Brad’s Status Trailer Starring Ben Stiller


For most of his career, Ben Stiller has alternated between big studio comedies and smaller art house ones, but as he gets older he seems to be gravitating a little more towards the latter. His latest film finds him teaming up with writer-director Mike White (Year of the Dog), who has followed a similar path but primarily as a screenwriter. Stiller plays a middle-aged man who is taking his son on an East Coast tour of colleges while grappling with his own life achievements (or perceived lack thereof). With a supporting cast that includes Jemaine Clement, Austin Abrams, Jenna Fischer, Michael Sheen, Luke Wilson and White himself, this looks like a low key comedy that could be both funny and touching. Brad’s Status hits select theatres on Sept. 15th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
