Hector and the Search for Happiness Trailer

A movie with Simon Pegg just naturally has Nick Frost, his hilarious counterpart, in it as well. However, Hector and the Search for Happiness sees the jubilant and rotund Brit absent (although I wouldn’t put it past them to get Frost in with a cameo. Like Pegg in Cuban Fury, whose steely glance stole the movie).

However, it’s not like Pegg is short of great cast members here. Rosamond Pike, Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgård, Jean Reno, and Christopher Plummer round out a stellar group of actors.

And watching this trailer, I can’t help but feel a Walter Mitty vibe. The upbeat nature, the coinciding search for happiness, an absence in Hector’s and Walter’s life. I never got around to actually seeing Walter Mitty though, but I did see the trailer a few times. I will try and do a better job at catching this one.

Hector’s search begins on September 19th, 2014.
