Since director Joe Carnahan decided to take the marketing into this own hands, we’ve already seen a number of clips, images, and even a gag reel from his new film Stretch. However, the first official Stretch trailer has now been released online, giving us a better handle on the plot for this colorful, insane-looking action comedy. The story revolves around a down-on-his-luck chauffeur (Patrick Wilson) who attempts to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious, eccentric billionaire (James Badge Dale). As we can see from this trailer, he comes across a number of unusual characters during his service, and things appear to get weirder and weirder as the night wears on. I loved the introspective nature of Carnahan’s The Grey, but it’s nice to see that he’s still able to have fun with things like this and The Blacklist, and Stretch certainly appears to be a very wild ride indeed.
Watch the Stretch trailer after the jump. The film also stars Chris Pine, Jessica Alba, Ed Helms, Norman Reedus, Ray Liotta, Shaun Toub, Brooklyn Decker, and David Hasselhoff. Stretch will be available on iTunes and Amazon on October 7th and on VOD on October 14th.
