It seems there's no stopping Michael Cera at the moment. Dude is on a tear with "Arrested Development" now back with a new season (in which he not only acted, but also co-wrote), a hit comedy in theaters ("This Is The End," in which he features in a great cameo) and various web efforts courtesy of JASH including shorts "Gregory Go Boom" and "Failure." And that's not mention his arthouse movies, including the upcoming "Magic Magic" (trailer here) and now "Crystal Fairy" (renamed for some reason to "Crystal Fairy & The Magical Cactus," as if that will make it more enticing to Joe Average movie dude).

Michael Cera, Crystal Fairy

It seems there's no stopping Michael Cera at the moment. Dude is on a tear with "Arrested Development" now back with a new season (in which he not only acted, but also co-wrote), a hit comedy in theaters ("This Is The End," in which he features in a great cameo) and various web efforts courtesy of JASH including shorts "Gregory Go Boom" and "Failure." And that's not mention his arthouse movies, including the upcoming "Magic Magic" (trailer here) and now "Crystal Fairy" (renamed for some reason to "Crystal Fairy & The Magical Cactus," as if that will make it more enticing to Joe Average movie dude).

Anyway, the trailer has arrived and it promises a sun-kissed, low-key little comedy. The film, directed by Sebastian Silva (who also helmed "Magic Magic"), finds Cera playing an American in Chile, who finds himself attached to the hippie-esque Crystal (Gaby Hoffman, in what many are calling a pleasantly surprising performance) and going on a road trip to trip on the ultimate high. Catching the film at Sundance this year, we said it's "full of oddball touches like swelling dramatic strings accompanying an unwanted phone call, the camera lingering on two dogs fucking in the foreground of a shot (never not funny), and moments of sadness scattered throughout that lend emotional heft to the comedy."

Unique and distinct, "Crystal Fairy" arrives on July 12th. And in case you're wondering, the music in the trailer is Manu Chao's "Bongo Bong" and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros "Man On Fire."
