T.S. Eliot once wrote that the world would end not with a bang but a whimper. And even though Earth is threatened by a ginormous asteroid in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, this doesn’t seem to be your typical CG-heavy end of days. Instead, Steve Carell plays a sad-sack bursting with regret who wants to spend the little time he has left searching for his first love that got away. So he and his pretty neighbor Keira Knightley take a road trip while the world slowly grinds to a halt — and people begin to get freaky-deaky with each other. Clearly, these two will not get together during Dodge’s — yes, his name is Dodge — “Hail, Mary” hunt for true love. Never, ever. Watch the trailer below.
More palatable than The Road, no?
