When director Mike Judge’s sophomore film Idiocracy was unceremoniously dumped into a small handful of theaters the fall of 2006, the director was so disgusted by his treatment at the hands of the studio, that he stated he wasn’t sure he wanted to direct another film.
The good news is that he apparently has had a change of heart, if the footage in the trailer below is any indication. Judge’s new film, Extract, sees him returning to the workplace, a location he successfully mined for laughs in his debut film Office Space. This time around Jason Bateman will be the office worker who finds his world spinning out of control. Joining him are Ben Affleck, . K. Simmons and Mila Kunis.
The bad news is that we will have to wait until September 4 for the film to hit theaters.
