From the instant In A World… premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, I remember thinking, “I can’t wait to see the trailer for that.” That day is here. Written, directed by and starring Lake Bell, In A World… is the story of young woman trying to make a living in the male-dominated field of voice over work, specifically that of movie trailers. When marketers for a new movie decide to reinstate the classic phrase “In a world” for the film’s trailer, a competition breaks out that pits the young woman against her father (Fred Melamed) and an up and comer (Ken Marino).
Featuring supporting performances by Dimitri Martin, Michaela Watkins, Rob Corddry, Nick Offerman and Geena Davis, the film won the Best Screenwriting award at Sundance. It opens on August 9. Check out meta-trailer below. Read More »

But out of the blue, a third competing project has arrived on the horizon. Funny or Die – yes, really — has just announced the April 15 online release of iSteve, a parodic take on the late Apple founder.
In an inspired bit of casting, former Mac pitchman Justin Long will take the lead as the turtlenecked tech icon. Jorge Garcia plays Steve Wozniak, while James Urbaniak and Michaela Watkins play Bill and Melinda Gates. Personally, I would’ve loved to see Funny or Die take the “Get a Mac” connection one step further with John Hodgman as Gates, but Urbaniak should bring plenty of laughs as well. Hit the jump to read more.
