I’m not sure I’d actually call this video a ‘teaser trailer’ as such, it’s more of a show-reel of the cast in the movie called, The Company Men which has an all-star cast including Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner, Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Cooper, Maria Bello, Craig T. Nelson. The film centers around three guys who all work in a large corporate company all trying to survive as times get hard. This is obviously very apt at the moment since the world is in recession. The Company Men is directed by John Wells and is to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.

Synopsis: One of the first casualties of a corporate downsize is Bobby Walker, a hot-shot sales executive who is living the idyllic life—complete with two kids and a mortgaged picket fence. His boss, and founder of the company, doesn’t take Bobby’s severance well, and he storms into the boardroom to demand a reprieve of the severe measures. He learns quickly that some choices are out of his hands, and this is only the beginning. We embark on a journey that is all too familiar in today’s recessionary economy: one that will test friendships, loyalties, and family bonds.

John Wells explores the powerlessness of losing one’s job while examining how anger, fear, and forced humility can replace the security of “normal.” The inspired casting of great actors, lending their formidable insight to this timely story, makes The Company Men a tribute to America’s unsung heroes: hard-working men caught in life’s unexpected misfortunes.
