The first trailer for A Futile and Stupid Gesture has been released – and it looks hysterical!

The upcoming Netflix comedy follows the ups and down of the creators of the infamously funny National Lampoon business back in the 1970s and ’80s.

Will Forte stars as Doug Kenney with Domhnall Gleeson as Henry Beard, the duo behind the National Lampoon magazine and production company that spawned Animal House and Caddyshack.

Emmy Rossum, Matt Walsh, Natasha Lyonne, Thomas Lennon, Martin Mull, and Joel McHale also star in the movie.

A Futile and Stupid Gesture will be available for streaming on Netflix starting on January 26, 2018.
