Brett Gelman Almost Stabs Michael Cera in the Face in the ‘Lemon’ Trailer

It’s unlikely any trailer this year will scream “deadpan, idiosyncratic indie comedy headed straight to on-demand” louder than this one for Lemon. The feature-length debut of writer-director Janicza Bravo, the film stars suddenly-omnipresent comedian and co-writer Brett Gelman as an awkward middle-aged guy struggling with his career and a recent breakup. It’s the type of thing where a “sip every time the sad man solemnly stands, quiet and alone” drinking game quickly becomes dangerous. Gelman’s fellow as-seen-on-TV ringers Michael Cera, Judy Greer, Nia Long, Gillian Jacobs, Jeff Garlin, Martin Starr, Rhea Perlman, and Megan Mullally co-star. You can order it at home or see it in select theaters August 18.

    Are we sure this isn’t just a trailer for the next Arrested Development season and they’ve recast Tobias?

    I hope it gets a theatrical release so I can be one of the 10 people who watch it in my go-to theater.
