Sundance: ‘Safety Not Guaranteed’ for FilmDistrict

Written by on January 29, 2012 

(Thankfully, I’m not referring to their financial situation.)

Instead, Variety reports that they’ve made their first (and probably only) acquisition of Sundance: Colin Trevorrow‘s feature debut, Safety Not Guaranteed. This semi-time travel comedy, scripted by Derek Connolly, stars Aubrey Plaza as a magazine employee who encounters “a classified ad seeking a partner for time travel,” which soon leads her to “[develop] feelings for the paranoid but compelling loner (Mark Duplass) and seek to discover what he’s really up to.”

Our reaction to it was generally lukewarm, while some other critics had a similar (if slightly warmer) reaction to Guaranteed as a whole. And that really kind of solidifies my preconceived, negative notions about the film; I’ve never been terribly fond of either lead, for one thing, nor do I find myself all too interested in the basic plot descriptions provided thus far — though, to be fair, I try not to judge films on that aspect alone. But, hey, if FilmDistrict can give it a wide release and the desire strikes me upon its opening, I’ll probably give it a look. That counts for something, right?

Have you paid any attention to Safety Not Guaranteed? Will this buy make you seek it out?
