The first trailer for Scot Armstrong’s feature directorial debut just surfaced and even though it isn’t laugh-out-loud funny, I’m still holding out hope. Search Party stars Silicon Valley’s Thomas Middleditch as Nardo, a guy who was just about to get married and live happily ever after, but instead winds up naked in the middle of the Mexican desert. Now it’s up to his buddies played by TJ Miller and Adam Pally to bring him home.
Armstrong wrote Semi-Pro and co-wrote films like Old School and The Hangover Part II so he’s certainly had hits and misses over the years, but with talent like Middleditch, Miller, Pally, Krysten Ritter, Alison Brie and Jason Mantzoukas on the Search Party roster, it’s hard to imagine the film falling completely flat. Hopefully the official domestic trailer for the film will be a little more refined and include more winning jokes, but until then, hit the jump to check out the Search Party international trailer. The film was originally set for a September 12, 2014 release, but has yet to be rescheduled.
Here’s the synopsis for Search Party:
24 hours ago, Nardo (Thomas Middleditch) was standing at the altar next to the love of his life. Now he’s shivering in just a pair of gold leggings in the Mexican desert, and the only men who can save him are his best friends (TJ Miller, Adam Pally). Writer Scot Armstrong (Road Trip, Old School and The Hangover: Part II) makes his directorial debut in a comedy that follows a rescue by the guys you call when you’ve run out of all other options.
