Netflix has released the first trailer for Between Two Ferns: The Movie, the feature film expansion of Zach Galifianakis’ quirky Internet talk show. The pic hits the streaming service September 20.
The guest stars on the pic written by Galifianakis and Scott Aukerman and directed by Aukerman are legion in the first look, from Matthew McConaughey, Brie Larson, David Letterman and Peter Dinklage to Chrissy Teigen, Jon Hamm and Benedict Cumberbatch. Tiffany Haddish, Jason Schwartzman, Awkwafina, Adam Scott, John Cho, Chance the Rapper and Paul Rudd also guest star.
All are part of the overall plot that centers on Galifianakis’ dreams of becoming a talk-show star, which are dashed when Will Ferrell (also in the film) discovered his public access TV show Between Two Ferns and uploaded it to Funny Or Die, turning Galifianakis into a laughing stock. Zach and his crew (and his ferns) go on a road trip to complete a series of high-profile celebrity interviews and restore his reputation.
Still, it’s the zinger interviews that star in the trailer. Example. Galifianakis to guest McConaughey: “I noticed you’re wearing a shirt. Is everything OK?”
