The new movie trailer for Dedication came out while we were away from the real world at a place called Comic-Con). Dedication is a new independent romantic comedy about a misogynistic children’s book author (Billy Crudup) who is forced to work closely with a female illustrator (Moore) instead of his long-time collaborator and only friend (Tom Wilkinson).

The Weinstein Co nabbed the film at Sundance this year. I heard some descent buzz for the film at the festival, but was unable to find a convenient open slot for a screening. A couple weeks ago, TWC released a movie poster for the film, which I really dug. The trailer has shades of Garden State and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Check it out after the jump.
I’m a sucker for Mandy Moore films. Call it a crush. But even Moore can’t save a horrible mess of a film, which was evident in Because I Say So and License To Wed. So the question now becomes: Did Moore star in two or three bombs in 2007? We’ll find out.
Dedication is scheduled to hit theaters on August 24th 2007.
