The first trailer for Submarine has gone online. I caught the film at Sundance and thought it was delightful debut for writer-director Richard Ayoade. While the trailer presents the film as slightly twee and reminiscent of Wes Anderson, it still does a good job of selling the film’s humor without spoiling too many of the jokes.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Submarine stars Paddy Considine, Noah Taylor, Sally Hawkins, Craig Roberts, and Yasmin Paige. The film opens in the UK on March 18th. There’s currently no release date set for the U.S. but The Weinstein Company will handle North American distribution.
Trailer via the film’s Facebook page.
Here’s a brief synopsis:
The producers of Warp Films (This Is England, Four Lions) and actor and director Richard Ayoade (IT Crowd) present a comedy which follows a 15-year old boy with two objectives: to lose his virginity before his next birthday, and to stop his mother (Sally Hawkins) from leaving his father for a motivational speaker (Paddy Considine).
