Safety Not Guaranteed Trailer Debuts

Safety Not Guaranteed Trailer Debuts

Imagine if Doc Brown had perfected his plutonium-powered, DeLorean-housed time machine, but had no Marty McFly to show it off to? He might well have turned to the wanted ads in a local newspaper to find someone nutty enough to accompany him on his planned trips around the time continuum. But how many people would think he was for real? Given the very palpable evidence of the car itself, we figure he’d have had an easier time of it than Kenneth (Mark Duplass), who places a similar lonely-hearts ad kicking off the plot of Sundance hit Safety Not Guaranteed. The trailer has arrived over at Apple.

Colin Treverrow directed the dark comedy based on Derek Connolly’s script, and the story expands to find Seattle magazine journalist Jeff (Jake Johnson) dragging two interns Darius (Aubrey Plaza) and Arnau (Karan Soni) into investigating Kenneth’s unusual claim, which includes the assertions that he’s done it once before, it’s not a joke and that anyone looking to volunteer should bring their own weapons.

Eventually, Darius gets closer to him, and learns more about Kenneth’s plan, including his tragic reasons for wanting to travel through time. Our own Damon Wise saw it at Sundance and liked it, so we’re hoping this could be one of those festival films that breaks out. Given that it’s from the producers of Little Miss Sunshine, it’s got a good chance…

The movie arrives in the US this June, but there’s no set UK release date yet. Still, you’ll get a chance to see it next month, as it’s part of the Sundance UK line-up.
