Steve Carell and Keira Knightley are Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012) Movie Poster

No, it’s not a gritty, action-packed post-apocalyptic, end-of-the-world movie where one man races to save his estranged wife and child as the world comes apart around him. One look at the poster will pretty much tell you that there will be no outrageous CG shots of exploding buildings and rising oceans. Plus, it stars Steve Carell. And Keira Knightley. So, one of those happy-go-lucky road movie with an asteroid on the way? Sounds about right.

As an asteroid nears Earth, a man finds himself alone after his wife leaves in a panic. He decides to take a road trip to reunite with his high school sweetheart. Accompanying him is a neighbor who inadvertently puts a wrench in his plan.

Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria (“Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist”), the comedy stars Keira Knightley, Steve Carell, Melanie Lynskey, Patton Oswalt, Adam Brody, Connie Britton, T.J. Miller, and Gillian Jacobs.

First poster below. A trailer is apparently expected later today. We’ll update when it shows up.
