'Mad Men' Creator's Film Debut 'Are You Here' Premieres a Poster
Right now the final season of "Mad Men" is on a mid-season break, much like AMC's split of the now finished "Breaking Bad," but series creator Matthew Weiner has his first feature film coming to theaters sometime this year. The film premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival to mixed reviews, but the film has seen some changes since debuting at the festival. Combine that with the fact that Weiner took eight years to get the script to star Owen Wilson and shooting the film throughout two different breaks from "Mad Men," we're still excited to see the film that also features Zach Galifianakis and Amy Poehler. The first poster for the film has just debuted, so a trailer shouldn't be too far behind. Look below!
Here's the first poster for Matthew Weiner's Are You Here from Entertainment Weekly:
Are You Here is written and directed by Matthew Weiner ("Mad Men" & "The Sopranos"). The film follows two childhood best friends, weatherman and bachelor about town Steve (Owen Wilson) and bi-polar screw-up Ben (Zach Galifianakis). The pair travel home when Ben’s estranged father dies, only to discover that he’s actually inherited a ton of money. There, the friendship is tested thanks to complicated relationships with Ben’s sister Terry (Amy Poehler) and Steve’s lust for Angela (Laura Ramsey), Ben’s father’s too-young widow. There's no official release date set, but the film is expected in theaters this year.
Well that's not the movie I would've expected to come "From the creator of Mad Men". As far as comedy goes that's a solid leading cast, though. But the poster is very generic.

It's not only generic it looks like a preschooler made it

I'll be very curious to check this out. Weiner has proven his TV chops. But features can be such a different monster.
