I love the bad attitude Aubrey Plaza cops as Parks and Recreation's droll April Ludgate, but she's taking a little departure from all that sarcasm for the indie comedy Safety Not Guaranteed (though it wouldn't be Plaza if she weren't just a little bit snarky). She plays Darius, an intern at a magazine who tags along with a writer (Jake Johnson) for an unusual assignment: track down the poster of a Craigslist ad, Kenneth (Mark Duplass), who's trying to find someone to time travel with. When Darius and co. find him, Darius's research of Kenneth turns into what looks like genuine affection for the eccentric guy.
There are some twee elements to this trailer, but I'm loving this look at the movie, mostly because I like New Girl's Johnson so much (and it's nice to see him playing someone who's more together than Nick). I've also got a soft spot for Duplass, who's usually either behind the camera on his own features or talking filthy about football on FX's The League, but here, he's front and center and proves he's both charming and funny. All in all, I'm pretty eager to see this movie, and shoot, I'd drink the Kool-Aid too if I could time travel to the future for its June 8 release date. Watch the trailer after the jump.
