The trailer for BlackBerry (up here!), which was directed by Matt Johnson and had its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival, was released by IFC Films on Wednesday. It debuts on May 12 in cinemas.

The lighthearted movie, which received favorable reviews in Berlin, follows the tale of Mike Lazaridis (Jay Baruchel) and Jim Balsillie (Glenn Howerton), who mapped out the route of the world’s first smartphone’s stunning ascent and disastrous decline.

Cary Elwes, Saul Rubinek, Rich Sommer, Martin Donovan, Michael Ironside, and Johnson make up the ensemble cast of the movie.

The first phone on the market with a keyboard and internet connectivity was developed by the Canadian company Research in Motion, which Lazaridis and Balsillie founded. It quickly gained notoriety among influential people from Wall Street to Hollywood.

Johnson and Matthew Miller collaborated on the writing, which is an adaptation of the book Losing the Signal: The Hidden Story Behind the Incredible Rise and Dramatic Collapse of BlackBerry by Jacquie McNish and Sean Silcoff.

“The filmmakers have taken a tech-heavy business book and given it life, soul, and sadness in the most human of terms, and that is no simple job,” wrote Pete Hammond in his review of the Berlin-produced movie.
