Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis bring the dramedy in Are You Here trailer

Unbeknownst to me, I've been a fan of writer/director Matthew Weiner for some time now. He's done extensive work on both HBO's The Sopranos, as well as AMC's Mad Men. Now he's making his feature film debut with ARE YOU HERE, which pairs Owen Wilson with Zach Galifianakis. While the film's been "in the can" for a while now, it's just about to make it's debut, albeit limited, in a few short months.

Check out the trailer:

I have to give Matthew Weiner props for creating something that doesn't feel like The Sopranos or Mad Men. Obviously when you hear names like Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis, your first thought might be a straight up comedy, but Weiner looks like he's going to deliver a little something different with his debut. Sure, it does feature Galifianakis doing some things completely out of left field, which most films have him do, but given the issues with his now-deceased father brought up in the preview, I think there might me some more serious psychological ramifications in store for him. Color me intrigued, if anything.

ARE YOU HERE, starring Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis, Amy Poehler, Jenna Fischer, Laren Lapkus, and Laura Ramsey, is scheduled for a limited release on August 22, 2014.
