New Kristen Wiig Movie: Trailer

I’m looking forward to this. The new trailer for Kristen Wiig’s summer comedy (opening July 19) puts us in a dysfunctional but hilarious family situation. A playwright who once seemed destined for great things, Wiig’s character, Imogene, finds herself in the midst of a breakdown. When her harebrained mother (Annette Bening) comes to the hospital and reluctantly assumes custody of her as she recovers, antics ensue in “Girl Most Likely.” A cross-generational comedy (with a trailer soundtrack featuring a song from Now — Icona Pop’s “I Don’t Care” and a song from Then — Blondie’s “Dreaming”) about moving home again, it doesn’t look completely original — but it’s Wiig’s Bridesmaids‘s follow-up and is directed by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, the duo that helmed American Splendor. Toss in guys — Darren Criss and Matt Dillon, who seems to be riffing off his There’s Something About Mary character – and the movie looks like a lot of raucous find-yourself-again fun.
