The first trailer for the dark comedy All Is Bright has been released online. Directed by Phil Morrison (Junebug), the film stars Paul Giamatti as an ex-con out on parole who, when faced with a dwindling job market, decides to go in with his ex-partner (Paul Rudd) and sell Christmas trees. This trailer highlights a bitingly dark comedic tone, and the chemistry between Rudd and Giamatti looks great. Hopefully the film is a winning entry in the “cynical Christmas movie” genre.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Sally Hawkins. Almost Christmas will be available VOD on September 10th and hits theaters on October 4th.

Here’s the synopsis for All Is Bright:
ALL IS BRIGHT is the story of two French Canadians who travel to New York City during the holiday season with a get-rich-quick scheme of selling Christmas trees. Dennis (Paul Giamatti) is a no-nonsense, recently released ex-con trying to get his life – and his wife – back. Rene (Paul Rudd) is Dennis’s charming, shallow, former partner-in-crime who is now living with Dennis’s estranged wife. Feeling guilty and knowing Dennis needs a job, Rene reluctantly agrees to make Dennis a partner in the scheme. Though the two former friends struggle with each other and an eclectic array of tough New York customers, they discover much about themselves in the process.
