The 2014 Sundance Film Festival will see the debut of The Color Wheel director Alex Ross Perry’s new film Listen Up Philip, but for now, a teaser trailer has been released. Jason Schwartzman stars as a self-obsessed author awaiting the publication of his “sure-to-succeed” second novel. Facing a dying relationship with his girlfriend (Elisabeth Moss), and an indifference to promoting his novel, Philip is offered the chance to retreat to the summer home of his idol, played by Jonathan Pryce.

This teaser is probably the weirdest trailer I have seen in a while as we see lot of characters talking about Philip as if they were being asked questions about him. It is quite different from other trailers that you wold normally see. The film also stars Krysten Ritter, Josephine de La Baume, Jess Weixler, Dree Hemingway, Keith Poulson, and Eric Bogiosan.
