Todd Solondz returns this summer with a brand new film, and while it looks like the director behind behind such controversial fare as "Welcome To The Dollhouse," "Happiness" and "Storytelling" is going a bit more mainstream, don't be fooled. Containing his usual wry observational wit and incisive viewpoint, "Dark Horse" finds him once again exploring some fascinating characters trying to find their place in the world. And we've got the exclusive premiere of the trailer to give a taste of what's in store.

Todd Solondz returns this summer with a brand new film, and while it looks like the director behind behind such controversial fare as "Welcome To The Dollhouse," "Happiness" and "Storytelling" is going a bit more mainstream, don't be fooled. Containing his usual wry observational wit and incisive viewpoint, "Dark Horse" finds him once again exploring some fascinating characters trying to find their place in the world. And we've got the exclusive premiere of the trailer to give a taste of what's in store.

Led by Jordan Gelber, a character actor who has appeared on shows like “Boardwalk Empire” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” the story centers on a thirtysomething man still living with his parents (Christopher Walken and Mia Farrow), and working for his father; Gelber's character seeks out a relationship with a woman in a similar state of arrested development (Selma Blair) in an attempt to shed his label as the dark horse of the family. As usual, Solondz has had no problem attracting a game cast, with Justin Bartha and Zachary Booth playing, respectively, the protagonist’s brother and cousin, while Aasif Mandvi features as Blair’s ex-boyfriend, with Donna Murphy rounding things out as Walken’s secretary.

After playing film festivals around the world in 2011, "Dark Horse" will open in limited release on June 8th and you can find more information about screenings near you on the film's Facebook page. Watch below.
