The great trailers keep on coming! Magnolia Pictures thought we needed a bit of hilarity for Friday, and have released the red band trailer for World's Greatest Dad, the R-rated comedy starring Robin Williams.
Red Band Trailer: World's Greatest Dad
Williams plays Lance, a high school poetry teacher who copes with his son's death from a freak masturbation accident by faking a suicide note to spare the family shame. The note, published without his permission, ends up becoming a sensation, and Lance reignites his writing career by penning a personal journal he claims was written by his son (Daryl Sabara). Gilmore plays Claire, a teacher who has an affair with Lance.
While I didn't really get to see much of this synopsis in the trailer, it is pretty laugh out loud funny. Maybe Williams has found his calling.
