In a World ... Trailer: In a World Where Lake Bell Is a Triple Threat

In a world where a likable comedic actress writes, directs, and stars in a movie about voice-over artists, things look pretty damn funny. Lake Bell is said actress, who was inspired to write In a World...  by her own childhood dream to voice act. The film, which opens in limited release on August 9, tells the story of a vocal coach who aspires to one day narrate movie trailers, just like her voice-over legend father. Also, thankfully, she lives in a world in which funny people like Demetri Martin, Ken Marino, Tig Notaro, and Nick Offerman hang around. It’s a story that garnered Bell the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Watch the trailer below and you’ll see you live in a world where you want to see this movie.
