Safety Not Guaranteed with Colin Trevorrow

So, it’s 26 December, aka Boxing Day, and you’ve had your fill of turkey, roast potatoes, and Christmas pud already.

What you need now is a really great film. And fortunately, you’ll find it at your local cinema in the form of Safety Not Guaranteed.

Director Colin Trevorrow and screenwriter Derek Connolly have crafted a clever sci-fi-tinged comedy from a real classified ad that turned into an internet meme in the mid-noughties.

Mark Duplass (Cyrus) stars as a supermarket worker who believes he’s cracked the time-travel conundrum, while Jake Johnson (New Girl) and Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) play a snarky journo and his intern out to uncover Duplass’ crazy scheme.

I caught up with director Colin Trevorrow recently to chat about memes, creepy locations, Mark Duplass getting into character, broken-down Datsuns, Disney’s The Flight of the Navigator, Star Wars movie sequels, and whether he’d throw his hat in the ring to direct Star Wars Episode 8 or 9. Check out the video to see what Colin had to say:

Safety Not Guaranteed is out in UK cinemas on 26 December.
