Watch: Owen Wilson & Zach Galifianakis in 'Are You Here' Trailer
Hot on the heels of the first poster for "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner's feature film debut Are You Here, the first trailer has arrived, and it's a bit awkward. Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis star in the film who head back to their hometown after the latter's father has passed away. Amy Poehler plays Galifanakis' sister who is absolutely appalled that the entire inheritance has been left to her idiot brother. The premise is fine, but the tone in this trailer is so weird. The beats that are meant to be funny feel like they're missing a laughtrack, lingering too long on certain scenes. We hope the movie is better. Watch now!
Here's the first trailer for Matthew Weiner's Are You Here, originally from Yahoo:
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. Millennium Films releases the film on VOD and in theaters on August 22nd.

Please boycott movies from Yahoo. Their player is garbage. It keeps freezing, I can't adjust the volume and it forces you to "accidentally" watch other Yahoo videos. It just sucks.

It also connects to your machine once at the beginning and once more at the end. Devil stuff. Trailer was good though, I'm well into the movie

Zack G. as an awkward, juvenile man-child? Shocking! I totally agree with the missing laughtrack assessment. That trailer can basically be divided into a joke, a long pause, an uncomfortable transition to forced dramatic sentimentality, repeated a half dozen times.

These kind of movies could go either way.. Comedy.. timing is everything... Except for Owen Wilson, not a strong actor in the bunch.
