Just as this year’s SXSW Film Festival line-up has been officially unveiled, a new trailer for one of last year’s films has arrived online. Somebody Up There Likes Me stars Nick Offerman (Parks & Recreation) as a man who is caught in a love triangle of sorts with his best friend Max (Keith Poulson) and their co-worker Lyla (Jess Weixler).
While the movie received decent reviews, it seems that Offerman’s presence and deadpan delivery are the main selling point. Writer / director Bob Byington (Harmony and Me) isn’t particularly well-known, but the opening quote of the trailer does promise “a Todd Solondz film directed by Wes Anderson.” How can you resist? Somebody Up There Likes Me hits theatres on March 8th; watch the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
