Another day, another trailer premiere with Ben Affleck at the center. The clip for Affleck’s directorial effort The Town debuted earlier this week, and The Weinstein Company has just released a trailer for the Sundance entry The Company Men. Director John Wells (ER) surrounds Affleck with the likes of Kevin Costner, Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Cooper, Craig T. Nelson, Maria Bello, and Rosemarie DeWitt. Check out the trailer after the jump.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“Bobby Walker is living the American dream: great job, beautiful family, shiny Porsche in the garage. When corporate downsizing leaves him and co-workers Phil Woodward and Gene McClary jobless, the three men are forced to re-define their lives as men, husbands, and fathers. Bobby soon finds himself enduring enthusiastic life coaching, a job building houses for his brother-in-law which does not play to his executive skill set, and perhaps the realization that there is more to life than chasing the bigger, better deal.”
Steve caught it at Sundance in January; you can check out his video review here. I liked what I saw in the clip, but I’m generally a sucker for montages of men tying neckties.
The Company Men hits theaters on October 22nd, 2010. Click over to Yahoo! for HD.
