After knocking it out of the park with What We Do in the Shadows earlier this year, Jemaine Clement is back at bat with People, Places, Things. The Sundance romcom stars Clement as a graphic novelist, professor, and father in Brooklyn. (Don’t worry, he gets to retain his cute Kiwi accent.)

He’s still reeling from his last breakup when one of his students (Jessica Williams) sets him up with her mom (Regina Hall). Things seem to unfold in that familiar quirky-cute Sundance way after that. Watch the People Places Things trailer after the jump.  Read More »

In an eerily prescient clip from the comedy sequel, the gang arrives in 2025 to discover that Williams has taken over Stewart’s old desk. Watch the Daily Show Jessica Williams clip from Hot Tub Time Machine 2 after the jump.
