A new Hector and the Search for Happiness trailer has gone online. Based on the book of the same name by François Lelord, the film stars Simon Pegg as the titular Hector, an eccentric psychiatrist who’s going nowhere and whose patients aren’t getting any happier. One day, he musters up the courage to set out on a quest to find out if happiness really exists. I had actually never seen any of this film’s trailers before today, so I went and revisited the first and second trailers as well. And I think I prefer this brand new one the most. It sells the character’s need to go on this journey a bit more. Or maybe I’m just getting old and schmaltzy. The comedic elements of the first two trailers are still present, but now I get the restlessness of the character’s life.
Hit the jump to check out the new Hector and the Search for Happiness trailer. The film opens in the U.K. on August 15th and in the U.S. on September 19th. Rosamund Pike, Christopher Plummer, Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgard, and Jean Reno also star.
