The official trailer has been released for dark comedy movie Corner Office, starring Jon Hamm.
Corner Office is a film adaptation of a 2014 novel called The Room by Swedish actor Jonas Karlsson.
According to the official synopsis — Misfit Orson (Jon Hamm) finds himself trapped in the absurdities of corporate life. As The Authority’s newest employee, Orson finds it difficult to connect with his enigmatic desk mate, Rakesh (Danny Pudi), as well as with the rest of his colleagues. His alienation deepens when he discovers a room he’s told doesn’t exist – a place that unleashes his true potential, leading to an ascent up the corporate ladder. Buoyed by his newfound confidence, Orson invites a receptionist (Sarah Gadon) into his sanctuary, sparking a climactic clash between the corporate world’s harsh realities and his own wild fantasies.
Corner Office is directed by Joachim Back and also stars Danny Pudi, Christopher Heyerdahl and Sarah Gadon.
The movie originally premiered at Tribeca Film Festival in June 2022 and has since been screened at various other festivals.
It is now set to be released in theaters, on digital and on demand on August 4th, 2023.
