Jon Favreau’s ‘Chef’ Serves Up First Trailer

Warning: do not watch this trailer if you’re hungry.

Jon Favreau’s newest movie, “Chef,” has whet audiences’ appetites with its first official trailer.

Premiering at the SXSW Film Festival last month, “Chef” stars Favreau (who also wrote and directed) as a chef in a trendy Los Angeles restaurant who is suffocated by the owner’s demands for a very particular, boring menu.

After Favreau’s spat with a critic who panned the menu goes viral, the chef finds himself unemployed. So he starts a food truck. The movie follows Favreau, his son and a former coworker (John Leguizamo) as they drive and cook their way back up the Los Angeles foodie ladder.

The indie also stars Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt, Bobby Cannavale, Amy Sedaris, Emjay Anthony, Robert Downey Jr. and Los Angeles’ famed food truck kingpin, chef Roy Choi.

“Chef” bows in May.
