Trailer Watch: Three and Out

A trailer for Three and Out, an upcoming British comedy starring Mackenzie Crook (Gareth Keenan from the British Office), Colm Meaney, Gemma Arterton and Imelda Staunton (Vera Drake and Dolores Umbridge in the Potter movies), is online courtesy IGN Movies. The film centers on a railway conductor who has accidentally killed two people in a month. Upon learning that his company will “buy him out” if he accidentally kills a third, he’s coaxed by his friends to enlist someone to fill the role.

The fucked up premise and a terrific cast lifts up this low-budget comedy; it looks like it could be a good time. Three and Out is out in England next weekend (after a London premiere on the 21st); there is no US release date yet. Small UK comedies like these usually only cross the Atlantic if they’re huge hits back in the mother country, though, so more likely we’ll have to wait for DVD.

    Heh, oops. I didn’t know how to spell his first name and forgot to go back and paste it in after I wrote the rest of the post. :)
