Finally, we have our first ridiculously odd film of 2008: Visioneers. Truth be told, I knew nothing about this film when Cinematical received the exclusive clip above. And if you watch that clip, you'll say "okay" and get mildly turned on by Judy Greer in a nightgown with her husband (played by the wonky Zach Galifianakis) and friend "Betty." But then you have to watch the trailer for this flick (either on the official website or after the jump). That's when Visioneers takes it up to a whole different level; one that involves lots of yelling, exploding people, middle fingers and what has to be one of the oddest stories we'll see on screen this year. Quite frankly, I cannot wait to see this.
Here's the synopsis from the site: George Washington Winsterhammerman lives an ordinary life. He has a wife, a kid, a house and a boat. Every day George gets in his minivan and goes to work as a Level Three Tunt at the Jeffers Corporation, the largest and most profitable corporation in the history of mankind. It is an utterly comfortable life, but when people around George begin exploding, he fears he might be next. George visits his doctor and learns that the dreams he's been having are a symptom of impending explosion. Unfortunately, George can't stop dreaming, and as the explosion epidemic worsens, he is forced to question the life he's been living.
Visioneers premieres at the Seattle International Film Festival on June 12th and 14th, before hitting up CineVegas (where Cinematical will review) on June 18th and 19th. (I know it's early and it's only a clip and a trailer, but I think I'm in love ...)
