In a world... where you've heard those words at the beginning of way too many movie trailers, did you ever stop to think who it was behind the voice?
Well, the immensely gorgeous and goofy Lake Bell has written, directed, and is starring in a film that pokes fun at the apparently cut-throat industry of voice over acting. You might recognize her from her acting stints on Adult Swim’s Children’s Hospital or Boston Legal, but this is her first shot at directing a full length feature film. And from what we’ve seen so far in the trailer below, it looks hilarious, especially with a cast that includes Rob Corddry, Nick Offerman, Ken Marino, Demetri Martin, and Eva Longoria, apparently playing a British version of herself. Bell plays a voice acting coach whose main competition is her overbearing father, who apparently thinks that women have no place in the movie trailer voice-over industry.
In a World… is already playing in LA, will be in limited release starting August 16th, and just might go wider soon after if reviews are good.

What do you think of the trailer? Does this look like a comedy you’ll want to see when it comes to a theater near you?
