Coming Attractions: Extract

Extract

Click here to watch the trailer for Extract

Mike Judge, the creator of Office Space, has made another workplace-themed comedy. Joel, played by Jason Bateman, owns an Extract plant and must juggle his personal and professional problems.

J. K. Simmons, Kristen Wiig, and a bearded Ben Affleck round out a promising cast. Bateman, of Arrested Development and Hancock fame, has proved that he can be a great straight-man for the over-the-top characters to work off of; and it looks like Extract used Bateman in that capacity.

With the strong comedic sensibilities of Mike Judge, and some of my favorite comedic actors, I’m going to give this a strong “four” on the Potential Meter.

    Loved Jason Bateman in Arrested development. I agree the cast looks good but I thought the trailer, while it gave me a laugh or two, looked a little slow.

      I think I put the wrong link in. That youtube video actually looks like a short clip from the movie, not a trailer. It was a bit slow.
