Mike Judge is a hilarious dude, but between Office Space and Idiocracy,
he doesn't have the best track record at the box office he's been royally and repeatedly screwed over by the gleefully incompetent folks at 20th Century Fox. So here's a trailer for his next box office catastrophe/incredibly popular cult hit, Extract, which stars Jason Bateman, Mila Kunis, Kristen Wiig, and a really hairy Ben Affleck! Thankfully, Extract is being distributed by Miramax and not Fox, so maybe it'll come out in more than seven cities.
The trailer itself? Ehhh, not so great. But based on Judge's past record with theatrical releases—and, worse, his past record with theatrical release marketing—I'm thinking/hoping this is a so-so trailer for a pretty great movie. (Then again, I'd go see fucking anything if it had Jason Bateman and Kristen Wiig in it. Seriously, even like Fame, or Mamma Mia, or The Reader.)
