Lake Bell's Movie Trailer Voice Over Comedy 'In a World' Picked Up

February 21, 2013

In a World...

One of the films that didn't blow us away at Sundance, but offered a solid film full of jokes made just for cinephiles, was In a World… The film directed by actress Lake Bell follows a young female voice coach (Bell) as she joins the all-male race to land the white-hot new trailer of a blockbuster trilogy, and with it lay claim to the legendary trailer catchphrase “In a world…” She faces stuffy, douchebag competition in Ken Marino and even her own father (Fred Melamed), a legendary voice-over artist who can’t bring himself to recognize his daughter’s talent. It was a very charming, entertaining comedy and now it has distribution.

Roadside Attractions has just announced in a press release their acquisition of the film, which won Bell the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at Sundance earlier this year. Bell is joined by a great cast of comedians like Rob Corddry, Michaela Watkins, Nick Offerman, Demetri Martin and more. Bell says, "I’ve already been spoiled with my unforgettable experience at Sundance, but now, to be working with Roadside as well as Sony to release the film is an embarrassment of riches. I’m so honored they share my enthusiasm.” No word on a release date yet, but in the meantime, read my mostly positive review here.

I wish this title was used for a Don LaFontaine documentary instead of this.
