First trailer for Richard Ayoade’s SUBMARINE

This is one trailer we weren't likely to catch during the TV spot extravaganza that was last night's Super Bowl. It's Richard Ayoade's much buzzed about SUBMARINE, which our own Chase Whale adores to the point that it was his second favorite film of 2010 (the film premiered at last year's TIFF and played at this year's Sundance Film Festival technically making it both a 2010 and 2011 release).

Having not seen it, I will use Mr. Whale's own words, which describe the film as " what HAROLD AND MAUDE would look like if they both met and fell in love in a British high school and Wes Anderson was their match maker." And that's enough for me to have this film be at the top of my "Most Anticipated" list.

The film, which got picked up for U.S. distribution by The Weinstein Company, will get its release in the states sometime later this year. Check out the trailer from Facebook via Twitch Film after the break!

"I have been waiting too long for the film of my life. My name is Oliver Tate. This film will capture my particular idiosyncrasies, for example, the way I seduce my classmate Jordana Bevan using only my mind. Also, since my parents' marriage is being threatened by a man who runs courses on Mental and Physical Wellbeing, the film will probably feature some elaborate set-pieces of me taking him down. There will be helicopter shots. There will be slow-mo, but also transcendent moments, like when I cure my father's depression. Knowing me as I do, I will be surprised if this film runs to less than three hours. Note to the press: appropriate adjectives to describe this film include 'breath-taking' and 'irresistible' as well the phrase: 'a monumental achievement'."
