Lorene Scafaria’s “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World” looks like the kind of movie that would make for a good watch if you’re not in too much of a hurry. It’s probably the only end-of-the-world movie where you should only watch if you have some free time. That’s the vibe I’m getting from the film, anyway. The movie doesn’t open until later this month, but until then, check out three clips and a behind-the-scenes featurette from the film.
Set in a too-near future, a man searches for a meaningful connection as humanity’s last days are at hand. Can he find his greatest love at the worst possible time? As the respective journeys of Dodge (Steve Carell) and Penny (Keira Knightley) converge, the two spark to each other and their outlooks – if not the world’s – brighten.
Starring Steve Carell, Keira Knightley, Connie Britton, Adam Brody, Rob Corddry, Derek Luke, Melanie Lynskey, William Petersen, Gillian Jacobs, T.J. Miller, Patton Oswalt, Bob Stephenson, Mark Moses, and directed by Lorene Scafaria.
The end comes June 22, 2012.
