Jack Black in Bernie

"There are people in town, honey, that woulda shot her for 5 dollars." Millennium has debuted the official trailer on Yahoo for Richard Linklater's new film Bernie, starring Jack Black as the local mortician in a small Texas town, who one day kills a wealthy widow but no one in the town suspects for months. We just teased this based-on-a-true-story film last week with the official poster, and now we get to see how it looks. Shirley MacLaine plays the widow who, frankly, seems like nothing but an annoying bitch, and Matthew McConaughey plays the town's DA, Danny Buck Davidson, who's after him. Looks mildly funny, not bad.

Watch the first official trailer for Richard Linklater's Bernie, in high def from Yahoo:

In the small town of Carthage, Texas, the local mortician (Black) strikes up a friendship with a wealthy widow (MacLaine), though when he kills her, he goes to great lengths to create the illusion that she's alive.

Bernie is directed by Texan indie filmmaker extraordinaire Richard Linklater, of films like Slacker, Dazed and Confused, Before Sunrise/Sunset, Waking Life, Fast Food Nation and A Scanner Darkly previously. This was co-written by Linklater with newcomer Skip Hollandsworth based on a true story. This premiered at last year's LA Film Fest, and will play at SXSW coming up. It will then be released limited by Millennium Entertainment on April 27th this spring. For more updates, visit their Facebook or follow @BERNIEmovie.

I really like Jack Black. A lot of people got sick of him around the time they got sick of Seth Rogen, but I'm a big fan of all his stuff.

nice to see Jack Black back in what could be a hit movie. School of Rock was just okay, IMO, but this looks a lot darker which is a good thing.

Wasn't impressed until 3/4 of the way through when it implies he murders her. Now we've got ourselves something interesting... haha
