Sweet Trailer…'The Company Men'

Here’s a movie I’ve been looking forward to for a while now. Previously we posted the teaser (well teaser as in it was sapmle footage used to find a distributor) but even then it looked pretty awesome. So now that the official trailer is here (and the Weinstein Company has picked it up) this will be released in select theaters this Fall. Have a watch; slight heart-warming hokiness and bad accents abound but it looks good to me!

The Company Men is a John Wells film about ‘corporate downsizing’ where Chris Cooper, Tommy Lee Jones and Ben Affleck play 3 such downsized employees. Affleck’s character looses his job and gets work in construction from his brother-in-law Kevin Costner.  Tommy Lee will play a senior partner in Affleck’s firm and the story focuses primarily on how this affects their families.

I’ve never been fond of Affleck but this looks like something I’ll thoroughly enjoy. Also this year seems to be big for Affleck considering he’ll be in this and a the bank robbing movie The Town. But who am I kidding, I’m seeing this for Costner. The Company Men hits limited theaters on October 22nd this Fall. How does this look to you all?

    I am actually excited to see this movie for the fact that I am currently unemployed. I know that this movie may be hard for people to enjoy if they are going through this sort of thing but I think it is great to see this type of movie being made.

      I’ve been down that road before too, but while it’s been a long time since then, those days in limbo (as uneventful as they are) can be pretty memorable. I’m very interested to see this.
