Great, now I want a Cubano. Or some carne asada. Really, watching the Chef trailer at lunchtime was maybe not the best idea, but here it is.
Only a couple of days after debuting its official poster, the full trailer for writer/director/star Jon Favreau’s latest is here, with ample food and jokes on display. I really want the food, though.
From the official synopsis:
“Chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) suddenly quits his job at a prominent Los Angeles restaurant after refusing to compromise his creative integrity for its controlling owner (Dustin Hoffman), he is left to figure out what’s next. Finding himself in Miami, he teams up with his ex-wife (Sofia Vergara), his friend (John Leguizamo) and his son to launch a food truck. Taking to the road, Chef Carl goes back to his roots to reignite his passion for the kitchen — and zest for life and love.”
Favreau’s joined by Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., and Bobby Cannavale. They’ve all got jokes, except for Johansson, who I believe has no lines.
Chef will be in theaters May 9th.
