Watch: 'The Skeleton Twins' Trailer Starring Bill Hader & Kristen Wiig
Roadside Attractions has debuted a trailer for one of our favorite films from the Sundance Film Festival, starring Bill Hader & Kristen Wiig as brother and sister. It's a film titled The Skeleton Twins and is actually much more of a sweet drama (they oversell it as a comedy here) about two depressed siblings who reconnect back at home, and figure out where their lives are headed. The cast includes Ty Burrell, Luke Wilson, and Boyd Holbrook, though it's really all about Hader & Wiig giving two earnest and remarkable performances. Ethan praised the film at Sundance, saying it has a "superb blend of laugh out loud comedy, and heartbreaking drama." I agree and recommend watching this (despite the trailer), as it's an indie gem.
Here's the first official trailer for Craig Johnson's The Skeleton Twins, direct from Roadside's YouTube:
After ten years of estrangement, twins Maggie (Wiig) and Milo (Hader) coincidentally cheat death on the same day, prompting them to reunite and confront how their lives went so wrong. As the twins' reunion reinvigorates them both, they realize that the key to fixing their lives just may lie in repairing their own relationship with each other. The Skeleton Twins is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Craig Johnson, of the film True Adolescents previously. The script is written by Craig Johnson and Mark Heyman. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where it was picked up by Roadside Attractions. The Skeleton Twins arrives in theaters starting September 19th this year.

Bill Hader is this generation's Dan Aykroyd.

Probably going to be a slow burn film. Looks like it has promise. Love those two.
