A murder over a simple burglary? Nothing is so simple any more.

ATO Pictures released the official trailer for comedy “Thin Ice” through Apple iTunes.

The film stars Greg Kinnear, Alan Arkin, Billy Crudup, David Harbour, Bob Balaban and Lea Thompson.

Here is the official synopsis:

Mickey Prohaska (Greg Kinnear) is a small-time insurance agent looking for a way to jump-start his business, reunite with his estranged wife (Lea Thompson) and escape the frigid Wisconsin weather. This self-proclaimed master of spin believes that salesmanship is about selling a story — all he needs is a sucker willing to buy it. He hits pay dirt with a lonely retired farmer (Alan Arkin) who is sitting on something much bigger than an insurance commission. But Mickey’s attempt to con the old man spins out of control when a nosy, unstable locksmith (Billy Crudup) with a volatile temper dramatically ups the stakes, trapping him in a madcap spiral of danger, deceit and double-crossing. Blending dark comedy and delirious Midwestern noir, THIN ICE reaches a breaking point that no one — least of all Mickey Prohaska — could ever see coming.

The film is directed by Jill Sprecher (“Thirteen Conversations About One Thing,” “Clockwatchers”). Jill and Karen Sprecher wrote the screenplay.

ATO Pictures will release “Thin Ice” in selected cities on February 17.
