The first trailer is now online for Lee Kirk’s quirky romantic comedy The Giant Mechanical Man. It tells of the oft under-represented love story of a zoo worker and a street performer who are both seeking meaning in this crazy world of ours. The Giant Mechanical Man stars Jenna Fischer, Chris Messina, Malin Akerman, Lucy Punch and a hilariously douchey Topher Grace. You can see what Fischer had to say about the movie, which was directed by her husband, in this interview here. Hit the jump to check out the synopsis and the trailer. 

Check out the synopsis below, followed by the trailer:

THE GIANT MECHANICAL MAN is an offbeat romantic comedy about two outsiders — a misunderstood street performer (Chris Messina) and the soft spoken zoo worker who falls for him. Akerman will play Fischer’s well-meaning sister who pushes her towards dating a pompous motivational speaker, played by Topher Grace.
