Get a Job Trailer (2016)
Trailer for Get a Job. A multi-generational comedy about four recent college graduates who discover that their lofty expectations and the realities of adulthood are two very different things. Teller will play Will Davis, who finds his true calling after struggling through an entry level job. Kendrick plays Jillian Stewart, Will's type-A girlfriend, who lives her life according to the strictest of plans. Cranston plays Roger Davis, Will's father who is hunting for a job at the same time as his son. Braun, Mintz-Plasse and Jackson will play Will's three friends, (Charlie, Ethan and Luke, respectively), each of whom find careers with some interesting results. Brie will play Tanya, one of the group's sharp-witted co-workers. Pharoah will play Skeezy D, who starts his own recession-proof business.
This project was a strange one. If you were wondering why Miles Teller's scars aren't as pronounced as we've seen recently -- don't forget he had a near-fatal car accident -- that is because he and the rest of the cast are a whole bunch younger.
Filmed in 2012, Get a Job kept failing at joining any festival circuits, causing talent such as Bryan Cranston and Marcia Gay Harden to not know if an ensemble project they were both involved in would ever find its way into theaters. It was such a dilemma in fact that a petition was created and sent to CBS Films for the film's release. Strong notion, but it barely received over one-thousand signatures; probably confirming CBS Films' distribution fears.
By the time summer of 2014 arrived, Anna Kendrick admitted that she didn't know if the film would ever be released...
... And now Get a Job is getting a full theatrical release! Why now? One theory I'm running on is that Miles Teller has become more of a household name, and let's not forget his performance in Whiplash. Other than that, this film just has too many big names to be left on some dusty shelf somewhere.
Then again: The trailer does give an idea of what CBS might have been afraid of. It was 2012, the economy is still not great, and a film focused on millennials and unemployment is nobody's idea of escape. Looks like this film will have to rely on its cast, if nothing else, to bring audiences to theaters.
