The first trailer for the indie comedy Robot and Frank has been released.  The buddy comedy stars Frank Langella as a retired jewel thief who seeks to resume his criminal ways with the help of a companion robot, voiced by Peter Sarsgaard.  Steve and Matt caught the film at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and both of them thought it was great (you can read Matt’s review here).  The trailer definitely seems sweet and warm-hearted, but I wonder if they’ve revealed too much of the plot.  I sincerely hope that’s not the case, as the premise sounds neat and I’m eager to experience the film for myself.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  You can read Steve’s interviews with director Jake Schreier and screenwriter Christopher D. Ford, as well as Langella himself.  The film also stars Susan Sarandon, James Marsden, and Liv TylerRobot and Frank opens on August 24th.
