The trailer for Miranda July’s The Future has gone online. As I said in my review when I caught the film at Sundance, it’s a strange movie and that’s a large part of its charm. The trailer does a good job of conveying the oddness of some of the plot’s elements (shelter cat as a narrator, talking moon), the offbeat humor of the main characters (played by July and Hamish Linklater), as well as the honest emotions that prevent the movie from being just a pile of quirk.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The Future opens July 29th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Future:
THE FUTURE tells the story of a thirty-something couple who, on deciding to adopt a stray cat, change their perspective on life, literally altering the course of time and testing their faith in each other and themselves.
