Lionsgate has revealed the British trailer of sci-fi comedy Absolutely Anything, I am a huge fan of British comedies and Simon Pegg and this movie in particular looks spectacular. Starring Simon Pegg and featuring the final voice role of Robin Williams as Dennis the dog.
Directed by Monty Python alum Terry Jones, Absolutely Anything follows a disillusioned school teacher (Pegg) who suddenly finds he has the ability to do anything he wishes, a challenge bestowed upon him by a group of power-crazed aliens, watching him from space. As he struggles to deal with these new found powers and the events that subsequently arise, he calls upon his loyal canine companion Dennis (voiced by Robin Williams) to help him along the way. Mishap after mishap finally leads him to the ultimate conundrum that all men dread and at which many have failed….should he choose the girl….or the dog….?
Voicing the aliens will be Jones and his Monty Python cohorts John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, and Michael Palin. Kate Beckinsale, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Eddie Izzard, Joanna Lumley and Rob Riggle.
British release date is August 14, 2015. No U.S. release date has been set.
