'The Last Big Thing'

Today on Trailers from Hell, Josh Olson talks 1998's unsung cult comedy "The Last Big Thing," starring Mark Ruffalo.

In spite of terrific reviews this small indie directed by Dan Zukovic and featuring an early appearance by Mark Ruffalo, remains relatively unknown. Director Zukovic cast himself as Simon Geist, an angry young man who produces a bogus publication called "The Next Big Thing," dedicated to eviscerating pop culture in all its forms. Zukovic, still toiling in the indie circuit, continues to produce and direct unconventional fare including 2004's "Dark Arc" and his latest, "Scammerhead."
