FilmBuff Movies and Gunpowder & Sky have released the official trailer and poster for the upcoming comedy-drama When Jeff Tried to Save the World, starring Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory, Killing Winston Jones). Check out the trailer below as well as the poster in the gallery!

Jeff (Jon Heder) is the manager of an old-school bowling alley called Winky’s World. Every day he is the first to arrive and the last to leave. He has memorized the shoe sizes of community regulars and the quirks of his fellow employees. Routine is Jeff’s middle name, and it’s up to him to keep everything and everyone in order.

When Jeff’s boss Sheila (Candi Milo) tells him that her soon-to-be ex-husband Carl (Jim O’Heir) is selling Winky’s, he takes matters into his own hands. While keeping this plan on a need to know basis, Jeff also struggles to hide Winky’s World from his family who, for years, believed Jeff was putting his computer engineering degree to use. With little help from the other employees, Jeff is forced to face the reality that his life as he knows it may slip out of his grip. A secret hidden within the walls of the building may be exactly what it takes to keep the ball rolling when the lanes begin to look more like a maze than ever before.

When Jeff Tried to Save the World also stars Jim O’ Heir, Anna Konkle, Maya Erskine, Brendan Meyer, and Candi Milo. The film was directed by Kendall Goldberg who co-wrote the screenplay with Rachel Borgo. Shane Simmons, Jimmy Seargeant, and Sam Slater serve as producers.

The movie will arrive on VOD on December 7, 2018.
