Taking the filler out of filmmaking.

Trailers: ‘World’s Greatest Dad’

Bobcat Goldthwait and Robin WilliamsSource: First Showing

Magnolia has debuted a red band trailer for Bobcat Goldthwait’s sophomore directorial effort, World’s Greatest Dad, starring Robin Williams. The film is a very dark comedy about a man (Robin Williams) who learns that the things you want most may not be the things that make you happy, and that being lonely is not necessarily the same as being alone. This actually looks pretty damn hilarious. Goldthwait directed Sleeping Dogs Lie in 2006, about a girl whose relationships are destroyed when she reluctantly reveals a past indiscretion with a pet. Check out the trailer below.

Apparently, the trailer doesn’t get into the big reveal of the story which, if it’s anything like Lie, I’m totally in for. Bobcat Goldthwait is a better director than I ever thought he’d be. The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and was ebought by Magnolia Pictures for distribution in the US. It will arrive in very limited theaters starting on August 21st as well as Xbox Live and VOD starting July 24th.
