"Safety Not Guaranteed" Trailer is Finally Here! (And Seattle Mag is in it!)
Well, our conference room is in it.
Set in Seattle, Safety Not Guaranteed follows aspiring journalists who work for Seattle magazine (teehee!). A writer and his interns set out to write a story about a man who thinks he has discovered time travel, and heartwarming shenanigans inevitably ensue. Several scenes from the film were shot on location in Seattle mag headquarters in SoDo. A few staffers even stood in as extras; it will be exciting see who made the final cut.
Especially since we're hearing good buzz about the movie since it appeared at Sundance, where it picked up an award for screenwriting. Judging from the trailer, there's plenty to look forward to from quirky actors Aubrey Plaza (Parks & Rec) and Mark Duplass (Humpday; The League).
And in case you're wondering, the answer is: yes, all of our editorial meetings are that well-attended and intense.
Magic like this don't come easy.
Allegedly, the movie comes to "theaters" June 8. We'll keep you posted.
