Roadside Attractions has released a trailer for Lake Bell‘s comedy, In a World…  Bell stars as Carol, a voiceover actress who feels marginalized both by the sexism in her profession and the success of her father (Fred Melamed), who is famous in the voiceover profession.  When I saw the film at Sundance, I enjoyed it despite some glaring flaws, and this trailer gives an idea of what a better movie would have looked like.  It streamlines the themes and the plot of the picture, and wisely leaves out the distracting subplot involving Carol’s sister Dani (Michaela Watkins) and her boyfriend Moe (Rob Corddry).

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars Ken Marino, Lucy Punch, Nick Offerman, Eva Longoria,, and Demetri MartinIn a World… opens in limited release on August 9th.

Here’s the official synopsis for In a World…:

Carol Solomon, a young female voice coach, joins the all-male race to land the white-hot new trailer of a blockbuster trilogy, and with it lay claim to the legendary trailer catchphrase “In a world .” In doing so, she must battle ingrained industry sexism, ridiculously self-important competitors and even her own father, Sam Sotto, a legendary voice-over artist who can’t bring himself to recognize his daughter’s talent.
