Lake Bell's Sundance Comedy In A World... Takes You Into The World Of Trailer Voice-Overs

With Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's apocalyptic comedy This Is The End in theaters this week - a film that sees Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson all playing themselves - we here at Cinema Blend have definitely found ourselves in the mood for some big meta Hollywood concepts. So how about we bring you the first trailer for a movie about making trailers?

Actress Lake Bell has made her writing/directing debut with a new film called In A World..., a star-stacked comedy that had its debut at this year's Sundance Film Festival. The film was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize and took home the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, but now finally Roadside Attractions has picked up the film for distribution and ahead of its release has put out a brand new trailer, which you can see above courtesy of Yahoo!

Like This Is The End, Bell's movie also seems to have at least a couple of famous faces playing themselves, including Eva Longoria (who seems to be practicing a cockney accent by holding a cork between her teeth). The film looks pretty damn funny, and it's hard to argue with a cast that includes Ken Marino, Nick Offerman, Rob Corddry, Fred Melamed, Demetri Martin, Tig Notaro and Geena Davis.

In the film, Bell stars as Carol a vocal coach who lives in the shadow of her father (Melamed), the king of movie trailer voice-overs. But when it's announced that they are looking for a trailer voice for a hot upcoming new franchise, Carol suddenly finds herself fighting for the gig.
