The first trailer for The Details has been released. The film stars Tobey Maguire as a married, philandering man who makes a series of very bad decisions and suffers through the repercussions. The pic actually debuted at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival where it was picked up by The Weinstein Company, but the fact that they’ve held on to it this long isn’t exactly a good sign. The trailer is rather strange, and it looks like one of those off-kilter dark comedies that either really works or really doesn’t (you can read Matt’s mixed review right here). Given the significant delay, I’m betting it’s the latter.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Elizabeth Banks, Laura Linney, and Ray Liotta. The Details will be available VOD on October 5th followed by a theatrical release on November 2nd.

Here’s a synopsis for The Details:
When hungry raccoons discover worms living under the sod in a young couple’s backyard, the pest problem sets off a wild and absurd chain reaction of domestic tension, infidelity, organ donation and murder by way of bow and arrow.
