The Los Angeles Film Festival announced the first Gala Screenings for the 2012 Festival and “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World” with Keira and Steve Carell is one of them. Let’s hope Keira will attend the gala screening!
Today the Los Angeles Film Festival, in conjunction with Presenting Media Sponsor the Los Angeles Times and Host Partner L.A. LIVE, announced the Gala Screenings for the 2012 Festival.
Focus Features’ Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, will World Premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival. The movie stars Steve Carell and Keira Knightley with Connie Britton, Adam Brody, Rob Corddry, Gillian Jacobs, Derek Luke, Melanie Lynskey, T.J. Miller, Mark Moses, Patton Oswalt, and William Petersen. Taking audiences on a humorous, moving and intimate journey against an epic backdrop of Earth’s final days, the film is Lorene’s feature directorial debut (she previously adapted Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist). Set in a too-near future where time at once stands still and is slipping away forever, the writer/director explores what people will do and how they will feel when humanity’s end is near. Focus will release the film nationwide on June 22, 2012.
