Lately, Jon Favreau has been known for his big screen spectacles, but for his latest "Chef"—a return to his more indie-oriented roots of "Swingers"—the only special effect may be what's inside the secret sauce. Yep, Favreau is diving into the world of food trucks and the first trailer for his film is here.

Lately, Jon Favreau has been known for his big screen spectacles, but for his latest "Chef"—a return to his more indie-oriented roots of "Swingers"—the only special effect may be what's inside the secret sauce. Yep, Favreau is diving into the world of food trucks and the first trailer for his film is here.

Premiering last month at the SXSW Film Festival, the movie brings together a starry ensemble—Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, Scarlett Johansson, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt, Bobby Cannavale, Amy Sedaris, Emjay Anthony, Robert Downey Jr. and famed chef Roy Choi—for the tale of a down-on-his luck chef who finds new inspiration with this kitchen on wheels and travels across the country with his son, with both his career and professional life in the balance. Does it work? Our man in Austin didn't quite think so, though perhaps it'll be interesting enough to see Favreau back working in a minor key.

"Chef" opens on May 9th.
