The ‘BlackBerry’ Film Trailer Looks Funnier Than You’d Expect, ‘Watch’

The film BlackBerry is based on the 2015 book Lost the Signal: The Hidden Story Behind BlackBerry's Incredible Success and Stunning Collapse, authored by Globe and Mail reporters Jacquie McNish and Sean Silcoff.

When we learnt last year that a BlackBerry film was in the works, we had no idea it would be a comedy. But, based on the caravan published today, it appears to be a lot lighter story than other recent films about technology, like The Social Network and Steve Jobs.

The film stars Jay Baruchel (How to Train Your Dragon, Goon) and Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) as Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie, the former co-CEOs of the Canadian corporation Research in Motion.

They aren’t household names, yet they both played significant roles in the history of mobile communications. The iPhone might not have existed if the BlackBerry had not been successful.

According to the teaser, the film will cover everything from BlackBerry’s beginnings as a crazy idea among a few college students (director Matt Johnson also co-stars as RIM co-founder Douglas Fregin) to its humiliating demise as it struggled to stay up with the iPhone and Android handsets.

It’s a classic innovator’s dilemma story: RIM changed communication by tapping into early cellular networks, yet it missed out on the potential of touchscreen handsets that didn’t require physical keyboards.
