I first profiled Richard Ayoade in June 2009, as a member of a small group of UK Stars of Tomorrow – the next generation of young British actors and filmmakers set to wow global audiences, based on their “impressive” recent past performances.

Ayoade, born an only child to a Nigerian father and Norwegian mother, is known more for his comedic talents, though he does have some behind-the-camera experience – mostly in TV and music videos for smaller bands. His feature film debut, Submarine, which debuted at the Toronto Film Festival last fall, where it was picked up by The Weinstein Company, is produced by Ben Stiller. The film has been very-well received by press and non-press, and it’s been buzzed about quite a bit since then.

What’s it about? The story is set in Wales, in 1987, and involves a character by the name of Oliver, described as the anti-hero teen, played by Noah Craig Roberts. The film centers of Oliver’s burgeoning romance with a pyromaniac (Yasmin Paige), and his attempts to stop his mother (Sally Hawkins) from cheating on his father, with a repulsive, “new age” motivational speaker (played by Paddy Considine).

The film is based on the novel of the same name by Joe Dunthorne.

It'll be released stateside on June 3rd, so the rest of us will get to see the man's work; and in anticipation of that, The Weinstein Company has released a new trailer for its USA release, which you can watch below:
