[Trailer] – The Do-Deca-Pentathlon

15 May

I’ve been saying for a while that Mark Duplass is going to have a pretty great 2012, as he’s set to appear in two seriously promising films, Your Sister’s Sister and Safety Not Guaranteed, and also giving us two films he directed with his brother Jay. One of them has already been released, Jeff, Who Lives at Home, which I gave an A- to and stands as my fifth favorite film of the year to date. The other one is the long-shelved The Do-Deca-Pentathlon, which just got a trailer which you can watch after the cut.

This was shot before the filmmaker brothers started working with bigger names in Cyrus, but the quirky mumblecore brand the duo’s known for is apparently intact, so let’s hope that those of us who are fans of their work won’t be let down by this film, which by the way follows a pair of brothers who create their own 25-event Olympics to see who comes out on top.

Written and directed by Jay and Mark Duplass; starring Mark Kelly, Steve Zissis and Jennifer Lafleur. The Do-Deca-Pentathlon opens July 6.
