Michael Cera invents a Tyler Durden - dark trailer for YOUTH IN REVOLT!

youth-in-revolt-trailer I was ready to crap all over Youth in Revolt, a Dimension Films R-Rated comedy opening Oct. 30th (no U.K. release yet) starring Michael Cera once again as a socially awkward/uncomfortable hapless teenager who is desperate to get laid (though I'm sure his characters would settle for a bit of foreplay) performance but once this trailer gets going man, this is one dark picture - where the only ending foreseable is a nasty one. A Taxi Driver/Observe & Report kind of ending. Do I hope too much? In the movie Cera plays Nick Twisp, a guy who falls for a girl who doesn't want a relationship with him, so he decides to "create a supplementary persona named Francois Dillinger. Bold, contemptuous of authority. And irresistible to women!".

Cera plays it a little differently than usual. It's the closest we have seen him touch the dark side and I'm sure this was a blast for him to film. After the Tyler Durden/Fight Club twist, things seem to get real interesting and though it's packed full of supporting roles and cameo's from fellow comedic thesps (Zack Galifianakis, Justin Long, Steve Buscemi, Jean Smart, Ray Liotta) which can get tiresome in this kind of picture, I think Cera might pull this one through. Miguel Arteta, director of a forgettable 2002 Jennifer Aniston comedy The Good Girl helmed this adaptation of a C.D. Payne novel.
