David Wain’s movie about the co-founder of National Lampoon, A Futile And Stupid Gesture is set to premiere on Netflix next month. Up until this point, we’ve only had a few image stills to get an idea about the flick. But today, like it was a bit of a Christmas miracle, Netflix dropped a star-studded trailer for us featuring the likes of Will Forte and Martin Mull (as Douglas Kenney), Joel McHale (as Chevy Chase), Jon Daly (as Bill Murray), John Gemberling (as John Belushi), Rick Glassman (as Harold Ramis), and Jackie Thon (as Gilda Radner). As if the trailer wasn’t enough we also know the film is packed with more funny people portraying other iconic funny Lampooners – Paul Scheer (as Paul Schaefer), Seth Green (as Christoper Guest), Thomas Lennon (as Michael O’Donoghue), and Lonnie Ross (as Ivan Reitman). So basically all the funny people of modern day are portraying funny people of yesterday.
A Futile and Stupid Gesture premieres on Netflix on January 26th.
