Gravity Ventures has released The Longest Week trailer online. The movie stars Jason Bateman as an affluent 40-year-old whose allowance is cut off by his parents, and is forced to move in with his friend (Billy Crudup). However, their friendship becomes strained as they compete to win the heart of a beautiful woman (Olivia Wilde). This comedy looks so light that it might actually float away, and although I really like the cast (which also includes Jenny Slate), I’m surprised they’re in something that seems so forgettable.
Hit the jump to watch The Longest Week trailer. The film opens in theaters and will be available on VOD on September 5th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Longest Week:
As he eases into adulthood at the age of forty, Conrad Valmont (Jason Bateman), the over-educated, under-employed heir to the Valmont Hotel fortune, is cut off from his allowance following his parents’ abrupt divorce and tossed out into the unforgiving streets of the Upper West Side. Luckily, he is taken in by his old friend Dylan (Billy Crudup), and returns the favor by immediately falling for Dylan’s girlfriend Beatrice (Olivia Wilde). As Conrad attempts to woo Beatrice while keeping both their relationship and his bank balance secret, Dylan tries to set him up with Jocelyn (Jenny Slate). Ever committed to the charade that he eventually finds difficult to maintain, Conrad quickly realizes his charm can only extend so far into debt. Now deep into an extensional reflection, will it take losing everything to make Conrad realize what he can truly become?
