Terrific Teaser for 'The Company Men'

One of the more intriguing projects of 2010 is John Wells' motion picture debut The Company Men. The teaser trailer embedded below, a minute and a half montage with dialogue nowhere to be found, does a lot to peak my interest of the film. It revolves around three men trying to deal with the repercussions of corporate downsizing at a major company. Given the subject matter, I'm sure comparisons will be made to 2009's Up in the Air, although it doesn't seem this film will have the same comedic touch. 

Shot largely in Boston, MA, Wells' film stars Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner, Tommy Lee Jones, Maria Bello, Chris Cooper, Craig T. Nelson, and Rosemarie DeWitt. A terrific cast it is, and I've been dying to see a follow-up performance from DeWitt after her stunning turn in Rachel Getting Married

John Wells wrote, produced, and directed this film, which does not currently have an official release date. Here's hoping we get one soon.
