Attractions has debuted an official trailer for Miranda July's The Future, the quirky indie about a couple who decide to get a cat that premiered at Sundance to quite a bit of acclaim, including a glowing review from Ethan. The film has a very Charlie Kaufman feel to it and I'm sure anyone who watches this trailer will be saying "what the…?" half of the time. Yea, there's a talking cat, some weird meta interpersonal ideas and plenty more. Miranda July also stars as Sophie along with Hamish Linklater as her husband and it's quite a ride. Have fun with this!

The Future tells the story of a thirty-something couple who, on deciding to adopt a stray cat, change their perspective on life, literally altering the course of time and testing their faith in each other and themselves.
The Future is directed by American indie filmmaker Miranda July, of the 2005 film Me and You and Everyone We Know previously. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year where it was picked up by Roadside Attractions for release. They will be bringing The Future to limited theaters starting on July 29th this summer. Anyone interested in it? Visit the official website: thefuturethefuture.com.

I enjoyed You, Me and Everyone We Know. But I just realized all Miranda July films are the same and she is not as talented as everyone seems to believe. Plus the talking cat thing is annoying. Pass.

All Miranda July films are the same? You mean...You, Me and Everyone We Know?

Looks good, I like the bit about being 35 and at 40 your life is over, it's a sad comment on society, pretty much after 25 and it's over. People should get get vaporised like in Logan's Run. By the looks of it they showed the lady having an affair? That was a bit of pain as it seems a big turn, but maybe I'm just traila hating that beeeeooooootch. I'll defo check it with ma binoculars at the drive in.

The Cat was quite annoying. And seemingly pointless. Do I have to be from Seattle to appreciate this? Lol, joke. It looks interesting-- but yeah, that fucking cat.

I loved You, Me and Everyone We Know, so I'm so in. I love interesting perspectives or not so awkward interpretations of life.
