We just spotted this preview clip of A Happening of Monumental Proportions, the upcoming comedy movie directed by Judy Greer and starring Common, Katie Holmes, Bradley Whitford, Allison Janney, Marla Sokoloff, Anders Holm, Rob Riggle, Storm Reid, Al Madrigal, Mary Birdsong, Lily Mae Silverstein, and Monica Young:
“The discovery of a dead body at an unassuming elementary school derails what was supposed to be an uneventful Career Day. As a pair of clunky administrators attempts to hide the corpse, school-parent and recent widower, Daniel Crawford (Common), heads to work only to find himself at the center of an office conspiracy: someone’s sabotaged the office coffee machine, and the under-caffeinated management is thirsty for blood. A few meetings (and several lies) later, Daniel’s asshole-of-a-boss turns him into a scapegoat and terminates his employment. Daniel finds himself heading to his daughter’s career day to speak about a job he no longer has. What follows is mayhem. Punches are thrown; suicides are pondered, and scandalous affairs are brought to light. By the end of the day, Daniel–along with a motley crew of characters–finds catharsis and begins to confront the grief that’s crippled him since the loss of his wife.”
