From the lowbrow beginnings of Beavis and Butthead, Mike Judge has gone on to create quite a body of work — his new cartoon, The Goode Family, and the classics Office Space and King of the Hill. His last film, IDIOCRACY, was buried in its studio release but has gone on to become a cult favorite. His new film, EXTRACT, will be getting the San Diego treatment, and like everything else he’s done, it may be worthy of some attention.

Judge, Bateman, Kunis and Wiig will also participate in a press line and select 1:1 interviews beginning at 2:30pm in Press Room 28E.
We’d like to invite you to stop by the “Extract” booth (#3913) to check out our fun green screen setup where you can insert yourself into the “Extract” trailer. Videos will be edited and encoded for your video-sharing enjoyment on a collectable USB drive that will also contain exclusive “Extract” photos, posters and other Miramax goodies.
“Extract,” is the latest comedy from writer/director Mike Judge (“Office Space,” “King of The Hill,” “Beavis and Butt-Head”). Joel, played by Jason Bateman (“Juno,” “Arrested Development”), is one step away from selling his flavor extract factory and retiring to easy street when a freak workplace accident sets in motion a series of disasters that put his business and personal life in jeopardy. The film also stars Kristen Wiig (SNL, “Ghost Town”), Mila Kunis (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) and Ben Affleck (“He’s Just Not That Into You”).
