FilmDistrict has released a trailer and poster for Colin Trevorrow‘s indie comedy Safety Not Guaranteed. The movie stars Aubrey Plaza as a magazine intern who goes undercover to investigate a man (Mark Duplass) who placed an ad looking for a time-traveling partner. The movie was based on a real newspaper ad that was passed around the Internet in 2005. I caught the film at Sundance and thought it was slight but still charming and funny. The trailer goes a bit too far in revealing the plot, but it also shows that Plaza can absolutely kill in a lead role.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster. The film also stars Jake Johnson and Karan Soni. Safety Not Guaranteed opens June 8th.
