Judge’s ‘Extract’ finds warm Con reception

Bateman and Kunis help present lengthy clips

“Extract” may not have superheroes, wizards, CGI or nonstop action, but Miramax Films found a loving Comic-Con crowd for Mike Judge’s new workplace comedy, “Extract.”

Judge also brought two fantastic pieces of flair in “Extract” stars Jason Bateman and Mila Kunis, allowing them to work their charms on Hall H. Beginning with some crowd-pleasing and lengthy film clips, Judge only intermittently answered questions from the moderator and audience.

However, Judge did say that workplace comedies like “Office Space” and “Extract” were “what he was born to do” and that his disproportionate use of dumb characters to smart ones came from his own personal experience, which drew laughs from the crowd.

Bateman distinguished Judge’s humor as “subtle and sophisticated” and that he doesn’t force a “performance” from his actors, allowing humor to develop organically.

From there, general silliness and fun ensued thanks to the endless charisma of Bateman and Kunis. One of the panel’s most crowd-pleasing aspects was Bateman’s confirmation that there was “no reason to think that (the “Arrested Development” film) wasn’t happening” and that he was more excited than all of you to see this happen” despite the absence of a completed script.
