Preview: “Dead in a Week (Or Your Money Back)”

Another “cute” hitman comedy, this one about a suicidal lad (Aneurin Barnard), despondent failed writer, all that, who tries and tries to off himself.

And fails at that, too. Well then, nothing for it but to hire Tom Wilkinson, “a professional assassin,” to do the deal.

Christopher Eccleston also stars.

There are a couple of funny lines in this dark trailer for what promises to be a dark scenario with jokey touches — “You’ve just signed your death warrant!” is a winner.

“Dead in a Week (Or Your Money Back)” is supposed to get a limited release Nov. 30.

But will it? I don’t see a US distributor lined up.
