Boasting a lengthy title, and the inclusion of both Steve Carell (The 40 Year Old Virgin) and Kiera Knightley (Pirates of the Caribbean), Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World is an upcoming indie comedy/drama that’s careering ever closer to its release date, and now has its official UK trailer available for you to view below.

Carell and Knightley find themselves Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World when they (along with everyone else on the planet) learn that a massive asteroid is hurtling towards the Earth, and is set to destroy every living thing on Earth; so with only three weeks left to live Carell’s wife leaves him, and he attempts to both fit in an entire mid-life crisis, meet up with his high-school girlfriend, and team-up with Knightley in order to get her back to her family before the inevitable end.

Written and directed by Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist writer Lorene Scafaria, Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World co-stars Patton Oswalt (Young Adult), Connie Britton (Spin City), T.J. Miller (Cloverfield), Gillian Jacobs (Community), William Petersen (CSI), Rob Coddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), Adam Brody (Mr & Mrs Smith), and Melanie Lynskey (Two and a Half Men), and is due to be released in the US on June 22nd, before making its UK release date on July 13th.

    Love this. Going to be sticking it on the site myself this week. Funny, a bit depressing and quite warm. I’m hopeful.
