Above is the trailer for Jason Bateman’s latest offering The Longest Week, starring Billy Cudrup, Olivia Wilde and Jenny Slate and it looks and feels very mcuh like a Wes Anderson effort.
Written and directed by Peter Glanz the movie tells the story of 40 year-old Conrad Valmont (Jason Bateman), the over-educated, under-employed heir to the Valmont Hotel fortune, who finds himself cut off from his allowance following his parents’ abrupt divorce and tossed out into the unforgiving streets of the Upper West Side. Luckily, he is taken in by his old friend Dylan (Billy Crudup), and returns the favor by immediately falling for Dylan’s girlfriend Beatrice (Olivia Wilde). Hilarity duly ensues.
The Longest Week goes on general release on September 5th.
