Lionsgate has released the official UK trailer for the new Simon Pegg scifi comedy, Absolutely Anything. The film stars Pegg as a everyday guy muddling through life and in love with his neighbor, played by Kate Beckinsale. His life takes a turn for the fantastically comedic as a host of aliens (voiced by Monty Python alumni Terry Jones, Eric Idle, John Cleese, and Terry Gilliam) set upon him the power to do anything he wishes. This ensemble cast isn’t complete yet as Pegg struggles with his abilities and turns to his dog, Dennis, for advice. Robin Williams lent his iconic vocal style to the canine character as his final voice role.
Absolutely Anything follows a disillusioned school teacher (Pegg) who suddenly finds he has the ability to do anything he wishes, a challenge bestowed upon him by a group of power-crazed aliens (voiced by Cleese, Gilliam, Jones, Palin & Idle), watching him from space.
As he struggles to deal with these new found powers and the events that subsequently arise, he calls upon his loyal canine companion Dennis (voiced by Robin Williams) to help him along the way.
Mishap after mishap finally leads him to the ultimate conundrum that all men dread and at which many have failed….should he choose the girl….or the dog….?
