Owen Wilson and Ed Helms go on a dad hunt in the Father Figures trailer
Warner Bros. Pictures and Alcon Entertainment have revealed the new trailer for their December 22 comedy Father Figures (previously titled “Bastards”), starring Owen Wilson (Midnight in Paris, Zoolander 2) and Ed Helms (The Hangover films, We’re the Millers). Check out the Father Figures trailer below!
Wilson and Helms are Kyle and Peter Reynolds, brothers whose eccentric mother raised them to believe their father had died when they were young. When they discover this to be a lie, they set out together to find their real father, and end up learning more about their mother than they probably ever wanted to know.
Father Figures also stars J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), comedian Katt Williams, NFL Hall of Fame quarterback-turned-actor Terry Bradshaw, Ving Rhames (the Mission Impossible films), Harry Shearer (The Simpsons), and Oscar nominee June Squibb (Nebraska), with Oscar winner Christopher Walken (The Deer Hunter), and Oscar nominee Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs, Guardians of the Galaxy) as the twins’ mother.
Veteran cinematographer Lawrence Sher (The Hangover films) directed from a screenplay by Justin Malen (Office Christmas Party). The film was produced by Academy Award nominee Ivan Reitman (Up in the Air), Ali Bell (Draft Day), and Academy Award nominees Broderick Johnson and Andrew A. Kosove (The Blindside). Serving as executive producers were Tom Pollock, Scott Parish, Chris Cowles, Chris Fenton, and Timothy M. Bourne.
