Watch: First Trailer for Christopher Guest's Mockumentary 'Mascots'
"This fascinates the hell out of me!" Neflix has unveiled a trailer for the new Christopher Guest film, a mockumentary called Mascots about a group of sports team mascots competing for the most prestigious award in their field, the Gold Fluffy. This looks hilarious and brilliant at the same time, you just have to see the trailer and understand. Before Mascots hits Netflix, it'll premiere at the Toronto and London Film Fests this year. The ensemble cast includes Jennifer Coolidge, Parker Posey, Zach Woods, Jane Lynch, Fred Willard, John Michael Higgins, Tom Bennett, Bob Balaban and Oscar Nuñez. This looks so good, and it seemingly came out of nowhere, which is happening often with Netflix gems these days. Enjoy.
Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Christopher Guest's new film Mascots, direct from YouTube:
Mascots is a new comedy from Christopher Guest, director of Waiting for Guffman and Best in Show. Starring many of his regular troupe of actors, this latest film takes place in the ultra-competitive world of sports mascots where they compete for the most prestigious award in their field, the Gold Fluffy. Mascots is directed by veteran comedy filmmaker Christopher Guest, of films like Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind and For Your Consideration previously. With writing by Christopher Guest and Jim Piddock. Guest's new comedy Mascots will play on Netflix and start streaming on October 13th later this fall, after it premieres at a few film major festivals including Toronto and London. Looking forward to this?

When my dad made me watch Best in show years ago my first instinct was to say "fuck off, this looks stupid" and yet to this day I enjoy watching it. This looks right along those lines.

Excellent, love his movies! It's great to see that most of his usual players have returned, just a shame there's no Eugene Levy or Catherine O'Hara.

Few parts are hilarious, with a good dose of subtle humor, and some parts are worthy of Rogen, that is, unnecessarily gross.
