According to the Mayan calendar 2012 is meant to be the year the world ends. We’ve been watching planet Earth go to poop for decades and audiences have become almost immune to concept. A twist on the genre has appeared courtesy of the new trailer for ‘Seeking a Friend for the End of the World’.
It’s a light comedic take on the end of days starring Steve Carell and Kiera Knightly. Not the best comedic pairing but the trailer is great and the supporting cast boasts Patton Oswalt, Connie Britton, Gillian Jacobs and Rob Corddry. It’s written and directed by ‘Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist’ scribe Lorene Scafaria and looks like a lot of fun with a light dash of heart and a giant asteroid heading toward Earth.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer.
‘Seeking a Friend for the End of the World’ doesn’t have an Australian release date but is released on the US on 22 June 2012.
