More often than not, Simon Pegg is associated with fan-favorite genre franchises like Star Trek and Mission: Impossible, or his action-packed comedy team-ups with Edgar Wright.
But for his next act, Pegg is attempting to elicit smiles through different, less face-punching means. He’s the star of Hector and the Search for Happiness, a new drama about a psychiatrist (Pegg) who goes off on a globetrotting adventure to find out what makes people happy. He’s joined by an all-star cast that includes Rosamund Pike, Stellan Skarsgård, Jean Reno and Christopher Plummer.
Watch the trailer below:
Hector opens on Aug. 15.
