The first trailer has been released for Are You Here, an upcoming dramedy starring Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis, and Amy Poehler. The film tells the story of two childhood friends who embark on a road trip back to their hometown after one of them inherits a large sum of money from his recently deceased estranged father. This doesn’t look too bad, even though we’ve seen Galifianakis play this role many times before. There does seem to be some drama here, as opposed to Galifianakis’ troubled persona only being inserted for laughs. We’ll see.
Written and directed by Matthew Weiner, the 9-time Emmy Award winner known for his work on The Sopranos and for creating the hit series Mad Men.
The film’s poster comes via EW.com:
ETA: USA (limited) & VOD – 22 August, 2014.
