Watch: First Trailer for David Cross' Internet Fame Comedy 'Hits'

January 5, 2015


If the endless rise and fall of internet celebrities has you continually shaking your head, then "Arrested Development" star David Cross might have the comedy for you. The comedian makes his feature directing and writing debut with Hits, a film that premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival nearly a year ago, and skewers the concept of internet celebrity. Matt Walsh ("Veep") plays a man whose City Hall rant goes viral online, and his 15 minutes of fame begins. But soon everyone wants to ride that wave to their own fame. Michael Cera and Amy Sedaris also star in the film, which doesn't look great, but could be funny.

Here's the first trailer for David Cross' Hits from Honora (via SplitSider):

Hits is written and directed by David Cross ("Arrested Development," "Mr. Show with Bob & David"). The comedy follows a paranoid municipal worker named Dave (Matt Walsh), his "The Voice"–obsessed 19-year-old daughter, a wannabe teenage rapper who has an unrequited crush on the daughter, and their neighbors in a small, working-class town in upstate New York. Dave finds fame when videos of his rants at City Hall go viral, and hordes of appallingly well-meaning hipsters from Brooklyn descend on their town to make sure Dave's rights aren't trampled by "the man." Michael Cera, Amy Sedaris, Wyatt Cenac and David Koechner also star in the film which doesn't have a US release date yet, but may get released on BitTorrent.
