Seeking a Friend Trailer: The Last Days of Steve Carell and Keira Knightley

Steve Carell recently left The Office to commit full-time to his movie career, but in Seeking a Friend For the End of the World, his days are already numbered. A seventy-mile-wide asteroid named Matilda is barreling towards Earth, and as everyone prepares for the end of the world, Carell's last hours get off to a rough start when his wife suddenly ditches him. Luckily, he's got a fetching British neighbor in the form of Keira Knightley to comfort him, and the two set off on a journey to reunite with family members and lost loves in the time they've got left. Will it work ... and by "it," we mean this movie, which needs to strike exactly the right whimsical tone to succeed? We'll see, but at least the trailer is stuffed with some of our most favorite people (Connie Britton! Patton Oswalt! Gillian Jacobs!) to make the end of the world seem just a little bit brighter from here.
