After an unofficial trailer dropped last week and was quickly scrubbed from the Internet, Radius and The Weinstein Company have finally unveiled the official trailer for "The Details." And while this spot contains familiar elements like dialogue and characters, it's still no less quirky (and compelling) that the decidedly odder version that preceded it.

From filmmaker Jacob Aaron Estes ("Mean Creek"), this pricey Sundance acquistion from 2011 (Harvey paid $8 million bones for it, for real) has been sitting on the shelf for a while, and it certainly doesn't look like the most mass audience-appealing pic. Tobey Maguire stars as a doctor in suburban Seattle whose raccoon problem, infidelity and other woes send his life and marriage spiralling out of control. And you know, this actually looks pretty compelling, and it's certainly been a while since we had this kind of surreal, black comedy, so we have to admit we're curious, even if the long shelflife isn't the best augur of things.

Co-starring Elizabeth Banks, Laura Linney, Kerry Washington, Ray Liotta and Dennis Haysbert, "The Details" opens in limited release on November 2nd. Trailer below.
