Text size Aa Aa

Dark comedy Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World by Lorene Scafaria goes on general release in the UK in July.

When Dodge’s – played by Golden Globe award winner Steve Carell – wife runs away after it is announced a meteorite will collide with the earth, he is left on his own.

He meets his neighbour, played by Oscar nominee Keira Knightley, and the pair agree to take a trip so Carell can find his high school sweetheart and Knightley can see her family before the meteorite hits.

Knightley said: “I think it’s about the end of the world. It’s about a kind of road trip and unlikely friendship that happens at the end of the world and I think what it’s really about is kind of what becomes important in life, like actually what are the important things.”
