‘Table 19’ Trailer: Anna Kendrick Leads a Band of Wedding Outcasts in Jeffrey Blitz’s Comedy

The comedy reunited her with "Rocket Science" director Jeffrey Blitz.

Anna Kendrick plays a raucous plus-one in this week’s “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates,” bit it isn’t her only marriage-themed comedy in the works. The actress also headlines next year’s “Table 19,” directed by Jeffrey Blitz from a script by Mark and Jay Duplass, which looks considerably more restrained but no less funny.

Kendrick stars as the recently dumped former ex-girlfriend of the groom-to-be’s husband; her stock in the family now lessened, she’s relegated to “the table that could disappear in the middle of the wedding and no one would even notice.” Among the other misfits exiled to table 19 are Stephen Merchant, Lisa Kudrow, Craig Robinson, Tony Revolori and June Squibb, all of whom commiserate over their shared status as outcasts.
