HBO Films has released the first trailer for Jon Hamm and Larry David's new comedy Clear History. The movie was helmed by Superbad director Greg Mottola from a script written by David, Alec Berg, David Mandel, and Jeff Schaffer. I love David's comedy style, and this looks like it's a very funny movie. I also enjoy seeing Hamm in comedic roles.
The story "centers on Nathan Flomm (David), a former marketing executive at a start-up electric car company who, after losing a fortune due to a petty argument with his boss, is publicly humiliated for walking away from his 10 percent of a company now worth billions. Ten years later, his marriage over and reputation ruined, Nathan has changed his identity and lives a simple life on a small island off the coast of Massachusetts under the new name of Rolly DaVore. But when his former boss (Hamm) shows up to renovate his summer mansion, Nathan vows to seek his revenge and drive his nemesis off the island."
The movie also stars Michael Keaton, Bill Hader, Kate Hudson, and Danny McBride. It premieres exclusively on HBO on August 10th! Watch the trailer and let us know if you think it looks good.
