Trailer for Between Two Ferns: The Movie

Zach Galifianakis film hits Netflix this month

Netflix has released the trailer for the movie based on Zach Galifianakis awkward internet talk show Between Two Ferns.

The promo reveals the plot revolves around the comedian and his oddball crew taking a road trip to complete ten high-profile celebrity interviews to restore his reputation after almost killing Matthew Mcconaughey during one interview.

Will Ferrell, who co-owns the Funny Or Die production company which makes the series, is seen giving the ultimatum. Galifianakis then demands the show be aired on a network, not just the internet, saying: 'I'm a white man and I'm straight – I deserve it.'

Interviewees include Benedict Cumberbatch, but the hapless host struggles over his name.

The movie co-stars Paul Rudd, Tiffany Haddish, Brie Larson, Keanu Reeves, Jon Hamm, David Letterman, Jason Schwartzman, Peter Dinklage, Adam Scott, John Cho, Chance the Rapper, Rashida Jones, Hailee Steinfeld, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen and Tessa Thompson.

The film will be released to Netflix subscribers on September 20.

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
