New Featurette: SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED

When an unusual classified ad inspires three cynical Seattle magazine employees to look for the story behind it, they discover a mysterious eccentric named Kenneth, a likable but paranoid supermarket clerk, who believes he’s solved the riddle of time travel and intends to depart again soon. Together, they embark on a hilarious, smart, and unexpectedly heartfelt journey that reveals how far believing can take you.

“Safety Not Guaranteed” stars Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass, Jake Johnson and Karan Soni. Directed by Colin Trevorrow and written by Derek Connolly, the film is produced by Marc Turtletaub, Peter Saraf, Stephanie Langhoff, Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. Executive Producers are Mark Duplass, Jay Duplass, John Hodges and Michael B. Clark.

In “Safety Not Guaranteed,” three employees of Seattle Magazine head to the scenic, seaside community of Ocean View, WA to find and profile the man behind a bizarre and hilarious classified ad looking for a partner to travel through time. Darius (Aubrey Plaza) is a disillusioned live-at-home college grad, who interns at the magazine. Along with her fellow intern Arnau (Karan Soni), a studious Biology major working at the magazine to diversify his resume, and their hard partying boss, Jeff (Jake Johnson), the threesome set out to discover and  write a story about the mysterious person behind the preposterous ad. The mismatched trio land in Ocean View with no more than a PO Box number to guide them in their investigation, but no sooner have they checked into their hotel than Jeff abandons the job to track down a long lost love interest who lives in the beach community.

Darius asserts herself as the lead reporter and finds their subject, Kenneth (Mark Duplass) – an offbeat character – stocking canned goods at the local grocery store. Darius’ disaffected attitude serves her well, perhaps for the first time ever, and she quickly endears herself to Kenneth as she poses as a candidate to accompany him on his mission. Kenneth is leery of Darius’ motives and is not entirely convinced that she isn’t working for the “secret agents” that are tracking his every move, but through a series of training exercises she begins to gain his trust. And while the absurdity of their mission is without question, the dedication and skill that Kenneth puts into his preparations are no laughing matter.
