More SXSW video! Today we have a theatrical trailer and red carpet interviews from the South by Southwest Film Festival premiere of SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED. It's a dramedy about time travel... sort of. This was a film that immediately intrigued me with its concept (as I repetitively tell my interviewees), and was definitely a big buzz film for the festival... and with a cool cast like this, one could easily see why.
I got a chance to talk to stars Jake Johnson (21 JUMP STREET, THE NEW GIRL), Karan Soni, Mark Duplass (THE LEAGUE) and Aubrey Plaza (PARKS AND RECREATION), plus director Colin Trevorrow and writer/producer Derek Connolly. Check out the red carpet interviews here, shot by the always intrepid Ric Mulligan:
And to give you a taste of what to expect from the film itself, check out the newly released theatrical trailer below, just under the official synopsis... watch it and just try to tell me you're not intrigued.
From the producers of Little Miss Sunshine – When an unusual classified ad inspires three cynical Seattle magazine employees to look for the story behind it, they discover a mysterious eccentric named Kenneth, a likable but paranoid supermarket clerk, who believes hes solved the riddle of time travel and intends to depart again soon.
