New Mike Judge Movie 'Extract' Has Culinary Theme
The country's greatest living director, Mike Judge (King of the Hill, Office Space, Idiocracy), has a new release in the offing, due Labor Day. Extract concerns Joel (Jason Bateman), the owner of a flavoring company called Reynolds Extracts, which manufactures "a patented brand of culinary extracts" says the official website. His wife is unfaithful and employees conniving. Other cast members include Ben Affleck, Saturday Night Live's Kristen Wiig, veteran character actor J.K. Simmons (The Closer, etc., etc.), and Mila Kunis (from That Seventies Show).
And here's a second trailer recently debuted at the Comi-Com convention, which reveals that one of the extracts made by Reynolds is root beer.
